Tripwire Magazine is delighted to announce a new Bristol Comic Con for Autumn 2022.
Bringing together tech, comics and movies, Tripwire Presents Bristol Comic Con will be a family- driven weekend with activities and events designed to entertain everyone. The show’s remit is to provide a total fan and collector experience with panels, exhibitions, dealers, cosplayers, and a new addition to the mix: exclusive workshops featuring top international comic names with decades of expertise. The event will be a hub for social gatherings where fans and industry leaders can mingle, with the intention that this convention should become a regular fixture in the comics events calendar.
Tripwire originally launched as a magazine by Joel Meadows back in 1992, after publishing over fifty issues, Tripwire moved online in 2013. Since then, it has continued to grow in prominence, becoming the go-to resource for insight into British and international genre media. This Comic Con is timed to celebrate Tripwire’s 30th anniversary.
Running across the weekend of September 3-4, 2022 and situated in the central location of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel near Temple Meads, this Comic Con will be a great opportunity for local businesses to spotlight their work and attract new audiences.
