Pop culture enthusiasts get your costumes ready! Comic Con Africa is set to return to the Johannesburg Expo Centre this September.
Comic Con is back
The Ultimate Pop Culture and Gaming Festival in Africa, Comic Con, is heading back to Johannesburg this year. Visitors can get stuck into the latest and best merch, gaming, art, comics, tech, film and food, with celebrity guests, actors, comic book artists, cosplayers and industry insiders.
This is also the first time that South Africa will experience two Comic Cons in one year, after the success of Comic Con Cape Town in April, reports Tourism Update.
Carla Massmann, Show Director of Comic Con Africa, said that they were thrilled to bring Comic Con Africa 2023 to life, especially after the great response they received from Comic Con Cape Town.
“The overwhelming enthusiasm and passion from the fans in Cape Town were a testament to the incredible passion South Africans have for pop culture and gaming. We are committed to creating a world-class experience for attendees, and we can’t wait bring all the communities back together again,” Massman said.
