Rolls off the tongue better than Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention

The Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention is back for its 12th run this year, this time, with a laudable renaming of the event to Singapore Comic Con, so we can all now say we’re heading to comic con without being in San Diego.

Happening Dec 7-8 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, expect the many worlds of video games, anime, cosplay, movies, television, toys, and of course, comics, to converge into one epic event that’s the stuff of nerd dreams.

Artist appearances this year include Jock (real name Mark Simpson), best known for his graphic novel works such as 2000 AD, Wolverine and Batman: The Black Mirror. He is also known to have worked on promo imagery for films like Iron Man 3, Star Wars: Episode VII and The Dark Knight trilogy.

Also get to meet and greet Greg Capullo, the renowned artist responsible for Quasar, X-Force, Angela, Spawn and Batman. World of Warcraft fans will also find some of his works familiar. Adding to the line-up is pop surrealist Tara McPherson, known for creating otherworldly art pieces that delve into the complexities of the human psyche.

All the things we know and love from previous editions will return too. Catch pro gamers in action and try out console and VR games at the Good Game Experience area; walk down Artist Alley and peruse works by amateur artists; find collectibles and merch you won’t see anywhere else; get your hands dirty at tabletop gaming; and lots more.

So come dressed in your favourite outfit and join in the fun. Our guesses for the most common costumes this year? Other than the obvious Marvel and DC ones, we reckon Elsa princesses will make a comeback given Frozen 2’s November release, plus a few Chucky appearances thanks to the Child’s Play reboot and Halloween costumes being reused. Oh, and Jedis of course, plenty of Jedis.


Singapore Comic Con 2019 takes place Dec 7-8 at the Sands Expo & Convention Centre. Tickets from $21 available here.
