The popular Wales Comic Con will be making its return to Glyndwr University tomorrow.

Now in it’s fifth year, the event has rapidly increased in size and popularity over the past few years. Offering fans and lovers of films, graphic novels and cult television the chance to meet their heroes, the day is the perfect day out for everyone with a keen interest in Sci-Fi.

Last year was Comic Con’s biggest year to date, with fans queuing as far back at the university’s Catrin Finch Centre. This year’s event  promises to be bigger and better that with its strongest show yet.

This year’s line up easily surpasses the last few, with stars from Lord of the Rings, Primeval and Game of Thrones all topping the bill. Guests include Warwick Davies, Hannah Spearritt, John Challis and Billy Boyd.

Fans of the cult sci-fi series Red Dwarf can rejoice this year, as the full cast will all be in attendance the the event. Chris Barrie and Danny-John Jules have been regulars at the comic con for the past few years; however this year they will also be joined by Robert Llewellyn, Norman Lovett, Hattie Hayridge and Craig Charles.

There are also a series of television props available to have your photo taken with. On offer will be cars from Supernatural and Knight Rider. Doctor Who’s Tardis will also be making a special appearance, providing all Who fans with the chance to have a look at the 11th Doctor’s (Matt Smith) Tardis.

Alongside television and film stars, there will also be a number of wrestling legends in attendance, and also the chance to meet well known graphic writers and artists.

Throughout the day there will be the chance to meet your favourite stars and get autographs. Prices of autographs vary between guests, but will be somewhere in the region of £10 – £20 per signed photo. There will also be Question and Answer sessions, ‘ComicZone’,  a number of stalls and the opportunity to have your photo taken with some of the guests.

Early Bird tickets have all sold out and for those lucky enough to have the tickets will be able to enter the venue at 10am.

General sale tickets can be purchased on the day itself, and cost £6 for general, or just £3 for those under the age 0f 14. Doors open at 11am, however due to the incredible popularity of last years event, it’s advised people arrive early to ensure they can get into the event and avoid the large queues. The event will finish at 5pm.
