The Maltese Islands, officially the Republic of Malta, lying just 80 km from Sicily is one hell of a spot for a comic con! And the city of Valletta is a gorgeous choice to host the convention in!
Founded in 1565 the city of Valletta boasts Renaissance cathedrals, Baroque palaces, beautiful beaches, and a thriving nightlife. Come on! Look at this place!
So what are they offering in the way of comic con goodness? Let’s see, this is the 6th year of operation for Malta Comic Con (organized by Wicked Comics) and if past guest lists are any indication this will be a great show.
So far they’re listing Dave Taylor, Christian Ward, writer/publisher John-Paul Kamath (London Horror Comic), Yishan Li, Rufus Dayglo, Andrew Wildman, Guillermo Ortego, Steve Scott, Mickey Lam, Mike Collins, Cliodhna, Michael Dialynas, Lew Stringer, Daniela “Iella” Attard, and many more. They’ve got panels and screenings listed as well. If you’re in the area or plan to be this is a convention to attend. The tickets for the weekend are €15 (approx $20 US) and the location seems amazing. They even have some ticket and accommodation deals set up at the site, the prices are very reasonable, go here for details.
