Kapow! Comic Convention will not return in 2013.

Organisers Lucy and Sarah Unwin announced that Mark Millar's London-based event will not be held next year.

"Due to an increased workload in Millarworld and Millarworld Productions, we will not have time to arrange another wonderful Kapow! Comic Convention in 2013," they said in a statement.

"Sarah and I have had to make a very tough decision, and after much deliberation and poring over upcoming work schedules, we have decided to put Kapow! 2013 on hold.

"The event is a genuine pleasure to work on and everyone has been a total delight, but this year we are unable to dedicate the time necessary to deliver a weekend that once again exceeds the expectations of attendees, guests, exhibitors, publishers and studios."

The second event this summer attracted big names in comic publishing including Dan DiDio, Eric Stephenson and Joe Quesada, alongside a host of Millar's collaborators including Bryan Hitch, Dave Gibbons and Frank Quitely.

Millarworld Productions will debut its first television show Pavilion of Dreams on BBC One Scotland in January.
