The term ‘Con‘ comes from the word ‘fan convention‘ which relates Batman-Joker-In-Loveto any event in which fans of a particular film, television series, comic book, actor, or an entire genre of entertainment gather together and actively participate in it.

So ‘Comic Con‘ essentially means a fan convention of anything and everything related to comics!

Being a popular world event since the 1970s (originated in San Diego), in 2009 Comic Con Express (the first of its kind in India) was held in Mumbai, the traveling version of the Annual Indian

Then, in 2011 Twenty Onwards Media organized Comic Con in New Delhi, and since then, every year the popularity of this event is growing fast.
