If you might be missing out on the first day which consists mostly of workshops, panels, and all that, you don’t want to miss the next day’s event, a trade-fair styled event of exhibitions.

Venue is at NECA House, Alausa, Ikeja.Lagos Comic Con1

Last year had about 3,000 people in attendance. You don’t want to be left out this year, do you?

When you attend the event, you’ll probably see your colleague or someone you know dressed as superman.

Don’t panic. Its how you know you’re at the right place.

Someone is going to say hi and their face is going to be painted like this guy.

Nope. Don’t run. Say hi and take a selfie with them. The dress-ups are called cosplay.

If by now you think this is a great idea, you’ll likely find a facepaint stand somewhere. Don’t be shy.



It will be fun. Without a doubt.

You’ll find book stands all over the place. You won’t find newspapers and all that boring stuff. You’ll find comics, lots of them.

In the end, if you’re looking for a magical experience on the 17th of September in Lagos, then you should be at Comic-Con.
