What Is It?


An annual two-day event for comic book, television, anime and sci-fi fans, ComicCon is back and how. Famous worldwide for bringing together top talents across the industry, this is you chance at uninhibited geekiness. Plus, you try saying no to meeting the who's who of the Geekland. Todd Nauk {Spider-Man, Teen Titans}, JM DeMatteis {Batman, Justice League}, Shamik Dasgupta {Ramayan 3392 A.D.} are just a few already on the cards, and we can't be more thrilled. And don't worry if you don't have stuff in your cupboard to dress up with. You can keep calm and pick up merchandise from the official Comic Con booth,, The Entertainment Store and GraphicCurry, among others. And naturally you can't leave without posters, action figures, clothing and accessories, no?

Who Is It For?


Self-professed geeks and nerds, this is the perfect time to get out and show us what you’re made of. If you’re neither of those things, but still interested in pop-culture or just looking to learn more and have an awesome time then this is for you, too. And yes, TV stuff  counts strongly here. So all you Game Of Thrones fans, don't go putting your nose in the air. In fact, last year, Game of Thrones stars Daniel Portman {Podrick} and Natalia Tena {Osha}, came by.

Why Should I Go For It?


Meet like-minded individuals, chat with your favourite comics artist, buy cool stuff, dress up as your favourite character — need we say more? If you’re into cosplay, check out their contest for a chance to win INR 50,000 and a place in the Indian Championship Of Cosplay finale, or just go as your favourite character to keep in the spirit of things! Get as fun, crazy and quirky as you want — no one’s judging! The event is a perfect place to meet like-minded people and discover new material to obsess over. Either pick up individual day passes, or go for their Super Fan two-day pass.


Star Wars and Doctor Strange fans, you’re in luck! In light of Rogue One’s upcoming release, Comic Con is setting up a special booth, complete with Stormtroopers and the Death Star for all those rebels-at-heart! Also check out Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Santorum and enter the Sorcerer’s Supreme Domain, where you can click pictures and enjoy a pretty cool experience!
