Nerds unite: The amazing Comic Con is coming to Africa
All fans of the Big Bang Theory, as well as of the Marvel and DC comics heroes can celebrate. The legendary Comic-Con is coming to South Africa. The event will be held at the Kyalami International Convention Centre on September 14-16.
The comic extravaganza will see African comic enthusiasts, geeks, gamers and nerds alike come together in their superhero outfits and feast on the three-day event, which will be similar to the already established Comic Con San Diego or Comic Con Seattle.
Tickets are already available through the South African platform Computicket. Ticket sales will consist of two launch phases, each with different pricing. Attendees who purchase tickets during Phase One will pay slightly less, although there is a limited number of tickets available. The prices vary from 120 rand (about 10 USD) for a one day ticket to 350 rand (about 30 USD) for the whole event.
Comic-Con is one of the most significant pop-culture events in the U.S., and the African version will also feature almost everything pop culture, from superhero comics to gaming – plus a host of international stars you have become accustomed to in mainstream media. It will also be used to promote new series and movies, comic books, anime, and manga.
Probably the most exciting prospect for series lovers is that there will be discussions with members of the “Game Of Thrones” and “The Big Bang Theory” casts. There will also be a cosplay competition, for fans dressed up as their favorite characters.
