East European Comic Con 2022 All the info that you need - and a little bit extra



East European Comic Con 2022
August 26-28, 2022

Bucharest, Romania

Comic Convention

Organized by East European Comic Con

The event celebrates pop culture since 2013 in Bucharest, Romania and it is organized by Yuzu Events & Kick off Events.

EECC brings together all those who love Comic books, movies, TV series, Sci-Fi and fantasy, Gaming, Japanese culture, Anime, Manga, boardgames, trading card games and last but not least, technology. It is no secret that the famous San Diego Comic Con International was the main source of inspiration when we tailored our event. After many editions, East European Comic Con has became one of the most important events of its kind in Europe and the most important event in Eastern Europe.

Therefore, the main and official language of the event is English.

East European Comic Con 2022: all the information (so far)

East European Comic Con 2022 takes place in less than a month, more precisely on the weekend of August 26-28, at Romexpo (Bucharest). If you don't already have tickets, you might want to hurry because passes for all three days of the event are about to sell out.

In the following month, all the information about the event will be gradually revealed: what, how, where, who, etc. We'll keep track of every bit of news and centralize it here in this article that you can always come back to for information about the activities available at your favorite event.

Who are the guest actors?

The 6 actors who will be present at the festival are Graham McTavish, Clive Standen, Sebastian Roché, Ross Marquand, Simon Merells and Kevin McNally. You can find the tickets for each on this link.

You recognize Graham McTavish from series like Lucifer, The Witcher or Castlevania on Netflix, you've heard his voice in numerous thrilling action video games (see Uncharted or Call of Duty) and let's not forget The Hobbit. How soon will we see in the new series House of the Dragon, prequel Game of Thrones, starting August 21 on HBO.

Clive Standen played Rollo in the series Vikings, she also appeared in Camelot, Doctor Who, Robin Hood and Taken.

Sebastian Roché is best known as the angel Balthazar in Supernatural, but he also stood out in The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, The Young Pope or Fringe. He will return to horror territory in Guillermo del Toro's anthology Cabinet of Curiosities.

Update: Sebastian Roché will no longer participate in the event due to filming that now overlaps the EECC schedule. The actor promises, however, that he will help the May 2023 edition. Another actor will be announced during the week.

Ross Marquand was the first actor announced for this year's edition. In addition to a presence in Avengers: Endgame and The Walking Dead, he voiced numerous animated characters in productions such as What If... or Phineas and Ferb. He is also able to perfectly imitate various personalities.

Simon Merells stood out in Spartacus, Good Omens and Knightfall, and we can't wait to see him in the Lord of the Rings series, The Rings of Power starting September 2nd on Amazon Prime.

Kevin McNally is instantly recognizable as Master Gibbs in all five Pirates of the Caribbean movies. He has played roles in productions such as Supernatural, The Crown, Downton Abbey, Designated Survivor and others. The scene of theater and that of voice acting for video games is also known to him.

What other guests are coming?

Creative Monkeyz couldn't be missing from this edition. But at this edition, Codin and Ramona will be among the fans, enjoying the Comic Con experience without being restricted by a booth.

It remains to be seen what other guests will delight us at East European Comic Con 2022 both in the booth area and perhaps at the panels.

A unique experience for this year is the debut of an area dedicated to the presentation and tasting of Japanese teas from four renowned producers.

Anime Screenings (Crunchyroll)

This year, through a special Crunchyroll partnership, the Ultimate Experience Area (apparently Tanabate themed) will feature anime screenings. On Friday, the first episode of Classroom of the Elite (Youkoso Jitsuryoku) will air, followed by the first two episodes of Spy x Family!. JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 will also run on the main stage. We await the full schedule of viewings.

If you have a premium Crunchyroll subscription you will be able to collect a prize from the dedicated stand in the Ultimate Experience Area. Or you can get 30 free days from there by scanning a QR code if you don't have a subscription.

After the 2020 hiatus and the reduced space edition in 2021, we can't wait for the 2022 edition which promises to return to the 2019 formula. See you there with all our geek friends on August 26-28! Oh, and if the EECC tradition is maintained by all accounts, expect some rain too. Do you want to see what last year's edition looks like, organized outside?
