Since we started doing ICE in 2014 quite a few fans have asked about con T-shirts. A nice souvenir of the show that you can keep and wear in years to come.
So this year for the first ever time, as we have commissioned some amazing artwork from Doctor Who artist Simon Myers, we thought we’d also create a cool T-shirt design for our attendees.
Limited to only 100 T-shirts this exclusive garment can only be purchased directly from us and can only be collected from the show. This means that only those who support the show will be able to own this ultra rare T-shirt featuring the official ICE Poster artwork by Simon and designed by Andrew Richmond.
So you can wear yours with absolute pride!
You can either pre order your T-shirt for collection from reception when you arrive and we’ll then email you for your size before we go to print or you can take a chance and hope there are some left on the door in your size. Sizes range from small to extra large.

Have you ever wondered how the comics you read are coloured digitally or even held ambitions of becoming a comics colour artist yourself?
Well we are thrilled to announce that at ICE this year Dylan Teague, colourist for 2000ad, Marvel UK and Titan takes you through the basics of comic colouring. From prepping the page, doing flats, adding texture and rendering, in an exclusive live demo.

Multi Award winning British artist Glenn Fabry, famous for his stunning cover art on titles such as Preacher as Hellblazer has confirmed as the latest big name guest for Britain’s Coolest Comic Convention.
The Young Glenn Fabry left school early to study illustration at Twickenham Art College, He gained his first professionally published work at the tender age of 15 with a strip called “Jackinblack” in ‘Strangled’, the Stranglers fan club magazine.
In 1984 he was given his first work at 2000ad by Pat Mills thanks to a recommendation by Bryan Talbot on the now legendary ‘Slaine’ series following Mike McMahon, which he remembers as a daunting prospect. However he soon impressed fans with his dynamic page design and strong detailed drawing style.
The first ever appearance of Batman Villain Bane.
Throughout the 90’s and 2000’s he produced hundreds of iconic cover paintings for 2000ad, DC Comics, Marvel and Vertigo, plus many others.
He remains one of the most sought after artists in the industry and we are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Glenn for his first ever ICE appearance in Birmingham this September.
