The biggest traitor in comic books is coming to Singapore. No, really. Following the initial announcement of guests for STGCC 2016, the organisers have confirmed that noted writers Nick Spencer (Captain America) and Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine) will be gracing our sunny shores!
If you have not been up to speed with the latest twist in Marvel comics, Nick Spencer is in the lead for being the Most Hated Writer In Comics, after having dropped the bombshell that revealed that the beloved Captain America was a Hydra agent all along!
We kid. The New York Times best-selling and Eisner award-nominated writer is without a doubt one of the rising stars of the comic book world. With credits with Image, Marvel and DC comics to his name, more than enough geeks are stoked that the man himself is coming to STGCC 2016!
Tom Taylor is the creative mind behind All-New Wolverine, following the exploits of X-23 in a world without Logan. (Yes, the female clone of Wolverine is now the new Wolverine.) A #1 New York Times best-selling comic book author, Taylor is also responsible for giving us gems like Superior Iron Man, the delightful Injustice: Gods Among Us, and a host of Star Wars titles that rank among our favourites. We look forward to meeting the genius that is Tom Taylor in September as well!
The organisers have not forgotten our cosplay loving brethren either! STGCC 2016 will also feature some of the most renowned cosplayers from all over the world. Joining the show this year will be Pugoffka, the Ukrainian cosplayer that has wowed fans with both her cosplays and photography skills. She is also slated to be part of the judging panel at this year’s Championships of Cosplay!
Not only that, attendees will have the cosplaying skills of Haoge to look forward to! The male cosplayer from China has captured the imagination of fans worldwide, with his stunning portrayals of female characters in their glory. The list is still not complete, but attendees are expected to be graced by King, Yao, Alma, Momo (Taiwan), and Hisui (Hong Kong), so definitely drop by if you love cosplay!
