MCM Comic Con will be hosted at the King's Hall on 7 and 8 June 2014 and will bring its celebration of all things to do with comics, sci-fi, anime, gaming and cosplay.
The announcement comes after last week's news that MCM Expo is also launching a show in Dublin next year, as well as expanding its MCM Scotland Comic Con and MCM Manchester Comic Con events.
Commenting on the new show, MCM co-organiser Paul Miley said: "We're delighted to be bringing our popular comic con brand to Belfast next year.
"After we announced our new Dublin show, Northern Irish comic book fans were asking when they were going to get an event ...well, here it is!
"With MCM shows now covering the whole of England, Ireland and Scotland, there's never been a better time for gamers, comic collectors, sci-fi enthusiasts, movie buffs and fans of geek culture in general to check out the comic con scene."
MCM co-organiser Bryan Cooney added: "As the recent record-breaking Scotland Comic Con proved, there's an increasing appetite for MCM comic conventions at the moment.
"We'd like everyone to come along and experience one for themselves, and with our ever-expanding roster of top quality events, that's never been easier."
The organisers have not revealed who will be making an appearance at the convention, but with the region attracting top fantasy productions such as HBO's Game of Thrones and a new Dracula movie, fans will be hoping for some star attractions.
