What is it all about?

In addition to celebrities from the world of comics and fantasy, there will also be an elite army unit of the Czech Republic, which will show you how it fights, and you can try the CQB intrusion technique. In return, you can then slay them in paintball!

You can show off your luxurious costumes and acting skills in a cosplay competition. It's not just fancy dress, this trend originated in Japan and aims to portray a character's personality as accurately as possible in terms of their costume and behavior.

What famous people can you meet?

One of the main stars at the festival will be comic book illustrator Jim Lee, who is one of the top of contemporary comic artists. He is also a writer and publisher co-operating with Marvel and DC Comics.

Pat Mills, a comic book author from Britain and the founder of the 2000 AD comic book (published since 1977), is also visiting Prague for PragueCon.
