Having been raved at about Malta Comic Convention for a number of years, I couldn’t be more excited to be finally making it out there. I’ve only heard good things about the festival and the enthusiasm of its attendees, and can’t wait to finally meet everyone myself” stated Dan Watters. The sentiment was shared by Enrica Eren Angiolini who enthused “Malta is so close to Italy, but I have never had the pleasure of visiting it. And there is no better occasion than this comic con to do it! I can’t wait!“
