Comic Con Portugal Thursday through Sunday at Parque das Nações in Lisbon was with the best of pop culture. Popcorner, from SAPO Mag, was also on hand to give guest interviews, reports with fans and models and to show off everything that happened at the event.
Popcorner presenters, Inês Gens Mendes and Tiago David, were the moderators of many of the event’s panels. On Friday, Ines Jane Mendes led the discussion on “Once Upon a Time” with actress Lana Barilla at the Comecon Cones Golden Theater, and Thiago David moderated the “A Carreira de Luccas Neto e Gi” episode, with Lucas Neto, one of the world’s biggest YouTubers, and his sister In fiction, J.

On Sunday, at the Golden Theatre, Popcorner presenters had a chat with Noah Schnapp from “Stranger Things” on the panel “The Other Side of Noah Schnapp.”
The seventh edition of Comic Con Portugal was held in various formats, between Thursday and Sunday, at Parque das Nações, in Lisbon, with limited seats and mandatory COVID-19 testing to access the physical spaces.
The event was attended by international actors such as Noah Schnapp, from the Netflix series “Stranger Things”, and Misha Collins from “Sobrenatural”, in addition to the cast members from the Portuguese series “Glória”, directed by Thiago Guedes.
In the comics area, visitors can find authors such as Miguelánxo Prado, Paco Roca, Felipe Mello, Juan Cavia, or Joe Abercrombie, among others.
Comic Con Portugal was supposed to take place last September in Passeio Marítimo de Algés, Oeiras, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as it was rescheduled to a new venue, in Parque das Nações.
Comic Con Portugal was first organized in 2013, at Exponor, in Matosinhos, Porto region, where the first four editions were held.
In 2020, instead of a physical version, the organization decided to hold a free “online” event in September on the official page, with presentations of films, books, comic book content, video games and “cosplay”.
And the last physical copy after that was in 2019, with several spaces and stages for the dissemination of content related to entertainment, cinema, television, comedy and video games, and the attendance of about 140,000 visitors.
