Asia Pop Comicon Manila Heads to SMX Convention Centre


The date and location has been finally set for the upcoming Asia Pop Comicon Manila.

The international comic book convention, Asia Pop Comicon, landed on the shores of Manila last year with its inaugural event held at the World Trade Centre from 17 to 20 September 2015. Featuring big name stars such as Paul Bettany from the Avengers, Colton Hayes from Arrow, and Nathalie Emmanuel from the Game of Thrones, plus exclusive previews of upcoming serials and movies such as an excerpt preview of the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie, the event quickly became a big hit for its Filipino fans who were long waiting for an event such as APCC.

While fans are torn regarding the change of venue, considering the difference in the venue’s size may possibly affect the event’s layout and execution, everyone is already excited and eager to know who this year’s guest stars might be.
