FTN Shakes The D.I.C.E. and is VERY Excited!

The Dublin International Comic Expo 2013 (D.I.C.E.) will be taking place on September 28th and 29th at Pembroke Square, Dundrum, and it’s shaping up to be an amazing event.

With over 30 guests already confirmed, all from the world of comics and graphic novels, Dublin International Comic Con looks to be the comic con event of the year so far.

With artist guests including Declan Shalvey (Venom, Deadpool), Esad Ribic (Thor), John McCrea (Hitman), Michael Carroll (Judge Dredd), Nick Roche (Transformers) and guest of honour Greg Capullo (Batman), these names will roll off the tongue of any comic fan. Not to mention that friends of FTN Will Sliney and PJ Holden will also be making appearances.

Any fan of comics or graphic novels will tell you that the artwork is only half of the draw (pun intended), it’s the writing and in particular, the authors that create those hard to put down stories. This year the guest writers include Darrin O’Toole (Tales from the Void), Jamie McKelvie (Young Avengers), Kieron Gillen (Iron Man), Paul Cornell (Superman), Si Spurrier (2000AD), with guest of honour Scott Snyder (Batman, Superman Unchained).

With guest signings, talks and panels, not to mention the usual plethora of vendors and perhaps even a few cosplayers popping along (lets be honest, it wouldn’t be a con without fans turning up in cosplay), DICE is really the place to be.

With a Weekend Pass for this event at just €25, Day Pass at just €15 and best of all, Under 12s go Free! There really is no excuse not to pop down to this Mecca of comic gatherings, and who knows, you might even see your favourite comic character making an appearance or two.
