All my life Comic Con was a distant object for me, Since i was in neither of the 4 host cities. Till date it was only something i saw or heard on TV or movies.. But that changed this year. Thanks to my son @jay kumar singh ..A Day I will never forget…..What a weekend it was, The Special Guests, The Artists, The Fan Zones, The Cosplayers, The Performances and Comics and more Comics. It was a wonderful experience.
Everything was organized, volunteers were helpful. Moreover, the audience was great .
it went soooooo good that my legs started paining but i dont wanted to leave that place. Loved the crowd. Loved their enthusiasm for fiction world. Next year planning to be part of Cosplay?…. with jay .

What about cosplay?
If you’re a hardcore fan and wish to cosplay, here are the things you must know: You can dress up as whoever you want and walk around the centre. Based on how uncanny your appearance is with respect to the character you’re portraying, you’ll get a thumbs up from Con and – wait for it – a reward of ₹50,000. Oh, and there will be one winner on both the days. If you happen to win on either, you’ll be eligible to contest in the Indian Championship of Cosplay (ICC). But it doesn’t end there. If you manage to win the final round at the ICC, you’ll get to officially represent the country at the Annual Crown Championships of Cosplay.
Are you a fan of the Transformers comic book? How about Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Assassins Creed? Okay, we’re certain that as kids, you’ve binge-read Tinkle. Well, would you like to meet the artists who have been responsible for them? Because I find them at this year’s Con. Nick Seluk (creator of Awkward Yeti), Andrew Griffith (artist of Transformers), Yishan Li (artist of Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Assassins Creed), David Lloyd (illustrator of V for Vendetta and founder of Aces Weekly), Abhijeet Kini (the founder of Abhijeet Kini Studios, illustrator for Tinkle), Sailesh Gopalan (Creator of Brown Paperbag comics), Saumin Patel (comic book illustrator of the Agent Vinod graphic novel.), Sumit Kumar (cartoonist & creator of Bakarmax), Tarun Kumar Sahu (Comic Book Artist at ICBM), Rajeev Tamhankar (CEO of TBS Planet Comics) and Vivek Goel (Founder Of Holy Cow Entertainment). This year, the organisers of Comic Con Mumbai 2017 have a special entertainment section where you’ll see comedians Mallika Dua, Sahil Shah, popular YouTubers Beyounik, Prajakta Koli and International Pro Cosplayer, Nicole Marie Jean as well.
The Cosplay was no doubt, amazing. Seeing the guys and girls putting so much efforts in preparing their costumes was beyond my words.
I’ll visit again next year.
