a team brusselsComic Con Brussels returns to the buildings of Tour&Taxis during the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 February 2017. Thousands of fans, Cosplayers and other visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the world of science fiction, fantasy and contemporary pop culture of the immensely popular comic books.

Comic Con Brussels wants to offer fans a total experience, which naturally also means inviting several international stars. Autograph hunters should prick up their ears because the list is quite long. With the actor Dirk Benedict, fans are in for a double treat. Many of us known him as Face in the popular series The A-Team but he also played Lt. Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica. We are also pleased to welcome the one and only Sam Jones, better known to audiences as Flash Gordon (with the eponymous soundtrack by Queen), another Eighties era gem who also starred in the blockbuster movie Ted by Seth MacFarlane. And how about a one-off, exclusive European appearance by Kevin Eastman, the original designer and inventor of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? And it wouldn't be a real fantasy convention without Star Wars of course. Which is why Comic Con Brussels is proud to present an impressive list to mark the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Paul Blake, or the bounty hunter Greedo in the legendary “Who shot first” scene with Han Solo, Anna Brewster who played the spy Bazine Netal in The Force Awakens, Femi Taylor or Oola, Garrick Hagon better known as Biggs, Luke Skywalker ‘s best friend in Star Wars : A New Hope and Michael Carter whom audiences will remember as Bib Fortuna will all be travelling to Brussels. Finally these two big names complete the already impressive line-up: Julian Glover (Grand Maester Pycelle in Game Of Thrones) and James Duva (Frank The Bunny in the cult classic Donnie Darko).

But there is more to Comic Con Brussels than meeting international guests. There are hundreds of booths where you can browse some extraordinary merchandise and find fun gadgets, unique games, comics or T-shirts of that one series you have been a fan of for years. You can also learn a lot at Comic Con Brussels. Check out the many workshops where visitors can learn how to wield a Lightsaber, race real drones or enrol in a real Jedi Academy (especially for our youngest visitors, who enjoy free admission)! Do you think you know all there is to know about creating amazing costumes? Then why not enter the Cosplay contest, which will be judged this year by the internationally renowned Cosplayer Nicole Marie Jean(USA) for a chance to win a 1,000-euro cash prize?

This year’s hosts of Comic Con Brussels are the comedian and singer Alex Agnew and the British comedian Matthew Highton. A sure bet that this event will be a barrel of laughs.

Whether you’re interested in fab costumes, international stars or plenty of unique merchandise, Comic Con Brussels is an entertaining and amazing event for people of all ages in the magnificent buildings of Tour & Taxis in Brussels.
