Leading Comic Artists and Writers Set To Touch Down in Derry for ComicCity Festival


Inaugural comic book festival celebrates all things creative

ComicCity is a two-day festival, which is being run in partnership with CultureTech, the Millennium Forum and the Nerve Centre, and will celebrate comics, illustration and the creative arts.

The festival is free to enter and will be held in the Millennium Forum venue in Derry on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September, and will showcase some of the world's best creative talent, including some of the comic industry's top writers and artists.

Confirmed guests include Eisner Award-winning colourist Jordie Bellaire, Deadpool artist John McCrea, writer and artist Dan McDaid and many more. These special guests, exhibitors and dealers will be in attendance throughout the weekend and there will also be a full programme of talks, workshops and activities.

In addition, comic fans will also have the opportunity to attend Invasion Derry, which will be running alongside ComicCity.

Invasion Derry is being hosted by The Emerald Garrison, Ireland's premier costuming club, who will be bringing their hugely popular Star Wars show to the city for the first time, featuring interactive sets, props, replicas and over 40 costumed characters!
