Africa’s first Comic Con is coming to Johannesburg in September and will hold at the Kyalami Convention Centre between the 14th to 16th. Comic Con, an exciting pop culture festival that features comic books, fantasy films and science fiction with its origins in San Diego, has hosted festivals in several cities in the Americas and Europe.

We are also very excited to be partnering with VS Gaming to bring this world-renowned convention to South Africa. Comic Con Africa is a fantastic opportunity to promote this growing industry on the continent.
