The eighth edition of Comic Con Portugal will take place until Sunday at Parque das Nações, in an area that includes the Altice Arena and surrounding spaces, with an area of 115,000 square meters, to accommodate eight auditoriums and various spaces dedicated to entertainment, cinema, television, cosplay, videogames, and literature.
The director of Comic Con Portugal, Paulo Cardoso, said that the current location is "the best of both worlds", as it includes outdoor and indoor spaces.
This year, among the more than 370 guests are names such as actor Sean Maguire, from the series "Once Upon a Time", actress Dafne Keen and actor Amir Wilson, who star in the series "Mundos Paralelos", or Zachary Levi, from the film "Shazam!", as well as authors Paco Roca, Wes Craig, António Jorge Gonçalves, João Tordo, and Paula Hawkins.
At these events, guest artists participate in public presentations of their work, usually also being available for autograph sessions, photo sessions with spectators, and promotional interviews.
Paulo Cardoso underlined that Comic Con is "an incredible experience", but acknowledged that "Portugal is a difficult country due to the 'box office' [ticket revenue] compared to countries with larger audiences".
