TeamGCCC are delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting Celebrity Car Hire at Granite City Comic Con 2017.
Coming to the venue we will have the mighty GMC van from The A-Team, Starsky & Hutch‘s Gran Torino and the wonderful KITT from Knight Rider. The team from Celebrity Car Hire will be on hand to show you around the vehicles and answer all those questions you had about your favourite cars from TV.
Team GCCC is chuffed to announce the return of Judge Dredd creator for GCCC20017.
As well creating Dredd, John brought Strontium Dog and Al’s Baby to the pages of 2000AD for many years, John also worked on various Batman comics with long-standing writing partner and GCCC 2015 guest Alan Grant, as well as a number of licensed titles such as Doctor Who and Star Wars for Dark Horse. In 1997 John wrote A History of Violence, which was later adapted by David Cronenburg for screen.
John’s most recent comic – Rok of the Reds, a new collaboration with Alan Grant published by BHP Comics – has been described as ‘…a joyful blending of sport and Sci-fi…’ John will be signing both days at GCCC2017
Following on from our first guest announcement earlier in the week, we’re eager to tell you what else we have in stock for 2017.
TeamGCCC are delighted to announce that we’ll be hosting the Retro Computer Museum at Granite City Comic Con 2017.
The Retro Computer Museum is a registered charity dedicated to the benefit of the public for the preservation, display and public experience of computer and console systems from the 1960’s onwards.
Their main focus is on systems that were in use in the home and schools rather than big computer systems and mainframes of early computer development. They have systems ranging from the early Pong consoles through to the Sega and Nintendo console wars and the home computers of the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64s and Amigas.
We’ll be hosting 20 separate machines over the weekend for everyone to relive fond childhood memories and experience gaming from a different era.

Hi Guys, here at TeamGCCC we’ve always had the ethos of supporting creativity and rather than just do this at our events, we’ve set aside a fund he help small independent creators get their projects off the ground – so we want to hear from folks that are running a kick-starter (or similar) or planning to do so; and from anyone who thinks their project could benefit from our help. Please message us or post in our forum below with details if you think we can help.
