SINGAPORE - After a flirtation with the movies last year that drew a record turnout, the Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention is going back to basics.

The focus this year will be on comics, collectibles and, in particular, the creators behind some of the most popular works today.

Guests this year include Humberto Ramos, a Mexican artist known for his Spider-Man work; Alex Solis, creator of The Famous Chunkies line of overweight superheroes; and Simone Legno, an Italian artist who is behind the popular tokidoki brand of clothing and toys.

Also on display: comics featuring the first Singaporean superheroes.
