The third installment of the Malta Comic Con has come to an end. This third edition was a blast for various reasons and it wouldn”t have been possible without the help that the Wicked Comics Team received. The organizing team spent many sleepless nights trying to figure out how to make this year”s convention bigger and better than the previous two. Family and friends were an important asset to all of us on the Wicked Comics Team, for their constant support and for believing in us. The journey to success was an arduous one with many ups and downs however the team was solid and the love for the comics culture prevailed.
Even though not even a week has passed since St.James Cavalier was emptied from all the tables, chairs, posters, drawings, paintings, sketches, books and comics; Wicked Comics is already making plans for next year”s convention. The team looks forward to hear any comments you might have, being positive or negative so that next year”s comic con is even better!
To conclude however Wicked Comics would like to spare a few seconds to thank all the following people for their participation in one way or another in the Malta Comic Con 2011!
