Every geek, nerd and fan were rushing to KTPO, Whitefield where Comic Con was happening. To my relief, the crowd was slightly older than last year! There was Cosplay, there was Cool Merch and lots of like minded Comic Freaks.
Whats Great about Comic Con in Bangalore, India
The whole concept of Comic Conference is new to our country. So this is all fresh and exciting to fans of Marvel and DC alike. Also, everyone that come here are really into Storytelling, Marvel and DC movies and comics.
It is a platform to showcase artistic talent in for graphic artists, painters, costumers and maybe even writers.
There are also a few freebies thrown in, like the cheese wafers that tasted like milk powder, and Doritos.
You also get a standard goodie set of a single hard poster and sample comic. This time it was a comic named Saga.
I also bought this super cool, super small Thor figurine meant to be a game piece. Apparently it's not available online. I checked that out and it is, but priced 4x that the orignal price.
There was also this Maruti Swift that was strung up using jigs and fixtures. It was part of this obstacle course display organised by them.
The crowd was really energetic and fun. Great vibes all around and impressive costumes.
The costumes were high in detail and well done.
I even managed to squeeze in a pic between Aquaman and Mira.
Yes, the cameraman was not initially supposed to be in this shot!
What's not so great about Comic Con Bangalore
The Distance! Omg! It was like sailing to a new continent. Plus the Sun was a bit intense. Whitefield is not close to anything!
Also, there could have been more freebies. Afterall we are coming from afar.
At the very least they could hand out cold water to the people attending, with some juice or something.
