By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Thursday July 6 2017

The Highlands Comic Con, Fort Con, is back on the 30th September with a venue loaded with traders and guests from all over Scotland and beyond.

New media guests announced include exclusive first time Scottish convention appearances from original Raven James Mackenzie and English Star Wars actor Brian Wheeler.

Other media guests currently confirmed include Outlander and Angel's Share star Scott Kyle and Rony Bridges from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Comic book guests include 2000AD and Judge Dredd legend Colin MacNeil.

This is alongside both original Highland comic con organisers (Hi-Ex) Richmond Clements and Vicky Stonebridge.

More comic book names recently announced include Italian creator Silvia Carrus and Manchester based Ken Mcfarlane.

There was also the announcement that world famous artist Aly Fell would be in attendance at Fort William's Nevis Centre venue for the show.

With Aly’s recent turn to writing and creating the art for his own comic book releases from Dark Horse comics this is a good time for Scottish comic book fans to make the most of an event which has taken the Highland's by storm.

The event has a timetable of workshops and discussions and also has an entire roster of cosplay guests that will be available all day for photo opportunities and Q&As.

There's even an entire arcade with machines set free-to-play for gaming fans to make the most of.

Tickets are now available direct from the Nevis Centre venue or online from Ticketweb.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page and website for more announcements coming up before the event!

There is a volunteer recruitment day at the venue on 30th July, two months before the event day, if you're interested then pop along to the Nevis Centre between 12pm-3pm to get your name down and ask any questions you may have to the team.
