ABOUT leam comic con
Set up by husband and wife team Dan and Lisa-Marie Mallier, Leam Comic Con began its journey in February 2014, following a successful crowd-funding campaign.
The mission was to deliver a small, but perfectly formed convention focused on comic-books, giving attendees and the people of Leamington Spa the opportunity to engage with national and local comic-book writers, illustrators and traders of pop-culture memorabilia. As well as attracting big-name guests, the convention works hard to provide a platform for small press publishers to showcase their work.
In 2015 Leam Comic Con was awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award by Leamington Business Awards, acknowledging the event and its organisers put on something truly unique and special for the Town, which attracted visitors from all over the UK.
Money from each event is used to put together a modest budget for the next show. The organisers are keen to encourage new generations of comic-book readers, therefore tickets for kids under 13 remain free, and there is always a number of free activities and workshops for kids to attend on the day also.
Each year the independently-run convention has upped its game and delivered a unique and fun-filled day for comic-book fans and families.
