Superfans readers, we have the best news ever: Comic Con Cape Town will be held in our beautiful Mother City for one day only, on 2 October 2021!

This highly-anticipated event will feature a series of pop-up activities, including cosplay competitions for professionals, casuals and kids, the extremely popular Comic Art Drink & Draw & Sketch-off competitions, Pop Culture Quiz Sessions and Fandom meetups around Cape Town.

Those ready to socially engage with other Con attendees can look forward to gaming and table top competitions and film watch parties too.

Before Captain America gives us a PSA on being safe, Reed Exhibitions assures us that these pop-up activations at various locations will be held with COVID-19 regulated capacities and protocols in mind.

Leonie, Tendai and I are SUPER excited about this pop-up Comic Con Cape Town day and are already working on our epic costumes (hint: blessed be the fruit!)

A reminder of just how awesome our cosplay outings at a Con are:
