Win one of four full three-day passes to FanCon 2017!

1 min read

You may have noticed a lot of FanCon 2017 content around here lately. There’s a very simple reason for this: We’re hyped! The inaugural showing of Cape Town’s first proper comic book convention blew us away last year with its selection of A-list international/local comic book celebs, amazing panel discussions, awesome exhibitors and colourful cosplay. This year, things are getting even bigger and better as the event moves to the CTICC, more than doubles their guest lineup, boasts over 90 exhibitors and introduces an intriguing new setup to their cosplay shows. And we want you to join us there! For free!

We have four three-day passes to give away some lucky folks out there. Each of these passes will grant one person entry to the comic convention for the entirety of the event, from Saturday 29 April to Monday 1 May at the Cape Town International Convention Centre. So now you can pocket that R240 it would have cost you to instead spend on any of the incredible comic book sales and exhibitor wares that will be on sale at the event!

To enter the competition, you can just hit the button below to tweet an entry. Hate Twitter? Just tell us why you’d like to go in the comments.

The competition will close on Wednesday, 26 April 2017 at 12:00 PM, at which point we will randomly select a winner to be announced on the site. Winners’ names will go on a special list to be held at the FanCon info desk at the expo. Winners can collect their three-day passes there. Winners will be responsible for their own travel.

Just a reminder, to keep up to date with the latest developments around FanCon you can check out the official website, like their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter.

    Don’t choose me, I won’t be able to go, I’m not in Cape Town.
    I just like screwing with the system.

    The reason you should give me the ticket is that I would very much like to go, despite my car insisting I should spend every last cent fixing it as it breaks down bit by bit.

    Twitter is blocked at work, that’s why I’m commenting. I want to go because I looove the art in comics and graphic novels and well, all the geek stuff. I think I’ve proven that enough by being the first person to comment on all of Darryn’s awesome comic-book articles XD
    Also a huge fan of Warren’s stuff. He’s an incredible artist.

    As a friend to many vendors, and personal assistant to the giant space marine cosplayer, I feel it’s my duty to be there and having saved money on tickets means I can support more vendors. Good luck to all competing​.

    I need to hear Eric Powell’s talks. He’s one of my favorite comic artists/writers, and this may be the only time I’m in the same country as him.

    I told my girlfriend that our monthly budget won’t allow for FanCom. Told her its FanCom or FOOD. She chose FanCom.

    1. I’ve never been to any con besides Cape Argus and that’s exactly as exciting as it sounds.

    2. It’s been ages since I bought a decent graphic novel.

    3. I’m single. Those cosplay girls man.
