Cork Comic Expo 3

Cork Comic Expo returns!

We are delighted to bring you Comic Expo 3 which takes place all day on Saturday September 16th.

This event is organised in association with Cork legend Will Sliney and Big Bang Comics.

Cork Comic Expo 1 took place here at Mahon Point in 2015 followed by Cork Comic Expo 2 in 2018.

So after quite a break, we are again delighted to see the return of this exciting event this year!

The event will again host a wide range of comic artists including award winning illustrator Will Sliney and others.

Marvel Artist, Will Sliney is renowned for his work on Star Wars and Spider-Man, to name just a few, and is also creator of the TV shows “Storytellers” and “Draw with Will”.

Expect to encounter some of the best comic book talent in the world with artists from Spider-Man, Batman, Transformers, Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Moon Knight, Deadpool and more.

The event will feature talented Cork creators including Chris O’Halloran who works on Thor, Spider-Man and Hellboy; Kevin Keane who works on Spawn and illustrator, lettering artist and art director Fiona Boniwell as well as Eoin Coveney who has drawn for 2000 AD.

The Expo will take over two floors of the shopping centre and we hope to make it biggest FREE comic book event in the world.  Workshops are also planned but pre-booking will be essential.

The show coincides with the launch of Will Sliney’s Storytellers on RTÉ 2 which debuts September 25 and features art from children nationwide. Saturday’s event is free and runs from 9.30am to 5pm.
