South Africa’s first Comic Con event kicked off at Kyalami Race Track and Convention Centre this morning, and there were plenty of punters waiting as the gates opened at 9am. We braved the traffic and got there early so we could snap a few pics of proceedings and get you excited… in the unlikely event you aren’t already.[embedyt]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SFtBv-Z1rA[/embedyt]
As we mentioned yesterday, the event is completely sold out, so if you haven’t got a ticket, showing up is only going to see you turned away. For those of you planning to come, we’re sure we don’t need to tell you all of the reasons you have to look forward to it — like exclusive Funkos and other merchandise, autograph sessions with famous faces, panel discussions on the business side of gaming and geekery, cosplay contests and far too many things clamouring for your cash — but we thought we’d whet your appetite anyway.
