Coming up on November 14th, 15th, and 16th, Argentina Comic-Con returns to Buenos Aires with rather a wide selection of comics and celebrity presences. Last year, the con had 35,000 attendees, which is impressive given it's a younger con, and this year show runners are hoping for 42,000 and may well get that.
Two TV celebrities who will be there include Finn Jones best known for his role as Ser Loras Tyrell, The Knight of Flowers, in the HBO series Game of Thrones, and Olga Fonda, of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Real Steel and The Vampire Diaries.
International comics creators on site will include Chris Claremont, Kevin Eastman, Giuseppe Camunculi (Marvel), and many important local artist who are currently working abroad like Eduardo Risso, Ariel Olivetti, Max Fiumara, Sebastian Fiumara, Omar Francia, Marcelo Frusin, and more. Also note that the stellar Liniers will be there, popular internationally and gaining more of a foothold in the USA through Toon Books.
The con will also feature Cosplay Contests, panels with the cast of local TV shows, and pop culture themed presentations. Argentina Comic-Con has even attracted the presence of the major Hollywood studios like Warner Bros. Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, ABC Affiliates (Canal Sony), SYFY, and more.
