Comic-con is the largest comic book and pop-culture convention which is coming to Delhi this weekend (the 15-17) for its 7th edition, straight from the producers of New York Comic Con with a promise to be bigger and better. After successful shows in Pune, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore Delhi commits to be Jam-packed with comics, movies, television, gaming and cosplay. This festival has the most engaged and passionate fans.
Whoever you are, wherever you are from, whether you read comics or follow the series online, whether you like to read the book or watch the movie or series, whether you like manga or the anime. If pop culture is your escape from the world, your pilgrimage then this is the place for you.
A Jedi or a Sith. An Autobot or a Decepticon. The Tick or the Man. The brilliant yet bizarre Dr. Sheldon Cooper or the high functioning sociopath Sherlock Holmes. Walter White or Dexter Morgan. Light or Dark. Who are you? Where do you stand? Are you S.H.I.E.L.D. or HYDRA? Are you in the ranks of the Green Lantern Corps or the Justice League, the Defenders or the Inhumans, the Suicide Squad or the Teen Titans. Are you from the ranks of the wizarding community or are you a supernatural being? Are you an Avenger or a X-men? You will fit just right in because that is exactly how many experiences and events and exhibitions and opportunities in Comic Con.
