The 1st ever action packed Comic Con Express Hyderabad organized by Comic Con India received tremendous response from fans from all age groups over the weekend of September 21-22 at HITEX Exhibition Center, Hyderabad.


The event had stalls exhibiting, promoting and selling comics, graphic novels, merchandise etc. There were Workshops and Interactive Sessions every hour at the dedicated stage area with Exclusive launches of Comics titles, book signings, competitions and Cosplay(Costume contest).


From Batman to superman to famous manga characters, we witnessed all the superheroes and comic characters come alive as fans dressed in their favorite costumes!! They not only received attention from the audiences, but also interesting prizes from Comic Con India. MTV VJ Jose was there too on Saturday as he judged the show. Each day, winners got chosen from five categories. Both days, One lucky winner out of the chosen 5 got to WIN a GOLDEN TICKET to Goa!!



“Hyderabad’s creativity was on display with many local artists showcasing their work and products along with the comics fraternity that came from different parts of our country. We try to bring Retailers, Publishers, Merchandisers, Writers, Artists, Illustrators etc. from within the Comic, Animation, Gaming, Movies/studios and related communities together and give them a common platform. We are overwhelmed by the response we have been getting at all Indian Comics Cons. We were pleased to come to the city of Nizams with our traveling version of national Indian comics convention - ‘Comic Con Express Hyderabad’. The love and affection shown by the fans is our greatest reward,” said, Jatin Varma, Founder, Comic Con India.


The two day fest saw many interactive and playful sessions, but the one session that all hyderabadis loved was the Session with the Creators of The Hyderabad Graphic Novel, as they took everyone on a journey to the mythical past of their city. A session on The Magical Evolution of Tinkle Studios by Amar Chitra Katha, followed by a fun quiz was equally entertaining and engrossing.


All the budding artists and publishers in the city got to learn a lot from sessions like Indie Publishers, which discussed its gradual rise in India and session with Harsho Mohan Chattoraj which illustrated different aspects of making comics.
