To adventurous geeks out there who fancy jumping on the Eurostar, boat or plane and checking out something abroad Comic Con’ Paris will be waiting to greet you with open arms and a nice little line up of talent. The show, which is entering it’s fourth year, will take place July 5-8 at Paris Nord Villepinte.

Every day my eyes are opened more and more to the wealth of geeks events that go on in the big wide world. Before we started doing Geek Syndicate I truly believed that geekdom was a very,very niche things with not much coverage and even fewer events to attend but the landscape has certainly changed a lot over the last five years.

This year, Ivan Reis – the creator of Aquaman – is our guest of honor for Comics and he designed the poster for the festival as well. On Artist Alley, we are also welcoming artists Tony Daniel and Jorge Molina (of Batman Detective Comic and X-Men fame respectively), Siegfried writer Alex Alice, and also Rafael Albuquerque, Mahmud Asrar, Yanick Paquette, Ian Churchill and Marco Santucci. Previously unpublished plates from the new volumes of comic books Le Scorpion and Murena is showcased in an exclusive exhibit. Dark Fantasy is also being distinguished with exhibits for Ballad of The Lost Moors,Asgard and Thorgal.

In addition, a Doctor Whoconference is being held with Murray Gold, the composer of all the soundtrack of the show, executive producer Caroline Skinner, screenwriter Chris Chibnall and director Toby Haynes.
