Meet the man behind the Iron Man suit! Movies.ie brings you an early preview of what’s to come at this year’s Dublin City Comic Con.
Fancy meeting the man behind the ‘Iron man’ suit, or chatting Time Lords with one of the Doctor Who scribes? Well, here’s your chance with some of the Sci-fi/Fantasy’s biggest names coming to Ireland for the Dublin City Comic Com.
Running November 22nd and 23rd, the third annual Dublin Comic Con promises a stellar lineup and with guests from previous years including such comic luminaries as Jim Lee, Bryan Hitch and graphic novelist Mark Millar of the big screen success WANTED, we expect this year’s guest-list to be equally star studded.
Who’s his favourite Doctor? Ask Doctor Who scribe Paul Cornellis at this year’s Dublin Comic Con.
And so far, star studded it certainly is. Bosnian-born Adi Granov, for example, not only draws for the Iron Man comic, but also designed the Iron Man suit used in the recent movie! Paul Cornellis not only writing the hugely successful Captain Britain And MI:13 for Marvel Comics, but has also written extensively for TV, including episodes of Doctor Who and Primeval and Dan Slott is currently writing two of Marvel Comics’s hottest titles, She Hulk and The Amazing Spider-Man. This year’s con also features three Irish artists who have made it big in the world of comics: Stephen Mooney, Nick Roche and Stephen Thompson.
Iron Man versus Batman? Ask Adi Granov the designer of THE suit at this year’s Con.
The organizers will be running panels and signings throughout both days, spread across two dealer rooms and a lecture theatre/screening room.

CB Cebulski , writer of Marvel Fairy Tales and X-Men Divided: We Stand;
