Usually, Leonie and I would be frantically packing in our costumes, having that must-have Spur waffle at the airport and taking last minute super photos before jetting off to Comic Con Africa in Joburg for a few days.

In this, the time of COVID, we, along with Tendai, will be getting our geek on virtually from our couches with #ComicConAfricaOnline from 24 to 27 September 2020!

A reminder of how we rocked that cosplay life at the Con last year:

This year, we’re in for four days of excellent entertainment with virtual celebrity artists and series stars, online quizzes, sketching sessions, cosplay competitions and yes, even an online karaoke session.

You can register for free here and don’t forget to download the Comic Con Africa 2020 app from the Play store to get your programme, order your merchandise and more.

I was already overexcited with the announcement of my favourite Power Ranger being a Con virtual guest but this morning, the organisers dropped this magical announcement:

Holy Umber, this is going to be FUN!

I’ll be pitting my comicbook fangirl smarts and fast fingers against other Con attendees at the Wonder Woman , Marvel and Pop Culture online quizzes before gushing over The Magicians, the Green Power Ranger and Umbrella Academy’s Number One:

In between checking out Will Slaney’s webslinging Spiderman drawing skills, I will be geeking out with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Tala Ashe and Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger’s Aubrey Joseph:

#ComicConAfricaOnline is going to be SUPER awesome! See you online!
