Monopoly Events CEO Andy Kleek said: “When we came to Scotland, our commitment to the Scottish public was that we promised to bring the best pop culture events north of the border, and we are sticking to that promise.”

In previous years Monopoly Events has established Comic Con in Edinburgh - with huge guests such as Christopher Lloyd, Jean Claude Van Damme, and The Undertaker.

Mr Kleek added: “We realise there are other areas in the country that also wanted to see Comic Con closer to them. One of the areas we outlined was the North East, so we have acted on feedback and have decided to bring Comic Con to the city of Aberdeen.”

Claire-Lena Miller-Davis, exhibition sales manager at P&J Live said: “We are delighted to have been selected as the venue of choice in the North East of Scotland for next year’s Comic Con and look forward to hosting the two-day event within the Baker Hughes Exhibition and Conference Hub.

“These events always prove hugely popular, drawing the comic book and film fan community together to share in their passion for heroes and villains. With opportunities to explore many awe-inspiring stands, meet and greet film favourites and see film props up close, comic con fans should start planning their cosplay outfits now for an event to remember.”

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, August 13 at www.pandjlive.com
