Comic Con India, in collaboration with DC Comics, will be holding a Batman celebration night at Vapour on Thursday, 23 July.
The event will feature cosplays, trivia, games and awesome music. If you are not a fan of Batman from the comics, but only know of the Arkham Knight via his epic movies only, fear not, it is a night for you too, guarantees Jatin Varma, the founder of Comic Con India.
"Batman is the most popular superhero in India. We had to celebrate his birthday in a big way, and got in touch with DC Entertainment India for a big celebration," says Varma.
Varma's success with Comic Con, he claims was a hit-or-miss situation, where he really wanted to bring Comic Con to India, but had no background in event management or exhibition organisation skills. However, being a "fanboy" clearly was a plus in his endeavour.
Along with being the founder of Comic Con in India, Varma is also the publisher and editor of "Random Magazine", a humour series that draws from sarcastic material from India. From UBiMa and Col. Chikara, Varma has facilitated the birth of many Indian superheroes as well.
It would be great to see desi characters at a global event. But since they are only 3-4 years old, they have not had an impact on the reading public like Superman or Batman. However, if Varma has his way, then more phenomenal comic book characters would emerge from the Indian subcontinent and we could probably have an event in the future, predominantly filled with desi characters.
Comic Con India consistently holds conventions for popular comic books, TV series and movies. To get updates regarding the same, follow them on twitter (@ComicConIndia).
