Get ready comic fans because Ireland’s Comic Con convention is set to take place in Dublin this August.

The Dublin Comic Con is aimed at fans of comic books, computer games, film and TV and offers them a chance to meet some of their favourite stars, take workshops and see movie and TV props up close.

The guest list this year includes actors Ian Whyte, best known for his portrayal as the Predator in Alien V's Predator, Ron Donachie who plays Rodrik Cassel in TV show Game Of Thrones and comic book artist Charlie Adlard best known for his work on The Walking Dead.

Visitors to the convention will also get the chance to see special effects character creator, Shannon Shea, who has worked on classics such as Predator, Terminator, Jurassic Park and M.I.B 3.

Shannon will also be joined by Brian Murirl, the sculptor of Darth Vader’s iconic helmet.

For those who want to get a bit more hands on, there will be workshops in sculpting, moulding, prosthetics, make-up effects, low-budget film and comic creation, game development, voice acting and self-publishing.

Dublin Comic-Con will take place in The National Show Centre in Swords, Dublin from August 10 to 11 from 10am to 7pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.

Tickets are priced at €12.50 for an adult and €7.50 for a child and a full programme of events and timetable will be available from the Comic Con website from early August.
