The event, which was on a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be celebrating its 10th year in India. Keeping this in mind, the organisers are working extra hard to ensure that the three days are filled with fun and festivities for all visitors. From celebrity guests to some of the best merchandise and experiences that you’ll cherish, the on-ground event will offer it all for visitors.

Not only Indian, Delhi Comic Con will also feature some of the best international artists. Some of artists you can expect to see here are Rick Leonardi, Abhijeet Kini, Prasad Bhat, Brown Paperbag Comics, Bakarmax, Indusverse Comics, Meta Desi and Holy Cow Entertainment, among others. One of the most exciting parts of this year’s Comic Con is having Rick Leonardi on board, who began his career working for Marvel Comics, in the title Thor.
