  • Talk: The Thrill of an Alternate World

    Some people sit back and passively wait to be entertained by others. Others try hard, more, some might say, than they need to. Role-playing is an activity best suited to those who thrive on challenges and find the greatest satisfaction comes from pushing their mind to thinking beyond the confines of the mundane world. Since its introduction almost half a century ago, tabletop roleplaying has evolved from an eclectic hobby, to a fully-fledged subculture with millions of players worldwide. Join Christianne Briffa and Heathcliff Bonnici from the popular gaming club W.A.R.S for their talk in order to learn more about immersing your imagination in a fictional world through the cooperative hobby of role-playing.

  • Special Event: The 1 Minute Superhero Sketch Challenge

    Moderator: Samantha Abela
    Participants: Tim Perkins, Michael Dialynas, Dave Taylor and Rufus Dayglo.

    Come join the fun as Malta Comic Con 2014 guests Tim Perkins, Michael Dialynas, Dave Taylor and Rufus Dayglo go head to head in this light hearted entertaining challenge. Spread across two rounds leading to a showdown final between the winners of both rounds, this event requires the participants to sketch randomly drawn superheroes in the space of 1 minute. If this in itself wasn’t cool enough, you (the audience) will decide the winners each time and may also get some of the sketches as a reward. And don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the Superheroes because as the judges you will see an image of each superhero drawn but the participants will not be so lucky and will have to sketch the first thing that comes to their mind when the name of the superhero is read.

  • “The Maltese Comic? A discussion led by Dr Ġorġ Mallia on the state of Maltese comics today.

    While there has been a renaissance in the interest in comics in Malta over the last few years, and new comic creators are budding and developing like never before, the situation remains one in which locally created comics are not thriving in proportion to the interest. Why is this?

    Comics scholar Ġorġ Mallia, who himself was at the forefront of the first Maltese comics upsurge in the 1980’s, leads a discussion involving a number of Maltese comics creators, in order to determine the state of Maltese comics, and how they can develop to fulfill their promise. The aim of the discussion is pro-active … looking for ideas to improve the situation and to strike out for a solid Maltese comics industry.

    Gorg Mallia will be joined on the panel by Tim Perkins, Sean Azzopardi, Daniela Attard, Audrienne Degiorgio, Ryan Sicluna, Fabio Agius and Chris Le Galle, but all those interested in Maltese comics creation are also invited ton attend and participate”.
