Media Release — After the previous announcements of artists Frank Cho (USA), Dave Gibbons(UK), famed cartoonist Lectrr (BE), Brandon Peterson (USA), fantasy-artist Anne Stokes (UK) and actress Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3) to our 20th anniversary show in Gent, Belgium, we are now pleased to introduce European artist Adrien Floch.
Adrien Floch reached the international market when French publisher Soleil teamed up with USA-based Marvel Comics, to translate and distribute French titles like the beloved YTHAQ-series, in which a cruise-ship crashes and three heroes are battling the unusual inhabitants of this unchartered planet. Floch is renowned for his detailed work on the planet itself, since Ythaq (plants and animals) is as much a main persona in these stories as are the sexy Granite and Callista!
“I am in love with Ythaq and cannot wait to meet the person dedicated and responsible for this series.”, said Emmanuel van Melkebeke, F.A.C.T.S. Convention Director. “Adrien will be a massive success since fans did request his presence… you can never say we do not listen to the visitors and fans of FACTS! I even heard about cosplayers prepping themselves to come as Callista and Granite. If there is one reason to come to FACTS then it will be when the cosplayers meet up with “their” creator!”
Many more guests, including artists and actors, are still to be announced.
F.A.C.T.S Comicon is the signature pop culture event of the Benelux, presenting guests and programming to cater for the top segments of the comics, anime, sci-fi, film, TV, and gaming industries.
Entering its 20th anniversary year, F.A.C.T.S. is expected to draw over 14,000+ attendees to its October 23-24, 2010 convention held at the Gent Flanders Expo Convention Center located in Gent, Belgium.
The show will sport 12,000 square meters and will host over a mile of dealers of toys, comics, movie merchandise, fantasy merchandise, manga and will see 400+ cosplayers and an entire fan-village, as well as loads of surprises, to brighten up the already amazing venue!
