A Marvel & DC Comic-Con sequel will be held in Thanet this spring with Stranger Things and House of The Dragon stars among those meeting and greeting fans.
Organisers of last year’s Marvel & DC Comic-Con, which attracted almost 10,000 fans to Birchington, say sci-fi fans are in for a treat when the event returns to Quex Park on May 21.
This year’s event has been expanded to include other sci-fi and fantasy genres with Stranger Things, House of the Dragon, Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr Who and lots more. Organiser Gerald McCarthy said: “We had great fun last year with Marvel & DC but we thought for 2023 we’d broaden the appeal even further which is why we’re adding Stranger Things elements – a life-size demogorgan and Vecnor props are among things that fans can pose with, and Stranger Things star Tom Wlashicha, who played Enzo in series 4 of the hit series, will be meeting and greeting fans.
“Those that enjoyed the ‘House of the Dragon’ hit series can meet stars Sam Collett and Elliot Grihault, the latter’s character meeting his grisly death-by-dragon in the season finale.
“We’ll have droids, wookies, and storm troopers from Star Wars interacting with fans, along with some impressive props from many sci-fi franchises and countless cosplayers.
“For the little ones we have Cinderella and a host of fairytale characters attending, along with Cinderella’s beautiful carriage that children can pose in – which we’re sure will go down a treat! We’re talking to celebrity agents currently too – so look out for further guest announcements.”
Fans can also expect live music, a food court, activities, giant inflatables, a Q&A session with guests, performances from Titan The Robot, comic book artists, merchandise and much more.
