Names have been announced for the next guests for LSCC and are as follows.
Seems the VIP tickets are selling fast. Sounds like those that have been debating whether or not to get one should make up their mind soon. Or ask for an early Xmas present. So what exactly does it get you…….
VIP Comic Creator Event
This entitles you to a weekend early entry ticket (entrance from 9.am.), a meet and greet with a selection of our Creators (To be held on the evening of Friday the 14th), as well as a VIP goodie bag containing variants, prints and assorted goodies (valued at a minimum of £60)
The next names have been announced for LSCC 2014, with the welcome return of Dan Slott, hopefully Silver Surfer will be out by then. John Layman comes over for all you Chew fans, hopefully that means that Rob might follow. So here are the names.
Yup you heard it right. Free trip including flights accommodation and tickets to Dragon Con courtesy of London Super Comic Convention.

Art Adams is a 1st timer along with Charlie, Frank Cho and Joyce Chin, we welcome the return of Mark B, Howard and the others.
LSCC website for 2014 will hopefully be operational by Friday. With possibly the 1st guests announcements sometime shortly after that. We have also heard that there will be VIP tickets available this year.
So what could this all mean?
The Date change….in the previous 2 years LSCC has been at the end of February. I know with these situations that you get 1st option on the next year, BUT LSCC have changed dates completely and moved it to March. Why you may ask? Well maybe one of their guests couldn’t make Feb, when I mean guests. I mean a Jim Lee, a Brian Bendis or Robert Kirkman sort of person. Someone that you could warrant changing the dates.
VIP tickets – who for? The last VIP tickets were for Stan Lee…. who for this time and what can they let me do?
They are not up against much from America that weekend. 2 Conventions that weekend one in Kansas and the other in Kentucky. So for inviting guests, I think they would prefer a trip to London. The following week in Mega Con in Florida, so no clash there.
Guess we wait and see what happens Friday.
One of the most anticipated dates on every discerning UK comic fans calendar was officially announced today. The organisers behind LSCC have moved the month to March, with the weekend of the 15th and 16th penciled in.
If the previous two years are to go by, expect some of the biggest names in the UK and international comics scene to attend along with hopefully another special guest or two.
