Pic Post: Dunfermline Comic Con 2017

Back for it’s second outing, Dunfermline Comic Con saw over 4,500 people at the Glen Pavilion in Pittencrieff Park on Saturday March 11.

It was a great day out for families and fans, plenty of whom dressed up in cosplay.

Lots of comic artists and writers turned up including Saltire Press, Mark Collins, Alan Grant, Neil Slorance, Noelle Stevenson and Molly Ostertag. Also making an appearance was the Tenth Doctor lookalike and a menacing Dalek, along with a Star Wars Land Speeder.

The yearly convention is organised by the comic book store, The Little Shop of Horror which is based in Dunfermline.

More than double the vendors turned up at this years con and around 30 comic book artists came to see their fans.

Alby Grainger, of the Little Shop of Heroes, said:

“Dunfermline Comic Con 2017 was a huge success. The artists, writers, vendors and attendees loved it. Our plan is to host an indie friendly, family orientated, community based con. The feedback we have received has touched on all of those points. Phew!

“The plans for next year are for more great UK and international comic book guests, a couple of attractions, (At least one a Scottish first) and even more space.”

Panel discussions were also held throughout the day with comic artists, writers and Dundee Universities own Professor of comics, Chris Murray.
