WILD ABOUT COMICS returns to the Birmingham Wildlife & Conservation Park for another fun-packed day out for all the family today!

Kids can take part in a treasure hunt and win free comics; meet cartoonists and artists like The Beano‘s Laura Howell and the Legion of Superheroes‘ Roland Bird, caricaturist Mike Ball – With more guests to be announced – And they will be drawing for the toddlers, kids get to join in and draw and colour their own pictures, enter fun competitions (come and cosplay!) and if the weather holds out the artists might even be drawing a comic strip in chalk outside!

All this and you get to see the animals too – An absolutely brilliant time, no one’s ever gone away disappointed by a WILD About Comics event.
