SGCC City Square Mall Pre-Event

Singapore Comic Con Returns This Weekend! (Kinda)

While the main event will be held on Dec 10th and 11th, this weekend sees a special pre-event at City Square Mall.

Singapore Comic Con (SGCC) returns this year after a two-year break from physical events–and it’s back with quite the bang.

In addition to an incredibly impressive line-up of comic book talents, regional and beyond, SGCC will be marking their return with a special pre-event this week. Held on 8th and 9th of October at City Square Mall, this pre-event offers an early peek at some of the exhibitors and performers who will also be at SGCC itself in December, but with a chance for visitors to get their hands (and eyes) on early content.

In addition to the Star Wars cosplayers from Fightsaber Singapore and the Mandalorian Mercs of the Kranak Clan will be regional cosplayers Diane and Lia Bear, as well as the debut of P4L, SGCC’s official mascot–demarking a new era for Singapore Comic Con.

Also present over the weekend will be 14 content creators, who will be carrying original merchandise and art–some of which exclusive to this preview event. Included in this line-up is Singaporean comic book publisher CS Comics, who will be offering an early black and white edition of Legionaries #1, a brand new Roman mythology-inspired comic book currently on Kickstarter.

Featuring a special variant cover by Singaporean artist Elvin Ching, this inks-only edition of Legionaries will debut at the SGCC pre-event. Furthermore, an on-the-spot headshot sketch of you as a Legionary can be obtained, making your copy of this black and white comic a truly special edition. The coloured versions of this cover will be available as a set at SGCC itself in December, depicting both Esplanade and Marina Bay Sands, where SGCC will be held.

So head down to City Square Mall this weekend (8th and 9th October) from 10AM to 8PM, and whet your appetite for Singapore Comic Con!
