STGCC

The 3rd Singapore Toys Games and Comic Con (STGCC) is coming this weekend, organised for the first time by Reed Exhibitions, who I think are also behind the New York Comic Con. There’ll be lots of Singaporean and Malaysian Comics creators there at various booths, some of us have pitched in together to do up a guide to which ones 🙂 You can see/download a PDF of it here. The Liquid City Booth is at G26.

We’ll be holding a Lucky Draw at STGCC, with Original Art, prints and other prizes to be won; just collect the autographs of the comics creators listed in the brochure; Draws will be conducted at 8PM on
Friday and Saturday , and 7pm on Sunday at the Liquid City  Booth (G26). So do go come to the event, and buy books from everyone from Dave Chua and Koh Hong Teng, Drewscape, Ken Foo, Troy Chin, Stickgal, JC Wong, Shawn Yap and many more!
