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.
Last year saw those prayers answered with a sister show that was called the really Awesome Geeky Expo in the Mother City. Looks like that was a done-in-one deal, as the 2017 rAge Expo in Cape Town has been cancelled.
When it comes to collector's items some like bobbleheads, some like toys, and others like signed memorabilia! Well, guess what, we are giving away two signed posters for the upcoming movie 12 Strong which releases on the 18th of January. Signed by Chris Hemsworth, Michael Pena, Navid Negahban, Rob Riggle, Trevante Rhodes, Nicolai Fuglsig (Director) and Jerry Bruckheimer (Producer) it's a must for any movie fan that wants something touched by celebrity royalty! I'm rather excited about the upcoming movie, released on the 18th of January, as I not only think Hemsworth is a diverse actor but also enjoying war-time movies.
