Event Details

Wicked Comics are proud to announce that the 8th edition of the Malta Comic Con (MCC) will be held on Saturday 3rd December (10am-6pm) and Sunday 4th December (11am-7pm) 2016. The Malta Comic Con 2016 will take place at the south end of the Malta Fairs and Convention Centre (MFCC) in Ta’ Qali (next to the Millennium Stand). Established in 2006, the MFCC is Malta’s largest indoor multi purpose venue and is home to some of the best events on the Island.

“The Malta Comic Con continues to be the most popular pop culture event on the Island and the biggest platform for Maltese creators to showcase their skills, sell their creations and interact with their fans. The continuous presence of some of the leading names in the comic industry and up and coming creators form all over the world continues to aid the development of the Maltese Comic Scene. The Malta Comic Con has also developed a reputation for being one of the most exciting destinations for comic symposium and each year more creators seek to be part of this event. Thanks to all those who were and continue to be, in some capacity involved with the Malta Comic Con, the convention has grown to the extent that finding the right venue to host it in has become a challenge worthy of an Avengers and Justice League cross over. Although help from fictitious characters was never going to materialise one thing we could count on was the understanding and support offered by Ms. Anita Mifsud and the rest of the MFCC crew who provided us with the perfect venue to host our convention in. We’re super excited about the possibilities the new venue offers us and would like to take this opportunity to thank both Ms. Mifsud and the rest of MFCC crew as well as all those who hold the Malta Comic Con at heart and promise to do our best to deliver the best show yet”, said Chris Le Galle co-founder of Wicked Comics.

The intimate and friendly atmosphere prevalent at the Malta Comic Con ensures that our visitors can spend quality time with their favourite creators who are always happy to chat, sign, sketch and create commissioned artwork for their fans. As customary, we will once again provide a varied guest roster of professional writers and artists who have worked on a number of popular characters for all the major comic publishers as well as others who have been publishing quality independent books. With virtually no queueing the Malta Comic Con provides the ideal platform for fan-creator interaction. Complementing our guests will be a number of up and coming creators from abroad as well as a plethora of talented local creators.

The official Malta Comic Con Cosplay competition and the Fat Spidey Roaming Cosplay Awards will be returning. In addition to the various skits performed by our fabulous cosplayers, Marianne Galea and her Fantasy Showgirls will also be performing themed dance routines. Professional photographers will be available on both days for everyone in attendance who wishes to have some quality pictures taken.

The video game area will once again be buzzing with activity ranging from retro to currents gaming and the fan favourite competitions will also be returning to determine the best gamers in Malta. There will also be more table top gaming than there has ever been before. Along with a number of gaming clubs and exciting game developers, the popular war gaming organisation W.A.R.S will also be present running a variety of introductory table-top and role playing games. So both hardcore gamers and beginners can join the fun.

Fans can also look forward to much more exciting and interactive activities such as quizzes, sketch challenges, work shops, informative and entertaining talks, Q&As and discussion panels featuring a number of professional guests and moderated by leading pop culture journalists! Some of our guests’ majestic artwork will also be exhibited during the show and to round things off nicely one of the Islands most popular comics retailer Pandora’s Box Collectibles will be joining a number of other retailers in offering an assortment of comic related memorabilia. In other words there will be something fun for everyone!

Testimonial from previous Malta Comic Con guest Renee Witterstaetter (Eva Ink Artist Group)

“I can honestly say, having attended festivals all over the world; Brussels, Paris, The Netherlands, China, etc. that the convention in Malta is one of the best organized and culturally relevant events that I have ever attended. The attention to detail during the organization of the show was wonderful. Providing a venue for creative people from around the world to arrive, share views and ideas, and go back to their own countries to share their experience. What I also greatly appreciated was the efforts on the behalf of the convention staff to make sure that we became totally aware of the country of Malta and the rich history of this nation. In Short, I truly enjoyed every minute of my time at the Malta Comic Con. It was educational to say the least! And the cultural exchange that it provided for us all, is unmatched”.
