Who is it going to be?
Comicons usally happen at the other side of the world, the most popular one being in San Diego. It seems farfetched to think that we could go there but our dream is closer than we think. AsiaPop Comicon Manila is coming back on August 25, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center.
AsiaPop Comicon Manila is the biggest annual comic and pop culture convention in the Philippines and in the region. The event brings the ultimate fan experience with a powerhouse line-up of celebrity and entertainment guests, artists, cosplayers, and digital stars.
Their theme revolves around the various genres of geek and pop culture such as movies, television, comics, games, toys, music, cosplay, and anime. They also promises exclusive contests and merchandise, props and exhibitions, activities, contest, performances, and panel sessions.
In 2015, Paul Bettany (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Colton Haynes (Arrow), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) were the celebrities at the event. Last year it was Nicholas Hault (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), and Joe Dempsie (Game of Thrones). This year who is it going to be?
As of now, the organizers only revealed where and when the event will be. It will be on August 25 to 27, 2017 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia. The organizers are pretty tight-lipped on who the celebrity guests will be, but whoever it will be the fans will surely get excited! Aside from that, there’s also still no news on how much the tickets will cost.
Let’s look back at last year’s AsiaPop Comicon:
While the past Asia Pop Comicon Manila was a hit, they also pinky promise that this year’s will be just as amazing!
