2017 is the inaugural Isle of Wight Comic Con! AT  Northwood House & Park, Cowes, Isle of Wight, PO31 8AZ

What is the Isle of Wight Comic Con?

A modern day comic con is a celebration of pop culture. Traditionally focused on comic books, some have grown to include elements of films, TV, gaming and general entertainment. In the past 20 years and more so in recent years, a larger aspect of these events has been focused on cosplay with a large percentage of ticket-holders costuming as a character from the ‘world’ of their liking.

2017 is the FIRST Isle of Wight Comic Con and although the organisers originally intended the event to be more of an exclusive affair, the interest and support has been outstanding. Thus, we’ve received additional funding to bring in bigger named guests and to ensure the success of the convention for many years to come.

That a first event has received this much interest and support is testament to the wonderful activeness of Islanders and island businesses – we love a good event and we tend to overly support those events to make them bigger as years progress.

What can we do if this first event is a big success? We can bring in bigger guests, increase capacity at the venue and generally give you more of what you want!

Time will only tell if the Isle of Wight Comic Con gets bigger as years go on. We’re not thinking of future events just yet, we want to ensure that the inaugural Island Con is a good as we can make it. The volunteer organisation that has made this happen will do everything they can to give the Isle of Wight the Comic Con it deserves!
