Advance tickets are now on sale for The Birmingham Comics Festival taking place on Saturday 18th April 2015 at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium and featuring over 100 exhibitors, panel shows, competitions, cosplaying events and surprise activities yet to be announced, plus a host of special guests from around the world who have written and illustrated such iconic characters as Batman, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Judge Dredd, Dan Dare and even The Three Bears, and whose work has appeared in such bestselling comics as 2000AD, The Eagle, Metal Hurlant, Sonic The Comic, Commando, and The Beano.

Featuring rare and exclusive UK attendances of many stellar talents, not least the living legend whose art has entertained generations of British comic readers, Mr Ian Kennedy, The Birmingham Comics Festival is something no serious comic book fan can afford to miss out on attending, and fortunately this inaugural event is not cost prohibitive.

What’s more under-fives accompanied by their parents will be given free entry making it a perfect day out for all the family.

It should also be noted that there will be no hidden charges and the purchase of tickets will ensure free car parking on the day (subject to availability) and free entry to all convention events (unless recommended as being for 18 and over).

The centrepiece one day convention will be the culmination of a number of intimate smaller events being planned, some of which will be completely free, regardless of ticket purchases, while others – including a programme of comic-related films being screened exclusively at the Mac Birmingham – will be offered at a discounted rate to ticket holders.
