International artists will descend on Bedford this weekend for the town’s first comic convention.
The hotly anticipated convention is also set to attract thousands of fans, with more than 30 guests from Marvel, DC, Image and 2000AD for them to meet.
The event will also include stalls from dealers from across the UK with a wide range of comic book merchandise. N.I.C.E 2013 is sponsored by Bedford’s own comic shop Close Encounters in Midland Road.
Convention curator Jeff Chahal, said: “This is Bedford’s first ever comic convention. We’ve arranged for some of the industry’s top artists and writers to be here for two days. They’ll be signing and sketching all weekend. This is your chance to grab some original comic art from the people that not only produce the comics but also do the concept designs for many popular movies.” Find out more at www.nicecon.co.uk
