If you have been living under a rock the past year, here is what you missed. The one and only western pop culture convention in Singapore formerly known as Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) is now re-branded as Singapore Comic Con (SGCC) and has shifted its usual September date to 7-8 December. It will also move its venue from the basement of Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre back to level 1 (Halls A, B and C).
With a stellar line-up including DC Comics illustrators and toy designers, the December convention will not disappoint! Meet & greet with three-time New York Times best-selling artist Jock, famed for his artwork in graphic novel titles such as 2000 AD, Wolverine and award-winning Batman: The Black Mirror series.
Alongside Jock will be fellow Batman comic artist and penciller, Greg Capullo, a legend in the world for comics who is also known for his works Spawn and X-Force.
The two-day extravaganza will also see pop surrealist Tara McPherson who has been known for creating art pieces that explore the realms of otherworldly characters which are born from complexities of the human psyche.
