Return of Fan Favourites at STGCC 2011

STGCC, which will take place on 20 & 21 August at the Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Centre, is a popular culture convention showcasing the latest and greatest from the fantastical worlds of toys, games and comics. Co-produced by Reed Exhibitions Singapore and ReedPOP in the USA – the creators of the annual New York Comic Convention (NYCC) – STGCC shines a spotlight on what is hot and new from around the planet.

The fourth edition of STGCC will include familiar faces and new names from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and the Eastern pop culture space that fans will be eager to meet, and STGCC is proud to reveal that C.B. Cebulski and Simone Legno will be returning to Singapore.

Cebulski (Marvel Entertainment’s Senior Vice President of Creator and Content Development) will be back this year to speak more on Marvel's heroes and its upcoming books – and spending more time to meet with local artists and review the portfolios of aspiring creators. Cebulski scouts for talent on an international level, travelling the world on the hunt for the best and brightest new artists.

Italian toy designer Simone Legno, the creator of the very popular Tokidoki brand, will also be back again at STGCC. The charismatic designer has been a staple highlight at STGCC since its first edition, launching exclusive collectibles at the event every year.

STGCC fans can also look forward to a special feature at this year's convention. A series of superhero movie posters will go on display at the event, showcasing the birth and growth of the superhero film genre through original movie posters from 1970s classics to today’s modern movie epics.

Pop Corn Pop, a locally-based company specializing in original movie memorabilia, will be presenting the gallery at STGCC, starting from a rare, original 1978 Superman print (worth $750 today) to the latest Captain America banners. Between them, attendees can get a glimpse of other superhero blockbusters including 1989’s Batman and 2002’s Spider-Man.
