Disney Comic Artist Patrick Block to Comic Con

Meet Disney artists Patrick and Shelly Block at Disneyana's stand

For over 20 years, Patrick and Shelly have enjoyed creating hundreds of projects for various Walt Disney Comic Books. Working with Donald Duck, Uncle Scrooge and their various family members, the Blocks both write and draw complete stories which have appeared in over 40 languages around the globe.

Their stories have ranged from taut six page tales of Donald Duck’s everyday household life, to 33 page Harvey Award nominated detective epics involving intrigue and mystery.

Near the end of 1996, Carl Barks worked up his last Donald Duck story idea, titled “Somewhere in Nowhere.” Carl Barks enjoyed Patrick’s free-wheeling, action-packed art style so he chose Patrick to illustrate “the Good Duck Artist’s” last Donald Duck adventure script.

The Blocks enjoy handling these fantastic and beloved characters for Disney. Recent years have found them expanding into the Disney gaming market, where they have acted as Conceptual Artists bringing the “classic” ducks into these more modern genres of entertainment.

Comic Con Copenhagen will host NCC qualifier!

We are proud to announce that Comic Con Copenhagen will have a qualifier for the Nordic Cosplay Championships!

NCC is a contest organised by Närcon since 2012. The final takes place every year during the summer in Linköping, Sweden. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden pick out the best of the best from their respective cosplay scene. These 13 cosplayers then meet at the NCC to compete for glory and prizes, including a trip to Japan for two. On Sunday, Comic Con Copenhagen will have a qualifier for the Nordic Cosplay Championships. The winner of the competition earns a spot in Team Denmark in the NCC. The qualifier is based on how the NCC finale works. This means that the contestants will be judged in both performance and craftsmanship. The craftsmanship is inspected by our panel of judges on an individual pre-judging time of 10 – 15 min for each contestant. The performance is judged during the show on Saturday where the contestants will each perform a ~2 minute long performance.

This competition has an application time ending on February 25 2018. Applications are sent in via a Typeform found here.

New Chewbacca to Comic Con Copenhagen

Joonas Suotamo is Special Guest at Comic Con Copenhagen

Joonas Suotamo grew up in Espoo, Finland and first became interested in acting through his performances in local plays during his youth. Later on, a basketball scholarship offered him the opportunity to go and study at the Pennsylvania State University in the United States. During his time at university, Joonas chose film studies over acting because of the perceived lack of roles for tall people. 

Never one to give up on his dreams, his film studies and interest in acting paid off when he was cast in the highly anticipated blockbuster movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens to act as the double for the iconic character of Chewbacca. After the films massive success his hard work was awarded and he was cast as Chewbacca to play the role in both Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the Untitled Han Solo spin-off film and would once again bring to screen the Wookiee that we all love.
