All the madness @ComicConIndia Bangalore!
Wow! My first ComicCon and definitely not the last! Yesâ¦ as you can see it was rushy, pushy, crowded and went beyond my expectations by far, but you know whatâ¦ I actually loved that buzz! So many new artists, so many colors, so many charactersâ¦ it not only took me back to my childhood, but [...]
Wow! My first ComicCon and definitely not the last! Yesâ¦ as you can see it was rushy, pushy, crowded and went beyond my expectations by far, but you know whatâ¦ I actually loved that buzz! So many new artists, so many colors, so many charactersâ¦ it not only took me back to my childhood, but it made my childhood look even better!

Here are my four favorite single-pose-pics, lets call them âCosplayersâ! An amazing two-faceâ¦ he looks even better than the Tommy-Lee-Jones version! Check out that expression on Wednesday Adams faceâ¦ priceless! I never even knew that there was a Thor Girl; just look how heavenly pretty she is and she makes the Mjollnir look like a wandâ¦ although Thor Girl has a golden hammer of her own! In the fourth pic, try spotting the Iron Man in the Iron Manâ¦ lol!
For the cutest Cosplayers, runner up for me, is the not-so-smiley Darth Maul and the best one: a cuddly-little-spideyâ¦ come here you!

The ComicCon Express began in the moderate cold and wonderful weather of Bangalore in an indoor stadium. Although it was more crowded than I had expected, the atmosphere within the stadium was quite pleasant. There were stalls and showcases, loads of themâ¦ turn your head around and there are more! Phewâ¦ yep, it was tiring!
There was a special gallery for the one and only Mario Miranda. Then there was Prithvi Comics, Abhijeet Kini, The Wise Fool Of Baghdad Sufi Comics, a host of Indian Mythology Comics especially the prominence for a graphic and royal Lord Shiva. I missed the launch of Steve Jobs: Genius By Design, but Iâll be checking this one out soon, especially after the iPhone5 release (although it has failed to impress me :P).
Anywaysâ¦ my best comic stalls that caught my attention was Alicia SouzaÂ and The Tap, the main reason being I love simplicity. I just fell in love with Alicia Souzaâs visiting cards and the entire theme that was running in her work was captivating and soothingâ¦ not to mention adorable! The Tap has a crude style, but the merchandise they displayed was just simple and nice! Since I own a stick figure comic myself at Marioâs PJ TimeÂ I really loved the simpllicity with The Tap. Uhâ¦ no, we at MPJTime did not campaign or publicize this time; come onâ¦ weâre not even a year old on the web.
As for the merchandise, the lesser I say the better. The Wolver-Anna were an instant sell-out! Hysteria Stores sold out the most wanted toys like Sheldon, Batman and Bane bobble heads, and I got my hands on the âlast pieceâ of Dexter Morgan! Heheâ¦ figure of speech! I wish there was no crowd or bigger space so that one could gently enjoy all the books and merchandise and decide their purchases comfortably.
Canât wait for the Mumbai Film and Comic Con in October and MPJTimeÂ will most probably market itself thereâ¦ hehe! I leave you with the rarest pics ever! Velma with Ghost Rider and the Scream Guy and the rarest of the rareâ¦ Me, Myself and Mario!
