Comic-Con finally comes to South Africa
So you may have heard the news last week. But if not, Comic-Con will be coming to South Africa in 2018. While we have had quite a few geek-related events over the years. The 925 family have been regulars at Geek Fest for years now. But Comic-Con is a whole other level. In partnership with VS Gaming and Reed Exhibitions, SA Comic-Con will hit the Kayalami Convention Centre 14 -16 September 2018.
Local stars John Kani and Connie Chuime, fresh off the success of Black Panther will be in attendance. International confirmed stars include video game voice actors Troy Baker and Nolan North have already been confirmed. Some stars of Game of Thrones and Big Bang Theory have also been speculated.
In true Comic-Con fashion, there will be eSports, Comics, video gaming, tabletop and board gaming, novels, anime and manga, and collectables. No doubt there will also be plenty of awesome cosplay on display. Both by professionals and amateurs alike.
I for one am really excited about this prospect, and barring some sort of disaster (Quite possible knowing me), you shall catch me there in all my glory. Probably tripping over some antique Deadpool figurine and maiming my big toe. But in a glorious manner.
