Pittencrieff Park will host Dunfermline’s Comic Con on Saturday, March 3.

The event will bring international names from the comic world to our doorstep in the Kingdom.

The line-up includes over 30 comic book artists and writers coming from the USA, Russia, Finland, Ireland and the UK.

The Comic Con is organised by two of the leading women in the Scottish comic scene, mother and daughter, Louise and Sinead Grainger from Dunfermline.

International stars appearing at this year’s event include Cecil Castellucci, based in Los Angeles – the creator of Shade the Changing Girl for DC Young Animals.

Other highlights will include Marc Ellerby, artist who illustrates worldwide smash hit Rick and Morty, Dr Who and Regular Show plus Dave McKean, who co-created Batman Arkham with Grant Morrison, a Scots writer, and designed the covers for the Sandman series of comics. He is a long time collaborator of Neil Gaiman.

There will be 150 stalls this year compared to 100 in 2017, making this one of the largest comic conventions in Britain. There will be a number of special panel discussions with comic creators and child friendly creative activities scheduled throughout the day.

With many of those attending also planning to dress as their favourite comic and movie characters, the event promises to be spectacular
