Comic Con to woo young adults this time

Super heroes and their rivals accompanied by timeless cartoons loved by all are back in town as the third annual Comic Con India began here on Friday.

The three-day-event at Dilli Haat will showcase 80 participants and several interactive sessions by renowned artists.

It will also have exclusive merchandise of popular books and comics. “I believe that lovers of comics and cartoons can be found in any age group. Having said that, most comic books, graphic novels and games here are for young adults,” said Comic Con India founder Jatin Varma.

“Comics are not exclusive for kids as the increase in dark themes and subjects is appreciated by young adults,” he added.

Original and pristine copies of popular vintage comic series Indrajaal are up for grabs with the oldest edition dating back to 1967. It can be bought for Rs 2,000.

“I have been collecting them for over 25 years and finally decided to sell them,” said Chandra Shekhar Srivastav, who has a bookshop back home in Lucknow.

Indian comics like Angry Maushi, Superkudi and Super Mummy were a rage as well.
“Angry Maushi is the woman that every Indian woman will want to be to fight the evils of society,” said its creator Abhijit Kini from Mumbai.
