What is Phantacom 2016?

Phantacom celebrates fantasy and science fiction from different perspectives.

This year at Phantacom we want to celebrate Star Trek’s 50th anniversary. This will be done through a small exhibition, a master-class and the screening of one of the most-loved episodes of the series. And the coolest costume Star Trek-related will win our cosplay contest. Live long and prosper!

We also want to celebrate Roald Dahls’ 100th anniversary by reading some chapters of his children’s books, and with activities and games related to his work. There will also be time to screen parts of the movies based on the best storyteller’s work. Plus you will get the chance to participate in a golden ticket lottery!

Star Wars will be present as well at Phantacom! We will organize a presentation of the photo book Herederos de la Guerra de las Galaxias, which has not been published yet in Finland. There will be an exhibition to showcase the best photos of this photo book as well. There will also be an exhibition of a Spanish parody of Star Wars, Los Cabezones de las Galaxias. These super cool comics have not been published yet in Finland.

Fantasy and science fiction are common to different countries and media. Comic artist Maija Siira will present her graphic novel Kirjoitukset, which started as her beloved online comic. This is your chance to meet with the artist as she will be available at Phantacom for signing and to talk with the fans.

El Libro de Sarah: La Fortaleza del tiempo, a new fantasy series in Spanish, will also be presented at Phantacom. This amazing series has been very well received by Spanish readers and books 2 and 3 are already on their way. We will read some chapters of this series’ first book, and you will have the chance to get a signed copy by the author himself.

Acclaimed professional comic artist Anne Muhonen will be giving a workshop at Phantacom, too. There will be an exhibition of Anne Muhonen’s work as well.

Phantacom is, in a few words, a great way to spend the day for everyone in the family!
