This coming Saturday (5th December) sees this year’s Wigan Winter Comic-Con at Robin Park Arena. The SFFN will be there to report on the goings on and perhaps even get to chat with some of the special guests.
Despite promising myself that I wouldn’t go to any more conventions this year (for the sake of my bank balance mostly), discovering that there was one happening on my doorstep made it incredibly difficult to turn it down. A lot of these regional comic cons have sprung up lately and our own Jay Johnson recently spoke to Paul Jones the Events Director at Showmasters about these regional events.
At Wigan Comic Con this weekend you can expect to see some major stars of tv and film, as well as a host of comic book writers and artists.
One of the key people to look out for will be the Sixth Doctor himself, Colin Baker. Alongside him will be Terry Molloy who played Davros opposite him in Revelation of the Daleks! Also, representing the new series, Jemma Redgrave (Kate Stewart) and Ellis George (Courtney Woods) will be there.
Game of Thrones fans will be able to see Ian McElhinney (Ser Barristan Selmy), Ian Beattie (Ser Meryn Trant), Fintan Mckeown (Ser Amory Lorch) and Eugene Simon (Lancel Lannister).
A full list of guests can be found on the North West Comic Cons website.
We look forward to seeing you there!
