ICE 2016 – Room 2  Special Events

11.00 – Goldtiger: The Truth Behind The Legend –
Join renowned creators, comics historians, and erotic dancers Jimmy Broxton and Guy Adams as they present a fully illustrated seminar on their unearthing of Goldtiger, the sixties newspaper strip posterity forgot. Why was this seminal strip neglected for so many decades? What caused the Baskerville Newspaper group to pull the plug on such a prestigious project? Why was Malta the only country that embraced the strip? Did artist, Antonio Barreti actually kill his long-suffering scriptwriter Louis Schaeffer? How many pictures of naked ladies does Jimmy Broxton hold on his hard drive? Is there a limit to the number of cats Guy Adams can own? Is any of this remotely true? Do you care?
The discussion, and accompanying visual presentation will contain new art, new information and mature themes (most probably discussed in a vaguely immature way).

It sounds more like a chat show. It's not a comic con unless there are old comics to buy!

You're thinking of a comic mart. A comic con has always had guests and talks. There will be tables selling comics as well though.
