ComicCon Asia’s inaugural event puts “go big or go home” to the test by bringing in the biggest possible comic book personality: Stan ‘The Man’ Lee!
The Man will be in Manila, Philippines to meet fans, so crack out your copies of Amazing Fantasy #15s and prepare yourselves for the long queues.
Clearly, this isn’t going to be one of Stan’s 30-second cameos that he’s so well known for as the legend will be there for the whole 2 days.
Additionally, fans of the long-running series Power Rangers will get to meet long-time favourite and veteran Power Ranger Walter Jones, actors of Zack, the original Black Ranger.
ComicCon Asia will be split into five different zones, each catering to an aspect of common fandom: Manga & Anime; Comics & Literature; Toys & Gaming; Movies, Television & Animation; and Cosplay.
“What makes ComicCon Asia different, aside from it being a regional convention participated by attendees and exhibitors from all over Asia, is the way we put a premium on the Filipino artistic potential,” Pauline adds. “More than an avenue for bringing home world-class entertainment, ComicCon Asia serves as a platform for growing our creators’ industry and taking it to brand new heights.”
ComicCon Asia also promises to feature more than just your run-of-the-mill convention features with additional activities catered to local talents, paving their way towards entering the industry with workshops by veterans like Harvey Tolibao.
ComicCon Asia 2018 will be held at the SMX Convention Centre, Manila, on the 24th and 25th of Philippines!
