Comic Con Bangalore 2013 -- Cinebook A Special View


Bangaluru Comic Con 2013 happened on June 1st and 2nd in Koramangala Indoor Stadium... 




Many of the wonderfull publishers were missing like Vimanika and Rovolt to be specific, but the presence of Cinebook took care of it a bit.


Other than that It was totally a merchandise expo with lots of hunger spots and less of good quality comics..


The Cos play was as usual, All characters of Marvel and DC dominates the scene... while many people doesn't event know Franco-Belgian Comic Heros...

My first day went in total joy with friends and I felt like living my dream a bit, would like to visit GibiCon once I get proficient in Italian.


with the Team...


A few snaps @ Lion








The name has to be said -- CAMPFIRE -- man you people at campfire rock... All Illustrated Classics at an International excellence by Indian Artists... I salute them.. bought a few of the books. I bought a few from them..






A small review about Campfire by Jason on his recent visit to their teams office...



Cant forget the warmth of our bangalore friends Periar, Suresh Natarajan, Suresh, Srini, Giri and of course all our friends who were there..


One can never missout Kaleel and his team...


Kaleel with my pard Palanivel who missedout to be Carson besides me on first day as he came only on the second...


with Giri at last...


Second day of comic con is much more fun filled with my friend Palanivel and a small Interview with Jerome the official translator for Cinebook publications.




A news review on the cinebook stall in Comic Con -- taking it international...


We welcomed him to tamil stall and he became stunned seeing all our Blueberry, Wayne, Largo, Lucky, Tex and Diabolic issues for such a small price tag.. 

I thought of gifting him something as translation from French to English without losing things out is a himalayan task too and so bought Villanukor Veli and gifted him...


He was very friendly and would love to be in touch, nice time with you Jerome I would never forget it...

would be soon doing a post on his exclusive interview... and the questions which our friends Palani and Prasana asked him...

A few persons I miss at Comic Con -- Johny, Lucky, Ragulan, Karan as Vimanika didnt come and ofcourse the team of Rovolt.

It was fully fun filled with my fantacies coming true with Tex in Cos Play...

cant forget the freinds Antony and Michael, who had a comic editing software stall in comic con.

Thanks Folks Its a freakout weekend all because of you, without which It would be another normal expo kinda as Comic Con is losing its charm and becoming more a cosplay centre...

  2. Cool Shri, It was pleasure to meet you at the Comic-Con :). your Tex outfit was simply rocking that really shows your Passion&Love for comics. great
    I too had a word with Jerome, I was just telling him about my concern regarding high price, he replied me, if there is a direct sales in India then the price that we are expecting is possible but none of the dealers are ready to take up the opportunity. Perhaps it may possible in near future, If any of the dealers says ok. Let's hope for the best.
