A sentiment shared by Giula Della Ciana who said, “I am very excited! I have never attended a convention outside my home country of Italy. Thank you for giving me this great opportunity!”

“Ortego and Azzopardi have been a part of our family for quite some time now. Their exceptional talent aside they’re amongst the finest people I know,” said Chris Le Galle, co-founder of Wicked Comics. 

“The fans love them and so do we so we can’t really imagine a Malta Comic Con without them. We’re also excited and pleased to welcome Parr, Dani and Della Ciana whose distinctive and impressive styles will surely make them a hit during this year Malta Comic Con,” he added.
