Ten-Second Takeaway

Mumbai’s Comic Con is back with its sixth edition and we figured out the five most exciting things to look forward to this year.

The Low-Down

To start off with, the fest will be headlined by Jim Beaver, who plays the gruff but tenderhearted Bobby Singer in Supernatural, this year. Second, along with Beaver, the audience is slated to see Cameron Stewart {he’s worked on numerous DC and Marvel and Dark Horse comics}, Edwin Huang {NYC-based illustrator} and Dan Goldman {co-creator and artist of the hugely popular augmented reality comic book series, Priya’s Shakti}.

Third, there will be a cosplay competition, where the the jury will choose one winner each day {INR 50,000 to be won}. Four, there’ll be gaming zones {AXN, WWE, Nodwin} and exclusive comic book launches.

And finally, apart from the events there’s also merch to be owned from brands like Planet Superheroes, The Souled Store, Frog, Funk For Hire, The Entertainment Store, Graphicurry, Macmerise, MC Sid Razz, Vox Pop Clothing, Superhero Toy Store, GeekGoodies, G2A.com and many more will be selling off their goodies.

Anything Else?

We support the ongoing popular culture scene that has slowly emerged over the years, where people are finally seeing gaming and cosplaying in a different light. Head on over if you’d like to spend a weekend talking about manga, anime and superheroes. Also, meet cosplayers and fellow geeks.
