Dates And First Details For Kapow! Comic Con 2012 Revealed!

Mark Millar has released the first details for London's Kapow! Comic Con 2012, and you can find everything from the location and dates of the event to comments from the Kick-Ass writer himself here...

Comic Book Resources exclusively reveal that Kapow! Comic Con will return next year in London's Business Design Center in Islington on May 19th and May 20th, 2012. As you may already know, the event is organised by Mark Millar's partners Company Director Lucy Unwin and organizer Sarah Unwin. While there's much more to be found over at the site, here are a few excerpts from the prolific comic book writer on how he feels about bringing Kapow! back for a second year.

"The Kapow! Convention in London was genuinely the best con I've ever been to. Everybody from John Romita Jr to Bryan Hitch to Jonathan Ross said they had an amazing time, sending Lucy and Sarah really lovely notes for all their hard work. The location was brilliant, as it should have been as it cost us a fortune to hire. But it was worth it as it was so central and the atmosphere was really amazing. It was huge and the best line-up of A-list comic names I've ever seen in the UK. But also weirdly intimate as you could chat to Leinil Yu or Frank Quitely when you were buying a coffee in the cafe."

"The movie side of it was just insane too with guys like Duncan Jones and Neil Marshall and Danny Mcbride and so on all being with the two leads from Thor, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston. Plus all the Marvel guys and brilliant DC creators and the biggest UK telly people... and best of all nobody charging for autographs. We did an outright ban on people charging for signatures and the crowds seemed to love it. This is going to be amazing. We laid the groundwork in year one, but the plans we have for year two are just spectacular. More details as we get closer to the event itself, but basically you need to book this weekend off work immediately."
