If there’s a highlight on my calendar for 2017, it isn’t E3 or my upcoming heatstroke episode that’ll occur at rAge this year. Rather, it was my first trip to FanCon. Good friends, awesome crowds and an atmosphere that was positively charged made for a thrilling event. I’m passionate about comic books, and having a chance to meet international talent this year was a massive win.

Situated in a cosy wing of the Cape Town International Convention Center, FanCon played host to the likes of Top Cow big cheese Tom Hawkins, legendary comic book writer Ron Marz, John “Chew” Layman and Eric “Hillbilly” Powell. It built on a tremendous first outing that kicked off in 2016, growing even larger in 2017.

FanCon grows even bigger this year, as the dates for the 2018 show have been announced: April 28-29:

FanCon 2018 will take place in a larger wing of the Cape Town International Convention Center, perfect for the annual growth that the event experiences. So come on down. You’ll most likely run into myself, Tracy, Noelle and Kervyn. Hell, next year I won’t make the same rookie mistake that I did this year because I sure as hell won’t miss this chance to be in costume.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
