1st ever Comic Con Express Hyderabad was a huge hit amongst comics lovers!!!
Hyderabad: The 1st ever action packed Comic Con Express Hyderabad organized by Comic Con India received tremendous response from fans from all age groups over the weekend of September 21-22 at HITEX Exhibition Center, Hyderabad.

The event had stalls exhibiting, promoting and selling comics, graphic novels, merchandise etc. There were Workshops and Interactive Sessions every hour at the dedicated stage area with Exclusive launches of Comics titles, book signings, competitions and Cosplay(Costume contest).

From Batman to superman to famous manga characters, we witnessed all the superheroes and comic characters come alive as fans dressed in their favorite costumes!! They not only received attention from the audiences, but also interesting prizes from Comic Con India. MTV VJ Jose was there too on Saturday as he judged the show. Each day, winners got chosen from five categories. Both days, One lucky winner out of the chosen 5 got to WIN a GOLDEN TICKET to Goa!!

“Hyderabad’s creativity was on display with many local artists showcasing their work and products along with the comics fraternity that came from different parts of our country. We try to bring Retailers, Publishers, Merchandisers, Writers, Artists, Illustrators etc. from within the Comic, Animation, Gaming, Movies/studios and related communities together and give them a common platform. We are overwhelmed by the response we have been getting at all Indian Comics Cons. We were pleased to come to the city of Nizams with our traveling version of national Indian comics convention - ‘Comic Con Express Hyderabad’. The love and affection shown by the fans is our greatest reward,” said, Jatin Varma, Founder, Comic Con India.

The two day fest saw many interactive and playful sessions, but the one session that all hyderabadis loved was the Session with the Creators of The Hyderabad Graphic Novel, as they took everyone on a journey to the mythical past of their city. A session on The Magical Evolution of Tinkle Studios by Amar Chitra Katha, followed by a fun quiz was equally entertaining and engrossing.

All the budding artists and publishers in the city got to learn a lot from sessions like Indie Publishers, which discussed its gradual rise in India and session with Harsho Mohan Chattoraj which illustrated different aspects of making comics.

Comic Con Express Hyderabad saw the launch of over 10 titles at this convention. One of India's best comic book publishers Campfire publishing, released their graphic novelization of “Pride & Prejudice.” Also, the famous graphic novel titled “ODAYAN” written by Suhas Sundar, which went out of Print, was re-launched by Pop Culture Publishing in partnership with Level 10 comics. Holy Cow Publishing launched their finale comic to their best selling series, “Ravanayan Finale” & Pop Culture publishing launched “Satya Police” - A graphic novel by the the winners of the first Comic Con India grant given at 1st Comic Con India Awards!

With all the merchandise madness at the convention, Amar Chitra Katha for the first time ever brought out merchandise around its popular comics and characters, exclusively at Hyderabad.

If that was not enough, there were some exciting giveaways which included 5000 exclusive Comic Con Express Hyderabad 2013 Limited Edition Swag Bags by Myntra.com, made only for the event to be given to the chosen few!

Some of the leading participants in the Comic Con Express Hyderabad were Amar Chitra Katha, Campfire Graphic Novels, Scholastic India, DC Comics by Random House, HarperCollins India, Pop Culture Publishing, Holy Cow Entertainment, Mario Miranda Gallery, Level 10 Studios, Chariot Comics, Myntra.com and Green Gold Animation - Chotta Bheem Comics.

Never did the comics’ community in India have a platform where they could meet and interact. Now they do!
