A SPECIAL event returns to the Dee Valley later this month.

Llangollen's Royal International Pavilion will be the setting for the second Llangollen Comic Con.

This family fun day event will take place on Sunday, July 22 (10am-5pm).

The day will feature all things related to superheroes and sci-fi, covering Star Wars, Dr Who and other popular TV-related programmes.

Following along the lines of the original traditional comic cons first established in the UK in the late 1960s and early 1970s, the Llangollen venue will be packed with exhibitors selling Marvel and DC Comics, from vintage right through to the present day.

There will also be toys, T-shorts, Manga and other related memorabilia available.

Among the guests for this years event will be prop builder Sean Dutton, actor Nathan Head, Dyfrig Griffiths - known for his Iron Warrior Cosplay - comic artist John Wagner, and actress Vera Fossett.

Vera landed the part as Juggler in the Bond movie Octopussy, alongside the late Sir Roger Moore.

Later, she landed the part as a juggler in the medieval film The Bride, with Sting and Jennifer Beals.

Also included in the line-up for the day is Gavin Lee Lewis, C J Gutteridge and Dr Who actor Francois Pandolfo, who is best known for his portrayal of Quintus in Dr Who’s “The Fires of Pompeii” alongside David Tennant and Peter Capaldi.
