I have this comic bug in me for so long than I can remember. Since childhood, my fascination for comics just grew like an enormous tree. Comics are one of the reason why I started sketching in the first place. I still cannot forget the days when we friends used to gather up at a place and wait till our favourite comics played on TV and enjoyed watching with a plate of hot chilli bajji’s my friend’s mom used to prepare for us kids.
After years of immersing myself in the world of books, TV series and movies based on my favourite comics, I was introduced to COMIC-CON by a friend of mine around 7 years back! I thank her for adding this enthusiastic set into my life. One-go for enough for me it to become the most loved event I so eagerly wait for every year! How can one miss out on an event like comic con which features the best works of Comics, Movies, Television, Gaming & Cosplay! Comic-Con forever has those imprints in my heart by now. So, like the last year, I am gearing up for the 6th edition of COMIC-CON hosted at Maruti Suzuki Arena of HYDERABAD COMIC CON on October 13 & 14, 2018. That is TOMORROW! A big shout out for that alone!
I am so excited about the events lined up for tomorrow which goes as follows;
To start with, there is going to be a line up of special guests like comic book artists/writers TY Templeton, a Canadian comic book artist and writer who has drawn for a number of popular titles for Marvel Comics, DC Comics, including popular series like The Batman Adventures and Batman 66 series, Superman comics, and TV-associated comics for The Simpsons. Mathew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss – the critically-acclaimed creative team behind the comic book series 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank and the recently released What’s the Furthest Place From Here? And Arthur Suydam, an Award-winning cover artist on Walking Dead, Marvel Zombies, Deadpool, and Black Panther. Isn’t that cool to catch them live at the most celebrated comic event of the galaxy! That’s just the start fellas! There is a lot more in the store like ultimate gaming zones one can be part of which is set on the action-packed main stage! It would be a treat to one who enjoys playing games like my brother, who can just go on for days playing games without food! If that is not enough to woo you, then behold! To add to the ever-growing list, Sahil Shah from East India Comedy and VIVA will also be performing live at the show, along with other famous YouTube stars!
It is always great to witness the amount of time and effort a person clocks-in to compete in Costume Play. Even if we let the cash prize of INR 50,000 slide, I do not think the craze for it ends! That’s how much many enjoy being a part of the whole grand scene. I for one am crazy about getting my picture clicked with cosplayers and make a word note by appreciating them for their efforts.
With a new addition to the experience zones from none other than Marvel India, Warner Bros India, AXN, Sony Pix, Nodwin -ESL India, AMD and, Maruti Suzuki the event is going to get even more exciting! Check out the entire line up of Fan Experience Zones below:
