Unlike the complete event, Comic Con Express is a sort of mini-comic con that will feature more local artists and publishers and allow fans to get a feel of what the New Delhi-based Comic Con India is like (read our reports on Comic Con India here). This year’s event has moved to Bangalore and will be held on September 8 and 9 at the Kormangala Stadium in Bangalore.
Comic Con Express is the traveling version of the Indian Comic Con, the annual Comics Convention at Delhi. Comic Con Express was started with the aim of taking Comic Con to cities throughout India to support and boost the comics industry by increasing local interaction and participation.
Our prime motive is to bolster the nascent comic culture throughout India, by taking the best the Indian comics industry has to offer to people who would otherwise never get a chance to have the Comic Con experience.
Comic Con Express also seeks to promote local artists and writers from various cities, by giving them an opportunity to interact with established artists, writers and publishers and a space to bring their work to the attention of people from the industry.
