The main and biggest attraction of this year’s Comic Con was undoubtedly the International guests like Mark Waid, David Lloyd, John Layman and the twins Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba who were also present in sessions for all three days and were overwhelmed by the crowd.

Unlike previous years, cosplayers were more professional and most of them had really worked hard. Although they faced a lot of problems walking around, especially the female cosplayers who were bothered by unsocial elements present in the crowd but apart from that there were some top notch cosplayers who really rocked on all three days.

Comic Con this year awarded Pran, the legendary creator of Diamond Comics, with Lifetime achievement award for his contribution in world of Indian Comics.

While comic con was a well managed even the misbehaving and arrogant crowd of Delhi was as usual at its worst, female cosplayers complained about being eve teased and so did normal non-cosplaying women. The unruly crowd even after continuously asked politely kept touching the props and even broke a few of them.

Comic Con India might be over but it promised to return with next year in a bigger and better way. Till then happy comicbookranting 😀
