The traveling version of Comic Con India is invading Hyderabad this September!
To avoid the expense of traveling overseas to a comic convention, a group of youngsters in Delhi created one of their own some years back. Comic Con India has now grown into multiple events that take place across the country. The high profile world class events cater not only to fans of comics, but also gaming, television, movies, merchandise, toys, food and more! Till now, Mumbai, Bangalore and Delhi have been hosts to the convention.
Each year, Comic Con India invades a new city. This year, they are going take Hyderabad by storm with the Comic Con Express, which is a traveling version of the convention. This is the third express edition, but Hyderabad’s first convention. The aim is to boost the embryonic comic culture in India by taking the best the Indian comics industry has to offer. The event will also seek to promote local writers and artists from different cities, who will be given the opportunity to interact with established talent and a platform to present their work to the industry.
A slew of fun-filled and interactive activities are in store for you – from workshops to exclusive launches to book signings and a lot much more!
Here’s a highlight of what you can look forward to:
Costume Play: Children as well as grown-ups can come dressed as their favorite comic, superhero or gaming characters. Prizes to be won!
Workshops: with creators, artists and writers of popular comics and graphic novels.
Book launches: New titles to be launched!
Merchandise: Lots and lots of exclusive merchandise from all over the world!
Sessions: with leading writers and artists in the country.
