No true super star actors and no new announcements. Two basic ingredients that makes comic con comic con in the rest world.

Unless they solve these I am passing...

Huh, no photo with "celebrities"? It's expensive, but you could've claimed it back, as an work expense. :laugh:

Why Kyalami? Why not Sandton convention centre or the dome?

Not well known enough?
No A list actors?

Probably like most Americans, think we ride elephants around town.

These events should be held somewhere like Nasrec. It's just too crowded.

Looks pretty amazing man. I've been to the MCM Comic Con in London, and that was just so bad, and so expensive. Was a joke in comparison.

I think it was okay. Does anyone know if there was a panel where you could actually see the celebs? Or, was the only way to see them, to pay for a photograph? If that was the only way to see them, then it was a waste getting them there. At some of these events they have panel discussions with the celebs which I think is cool. Paying for a photo is lame.

The organization just wasn't that good though. I don't like the venue, I must be honest. Other conference centres would have been better. Kyalami is too spread out. Plus they didn't have enough food stalls or shade, so you had to queue for 30-60 minutes to get food. Far too long.
