The big Comic Con Africa 2019 gallery of awesomeness!

57 second read

Two years in and Comic Con Africa may just have established itself as the best mainstream celebration of pop culture that you can find on the continent. While we have thoughts to share on the event (coming later this week!), we’ve also got plenty of photos thanks to none other than our ace shutterbug Glenn Kisela! With a little extra from yours truly, Noelle and Tracy for good measure.

The event was massive, the attractions were many and the cosplay game was on point! If you were looking to have your weekend need for video games, comic books and listening to William Shatner spin a few amazing tales while on stage, then Comic Con Africa must have felt like home for those four glorious days that it was active for.

Don’t just take my word for it though, feel free to scroll through the gallery and marvel at what you experienced and lament at what you missed out on if you didn’t run into us there!

      That’s a real shame, what did they serve? And what were the general prices?

        Because its at gallagher, they hold the rights for the food and drinks.

        An hour in the line for a R70 cheese burger (only), which was rushed and under cooked.

          So in line with other South African convention centers.

          Sounds like the prices at rAge, the LAN food caterers usually have these prices because you can’t bring food it, if memory serves me right a 2L coke cost something like R35 and a burger R65 at rAge.

            Issue is last years food was good, still extremely expensive but there was so many food trucks you had a choice of what you want, this year just expensive and terrible, they even had KFC as a main sponsor and they could not sell KFC

    If they one day get the Critical Role crew, or have something/someone else I stalk, then I might go. Or if I get into proper cosplay shape. But glad it was a success for those who went

    I’m just glad Shatner enjoyed it, which means he might be back in 2020, and that will inspire the rest of Hollyweird to make the trip across the Atlantic.

      Honestly, I think we’d all be happy with just the Shat-man. He’s a hoot! Forget about those other dudes.
