Melksham Comic Con is a small comic con returning for its second event in August 2013 after a successful Kick starter campaign.

(by the way Melksham is in Wiltshire… yeah, I had to look it up!)

We didn’t go to the inaugural event simply but I’ve read nothing but good press about it am astounded by the guests that they have already lined up. Look at this list, and this just the writers that jumped out for me!

Kieron Gillen – Current writer of top Marvel comics Iron Man and Young Avengers. Recent writer for Uncanny X-Men and the Thor title Journey Into Mystery before the recent Marvel NOW! Launch.

Simon Spurrier – Writer who works mainly on 2000AD, Simon has also broken through to the US comic industry and writes mainly for Marvel. Currently writer on X-Men Legacy in the new Marvel NOW! series.

Rob Williams – Writer, working mainly for 2000 AD. He has worked for Marvel Comics on X-Men and Deadpool titles, as well as Ghost Rider and Wolverine. In 2011, Rob signed an exclusive contract with Marvel. He has also written for Star Wars and RoboCop comic books.

The full list is here.

And better yet, as a not-for-profit event tickets are just £5.

So stick 31st August in your diaries!
