The day has finally arrived. Comic Con Africa has started. Geeks from across the country have dusted off their superhero capes and gathered at Kyalami International Convention Centre, Johannesburg. An African first, the international convention hosts one of the biggest pop culture events of the year, assembling celebrities, cosplayers, gamers and fanatics over three days to celebrate all things geek.
Despite a few recent disappoints, which include the cancellation of Jason Momoa and Anthony Mackie’s appearances at the con, the exhibition has drawn a large crowd that was willing to brave long ques early this morning to catch a glimpse of their favourite toys, artwork, games and superheroes.
Below are a few photographs from Day 1 at Comic Con Africa 2018:
