Cape Town – South Africa is getting its very own Comic Con to be held in Cape Town this year, reports Mygaming. The event is modelled on the massive annual Comic Con popular culture events held around the US.

The inaugural Comic Con SA is set to take place from 26-28 April at the "It's a house" venue in Green Point, Cape Town.

According to one of the event organisers, Tlou Ramatlhodi, Comic Con SA will feature role-playing, card game championships, video game tournaments, a sketch competition, cosplay (costume play), free comics, local comic book artists, comic book stores, drinks, food "and general @#$%^%#$ awesomeness".

The local organisers acquired the rights to use the Comic Con name and host the event in South Africa.

Marvel South Africa are on board as sponsors, says Ramatlhodi, and they will be promoting their Marvel Superheroes magazine at the event alongside Outer Limits comic vendors and international DJ Vinyl Junkie.

According to Ramatlhodi, organisers are in talks with local gaming distributors to have the latest games at the show and "intend to bring a true Comic Con experience to South Africa".

"We appreciate the amount of love we are getting from a lot of our fans; the energy is manic, people are geared for this," Ramatlhodi told Mygaming.
