The intimate and friendly atmosphere prevalent at the Malta Comic Con ensures that everyone in attendance can spend some quality time with their favorite creators who are always happy to chat, sign, sketch, and create commissioned artwork for their fans. As customary as these things are, the con 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 current gaming and the fan favorite 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 yeah, 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, plus Q&As and discussion panels featuring a number of professional guests, moderated by leading pop culture journalists!
