After a 2 year hiatus, Bristol Comic Expo returns to the Double Tree by Hilton on Saturday 6th August 2016, for a special showcase event with big name comic guests, a small press spotlight, expo exclusives from creators and much more! Now being run by the team behind the excellent Cardiff Independent Comics Expo we have high hopes for this year’s event and so take a look at what will be happening at this year’s jam packed event!
After a rather underwhelming event at the Future Inns in 2013, the Bristol Comics Expo 2016 is back and will be held on Saturday August 6th, returning to the home of the original Bristol Expo – the former Ramada or the Double Tree by Hilton as it is now!
