Glasgow's popular festival of comic books and cosplay will soar to new heights in 2016 as it takes up residence in the Royal Concert Hall.
Now in its sixth year, Glasgow Comic Con (GCC) plan to top a sell-out weekend which saw around 5000 comic fans descend on three venues earlier this year.
GCC boasted some of the biggest names in the comic book arena with signings, panels and live draws from the likes of Mark Millar, Sean Phillips and The Beano's very own Nigel Parkinson.
The CCA, Art School and Renfield Centre played host to the extended five-day programme and will act as hubs for events next year too, with movie screenings, free exhibitions and comic artists in residence.
However, the main event in 2016 will enable traders, comic creators, artists and cosplayers to gather under one roof with more space for fans to meet their heroes.
GCC director Sha Nazir said: "We're expanding really so that we can reach a larger audience. We want to move the Comic Con weekend into the heart of the city centre while still retaining what we're doing as a comic festival.
"There will still be a hub at the CCA for literature, artwork and artists in residence, that all works really well because it allows the festival a link to the arts.
"But we're also reaching out to a family audience and perhaps introduce some new people to comics.
"I'd like to break 5000 tickets for over the weekend. We engaged with 10,000 people over the whole event in 2015, with 4500 people through doors over the weekend. That's a massive jump from the 2800 in 2014.
"We're having lots of good conversations with different people for the 2016 guest line-up - we're looking for six headliners from Britain and six international.
"There are potentially some really exciting people getting involved and there will be some cross overs from comics into TV and film."
The 2016 GCC festival will run from June 28 - July 3, with the Royal Concert Hall event set for July 2 - 3.
Tickets will be on sale from February 2016.
