Wicked Comics have revealed that globally renowned comic book creators Jason Howard (The Astounding Wolf-Man, Super Dinosaur), Richard Starkings (Elephantman), Tim Perkins (Worlds End Vol 1- The Riders on the Storm, Thundercats, Doctor Who) and London-based Maltese creator Sean Azzopardi (Necessary Monsters) will be attending the Malta Comic Con 2014.

They join a star-studded line-up of guests including Yishan Li, Rufus Dayglo, Andrew Wildman, Guillermo Ortego, Steve Scott, Mickey Lam, Mike Collins, Cliodhna, Dave Taylor, Christian Ward, John-Paul Kamath, Michael Dialynas, Lew Stringer, Daniela “Iella” Attard, Mario Alberti, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, Gordon Rennie and Emma Beeby.

The sixth edition of this popular event will be held at St James Cavalier, Valletta between November 29 (10:00-18:00) and November 30 (11:00-19:00).

Tim Perkins has praised St. James Cavalier as a ‘superb’ location.

“It is by far the best locale I have ever seen a comic convention held within and the atmosphere created by the organisers is second to none,” Perkins said. “”The organisers have set a precedent for all other conventions on how to make the guests and visitors totally welcome and at home.”

“The inclusive nature the organisers nurture through the involvement of children and young adults in the school workshops is perfect for a growing art form and in turn future industry in Malta,” Perkins said. “They are a credit to the country and to the medium of comics.”
