Following the success of the first Mini Malta Comic Convention held last year as part of the Malta Street Art Festival, Wicked Comics in association with the Valletta Cruise Port are proud to announce that the Mini Malta Comic Convention will be returning this year.
This year the Mini Malta Comic Convention will be part of Colour Fest 2016 an open air event celebrating colour in all its form, which will be taking place on Friday 15th, Saturday 16th, and Sunday 17th April at the Valletta Waterfront. This family oriented event will be free of charge and feature the Mini Malta Comic Con at its core, live music, bouncing castles and other play areas for children, artisan stalls, as well as a number of other fun interactive activities in which everyone can join.
The idea behind the second edition of the Mini Malta Comic Con is to offer attendants of the Colour Fest a free taste of what the Malta Comic Con is all about. Consequently, it will comprise most of the components present during the convention; local artists, retailers, gaming, a photography area with professional photographers taking free photos, and costumed dance routines performed by Marianne Galea and her Fantasy Showgirls. Cosplayers will be glad to learn that this year the Mini Malta Comic Con will feature a free cosplay competition on Sunday, while cosplayers are also invited to perform skits on Friday and Saturday and anyone who comes in costume will automatically be with a chance to win the Fat Spidey Roaming Cosplay Award.
On Friday and Saturday the event will kick off at 6.30pm till 11pm, while on Sunday it will start from noon till 5pm.
