A ‘super show’

The team behind Comic Con Aberdeen promised fans a “super show”.

The event will be moving from the exhibition halls into the P&J Live Arena, making more room for attractions, prop builds and exciting guests.

Comic Con has become a triumph in the city, with thousands of guests gathering to show off their costumes and speak to celebrities from across the world.

Event organisers hope to “attract an even wider range of famous faces, movie props and unique merchandise” next year.

Exhibition sales manager Claire-Lena Miller-Davis hailed the 2022 and 2023 events as “huge hits”.

“We are thrilled to see Comic Con Scotland (NE) return to P&J Live, bigger and better, in 2024,” she said.

“The show was a huge hit in 2022, and even more successful this time round with Saturday’s show selling-out.

“With more space, the organisers hope to attract an even wider range of famous faces, movie props and unique merchandise next year, and with the support of the region’s comic con fanbase, we’re sure to see this exhibition grow over the years to come.”

Comic Con Aberdeen takes place on March 23 and 24. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be purchased here.
