Enthusiasts for sci-fi, comics, fantasy and games will be ready for cosplay as the first ever ComicCon is planned for the Western Isles in April.

A planning meeting has been set for March 5 to bring plans for OH!CON (Outer Hebrides ComicCon) to fruition, with contributors of all kinds welcome to attend.

Excitement is building for the event, planned for Saturday 25 April at Western Isles Library, even though the programme itself hasn’t been announced. Organisers promise it will include talks, workshops and activities for the whole family.

They’re looking for people prepared to add their energy and talents to the event, whether as an enthusiast, a model, an artist or just as someone prepared to get the work done to make sure the event runs smoothly.

You can find out more about OH!CON from the website here or by following Western Isles Libraries on Facebook. The planning meeting is on Thursday 5 March at 6pm at Stornoway Library and all potential volunteers are welcome to come along.
