We've already revealed full details of exhibitors in our Lakeview Comics Marketplace, which includes a bigger, wider range of comic creators, publishers and other creatives than at any previous Festival.

“We’re thrilled to welcome both new and returning guests to our Festival,” said Festival Director Julie Tait. “Some of our guests have often returned to our event, but we’re delighted to welcome new faces, too, such as Eisner Award-winning creator Gerhard and Gigi Cavenago.

“Both are internationally acclaimed and more than deserve to be in the spotlight among our international line-up of comic creator all-stars.”

The Festival weekend will open with an as-yet-under-wraps comics and comedy night, mixing comic creators with comedians, which proved a hugely popular combination last year.
