CamCon 2012 lines up its guests

CamCon 12th May 2012

A new British comic convention will take place in May and has an impressive line-up of guests that includes longtime indie creator Glenn Dakin, 2000AD artist Leigh Gallagher and many others.

The brainchild of Ziggy Newman, CamCon - Cambridge's new comic/cult convention - will take place at the The Junction J2 on 12th May 2012. Guests announced so far include manga creator Sonia Leong, Glenn Dakin, Leigh Gallagher, Emma Vicelli and Murky Depths editor Terry Martin.

"Basically this is a project I have set up and funded myself using money I raised in my gap year," Ziggy tells us. "It is the first of its kind in East Anglia and I have set it up because of my strong interest in pop/geek culture and want to share it with others."

This brand new convention dedicated to comics, anime fandom, gaming, alternative fashion and everything else wickedly cool will include guest talks from manga and other comic creators, a Cosplay Masquerade, Manga Drawing Workshops, Live bands, Gaming Tournaments, an Alternative Fashion Show and more.
