Remember how, a little while ago, we said that we were giving away five sets of double tickets to this year's Comic Con Africa? Remember how, a little while ago, we said that you had to be in Johannesburg on a specific day in order to enter?

What, you might ask, would compel us to want to work on a long weekend? A little something known as Comic Con Africa 2019, which will be taking place from 21 September all the way through to 24 September.
