The Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention combines the best of pop culture from East and West to Asia, uniting the worlds of comics, anime, toys, collectibles and games.

Fans and all will get to meet big names – and those with the right talent may even possibly land an opportunity in the industry – with people like C.B. Cebulski, Marvel Comics' international talent scout who is always on the hunt for the best and brightest new artists the world has to offer, and Jennifer Phillips, award-winning action/fight choreographer, entertainer and playwright. Hear from Cebulski as he gives an inside look into the world of Marvel and what he looks for in the next Marvel artist.

Fans will also get to meet comic book illustrator Leinil Yu whose work includes Wolverine, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and the New Avengers, and British artist David Lloyd, famed for creating the internationally successful V for Vendetta graphic novel with critically-acclaimed writer Alan Moore. 

They boost an already impressive line-up from Asia, US and Europe, with comic illustrators Alex Maleev, Esad Ribic, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Harvey Tolibao, Salvador Larroca, Sonny Liew, Tan Eng Huat as well as comic writers Gail Simone and Ivan Brandon, all of whom have done work for Marvel and DC Comics.  Also on the guest list are cartoonists Phil Ortiz and Phil Yeh, and popular toy designers Simone Legno (Tokidoki), Mori Chack (Gloomy Bear), Koto Nishiyama and Shinichiro Kitai (DEVILROBOTS), Tim Tsui (Da TeamBronx) and Jason Siu (Monkey Playground).

And those who love dressing up will get to live out their fantasy characters in a cosplay competition.

Look out for more news as I get them CHEERS and hope to see you there!
