Comic aficionados have a weekend treat in store. They can spend this weekend shopping for comics, strut their stuff at the costume contest, and witness comic history being made as new titles are being launched.

Being held at the Koramangala stadium, the first annual Bangalore comics convention will see a large collection of comics under one roof. The organisers promise that apart from titles that are hard to find, you’ll also get an opportunity to meet many of the creative minds behind these comics.

On the itinerary is Cosplay, a costume contest that will judge in five categories: comic book/graphic novel, animated series/movie, manga/anime, sci-fi/fantasy and gaming.

The event will also see the launch of 10 new titles. The event draws participation from international comic players, including Cinebook (UK), Dark Horse Comics (U.S.).
