Sadly there will be no weekend convention Hi-Ex event in 2013.
Keep watching here and on social media for any further news in the future.
Hi-Ex 2012 was a great success. This has been the only comic event that brings comics, sci-fi, cartoons and sequential arts to a new audience in the North, while giving existing comic fans in Scotland a convention of their own. The goals are to raise money for charity, to give families and children a chance join in with some good geek fun, and to inspire a new generation to become great Scottish comic creators. Hi-Ex is determined to represent as wide a spectrum as possible of comics: classic British titles, Manga, art, sci-fi, thriller, gaming , fantasy, horror, superheroes, European, cartoons, children’s, independent, humour, and much much more!

“Comic Cons are full of passion and Hi-Ex in Inverness more so than most. If UK comic cons were to be described by body parts then Hi-Ex would be the heart.”
— Stacey Whittle
“Hi-Ex proved to be the most family-orientated comic convention we have attended.”
— Steve Tanner, Time Bomb Comics
I was really impressed with the friendly family atmosphere and genuinely warm reception.”
— Alexander Finbow, Renegade Arts Entertainment
“But I tell you that Hi-Ex is still the best event I’ve ever attended, seriously!”
— Chie Kutsuwada (AKA Chi-Tan)
“One of the aspects of the very first Hi-Ex which struck me was what a wonderful family atmosphere there was to the proceedings, with young children as delighted as adults and clearly having a ball.
“I believe the organisers of Hi-Ex, with experience of large-scale events and smaller, in-class workshops, have opened a door for Scotland and especially the Highlands, bringing in audiences and highly respected writers and artists to Inverness.”
— Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet
