VIECC Vienna Comic Con 2017
60 star guests, more than 55 hours of program and their own craft beer - this is what this year’s edition of the VIECC Vienna Comic Con (VIECC), which takes place on 18 and 19 November in the Messe Wien, offers.
Premiere for VIECC Craft beer “Aurora Craft”.
From the point of view of Star Tref fans - and the editorial team is fully satisfied - there will be 3 special highlights this year.
Captain Lorca from USS Discovery - Jason Isaacs
His fans know Jason Isaacs through his role as villain Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films. But also as a commander of a star cruiser makes the originating Liverpool actor a good figure. As of September 25, Isaacs will be seen exclusively on Netflix as Captain Gabriel Lorca of the TV series Star Trek: Discovery. On the 18th and 19th of November VIECC visitors will also be able to marvel at Jason Isaacs at Messe Wien. That’s when the newly-minted Star Trek Captain arrives as star guest at the Vienna Comic and Entertainment Expo. Isaacs is available for autographs and photos at the VIECC and participates in a panel.
The Great Nagus Rom of the Ferrengi Alliance graces us on the way to the station Deep Space 9 with his illustrious visit. Do not forget your slips made of gold-pressed latinum for an audience.
The Great Nagus has his Bajoran wife Leeta, formerly a Dabo girl in the bar of Quark, Rome’s brother on the Deep Space 9 station.
For the third edition of VIECC, organizer Reed Exhibitions has come up with something special and introduces the first VIECC Craft beer. The idea comes from the ReedPOP colleagues from America, the creators behind the New York Comic Con (NYCC). Their Brooklyn Defender IPA is already in its sixth edition. In Vienna, beer brewing has taken over 100 flowers from the Atzgersdorf Brewery. Owner and master brewer Alexander Forstinger has created a craft beer from water, malt and the specially full-bodied Aurora hops, which is now the first official VIECC Craft beer as Aurora Craft.
Hollywood visits Vienna
The stars of film and television are also very popular at the VIECC. Star guests include Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter), Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings), Temuera Morrison (Star Wars) and many more. All stars are available for autographs and photos with the fans (buying a token in advance is required).
