Wicked Comics Upcoming Events:
Towards the end of 2021, Wicked Comics, the voluntary organisation behind the Malta Comic Convention remerged by holding the Malta Comic Art Gallery, which was the first creative event organised since the break of the pandemic. This event gave a platform to local artists to showcase their work and attendants a small flavour of one of the major components of the Malta Comic Con.

- Wicked Comics Workshops and Masterclasses – Saturday 19th February 2022;

We’ve all been missing the Malta Comic Con, so in its absence we’re organising these three mini events to re-create the comic con vibe, re-connect the local comics community and provide a safe space for all to engage in their favourite comic con related activities.
Kicking off this roster of mini activities is the Wicked Comics Workshops and Masterclasses which consists of a whole day of workshops and masterclasses of approximately 1.30hrs each and focusing on various themes such as comics, cosplay and gaming. Delivered by experts in their respective fields these exciting classes will be educational and entertaining in equal measure. You will surely find one that appeals to you!
This will be followed by the Wicked Comics Cosplay Competition, where cosplayers will have the opportunity to showcase their costumes and have photos and footage taken by professional photographers and videographers. Furthermore, in this friendly competition they will have the opportunity to win fantastic prizes through two main competitions, where one will be decided by judges and the other by fans from the comfort of their homes. Whether you’re a cosplayer or a fan of cosplay you will surely enjoy participating in this fun event!
Capping this first flurry of activities in style is the Wicked Comics Gaming Weekend, where we invite all gamers to come have fun and celebrate this popular component of the Malta Comic Con. During this event a variety of gaming activities such as console gaming, table-top gaming and role-playing games will take place which include competitions, try-outs and tournaments. Whether you’re a fan of retro or modern gaming, casual or competitive gaming, this exciting event is for you!
Stay tuned for more details on each of these activities which will be released shortly on our website. We look forward to see you all at these events!
