This is the second annual event and organisers say it will be bigger than last year

The Cork Comic Expo is back today for fans in the city.

The event's being run with award-winning illustrator Will Sliney and Big Bang Comics at Mahon Point Shopping Centre.

Will is best-known for his work on Spider-Man, Scarlet Spider, Fearless Defenders and Star Wars.

Savills Marketing Commercialisation and Research Division spokesperson Nicola Cogan says it's going to be huge;

"It's the only free comic expo in Ireland so this year it's going to be bigger and better than ever.

The event has doubled in size, it's going to be taking up both floors of Mahon Point Shopping Centre and we're expecting thousands of super hero  fans as creators and illustrators gather for this event."
