Over the next two days (June 6th and 7th) people will be able tune into the Wales Comic Con Twitch account to take watch in exclusive panels, 1-2-1 video calls and take part in giveaways.

Panels include Anthony Head, James Marsters and Nicholas Brendon from Buffy, Rachel Milner, Ruth Connell, Samantha Smith, Alaina Huffman and Emily Swallow from Supernatural; and Gareth David-Lloyd and Kai Owen from Torchwood

It’s the second time the team behind Wales Comic Con – which attracts thousands from across the world to its event each year – have held a virtual event for its fans.

The first Wales Comic Con: Live last month raised more than £3000 for NHS Charities Together.

Jaime Milner, Wales Comic Con organiser, said: “We wanted to bring some positivity back into a world that is filled with so much darkness right now and if that means we can connect so many people together from our homes to theirs then I’m thrilled we are able to achieve it.

“The last event hosted over 33,000 viewers and we hope to hit the 100,000 this weekend.”

You can subscribe to the Twitch channel for £4.99 or view the Wales Comic Con: Live for free with Amazon Prime!
