Indian Comic Con 2014 Travelog: Epilogue
The day after the hustle and bustle of Indian Comic Con, Mark Waid and Christy Blanch invited me to join them with their new friend Sumit Ray, who they met at the Indian Comic Con. He had offered to show them around and were taking him up on the offer. What followed was a completely unscripted experience that was more than I could’ve hoped for.
After a small stop to pick up more friends Aakshat Sinha & Bhanu Pratap we wound down the busy highways of Delhi until we left the main city behind.
We eventually made it to a suburb on the outskirts of another state in India and arrived at our destination - the headquarters of World Comics Network. It was a studio/apartment where cartoonist & founder Sharad Sharma lived and worked. The studio/apartment was equal parts workspace, comics museum, and home.
Soon, other people started to arrive, Shirkant Sablania, Kailash Iyer, Akshata Udiaver and more, all artists and writers that help Sharad with the World Comics Network. Then over tea they started to tell us all about where their organization has been and what they’ve done.
The World Comics Network has gone to conflict areas throughout the Middle East, Southeast Asia, South America, even the Antarctic, to teach people (some who have never read a comic) to create comics of their lives and experiences. Sharad and his team hold workshops and teach people that comics can be a way to communicate and voice the tragic, infuriating, and sometimes heartfelt experiences that people in these conflict regions have lived. And once created, these comics are printed and xeroxed to be placed on street posts, public walls, trees and anywhere else they can be seen. All in the hopes of sharing these stories with as many people as possible. The World Comics Network also collects some of these stories to print in a newspaper format to share even further through self distribution. We were told that some of comics produced have also gone on to be used as tools for advocacy, literacy, and even as ways to disseminate information for health organizations abroad.
Once we finished our discussion, it was time to eat and we were surprised with a home cooked Indian meal prepared by some of the artists and writers there. Needless to say it was absolutely delicious. The rest of our time we just talked about comics and they showed us some of the works the World Comics Network has produced.
And of course no Mark Waid visit can end with out a bit of signing and autographing that Mark was gracious enough to oblige.
The motto of the World Comics Network is “Comics Power!” which takes on many different meanings in the context of their organization. Power to share stories and ideas. Power to bring people of different backgrounds together. Power for change. Sharad and his team believe that comics do all these things and after seeing first hand how it brought all of us together to share ideas, hopes and even a meal I walked away believing in Comics Power.

Indian Comic Con 2014 Travelog: Day 2
Today’s Indian Comic Con started with a great surprise as one of the show runners took me and a couple of other exhibitors to visit India Gate and the Indian House of Parliament!
After a quick jaunt as 100% tourists we ran back to the convention center where awesome helpers Suriya & Shaltki helped me set up and prepare the huge number of attendees that would arrive that day. Today I got to talk to a number of Indian comiXology fans that were all super excited we were at the show and made sure to find us to tell us how much they loved and appreciated comiXology.
Right afterwards I joined thrillbent's Mark Waid for a discussion on digital comics and the future of digital publishing. Which got a good amount of attention from independent Indian comics creators looking to reach global audiences (comiXology Submit anyone?). But yeah, that’s me on stage in India next to Mark, nbd.
And in the end cosplay was huge once again with such great costumes as Lady Thor & Lady Loki, an awesome Gambit comiXology fan, and even the Powerpuff Girls. Seriously some of these people couldn’t walk a foot without being bombarded with photo requests.
Tomorrow’s “Family Day” at Indian Comic Con which I’ve been told is the busiest day of their convention! Will report again tomorrow!

Indian Comic Con 2014 Travelog: Day 1
Indian Comic Con 2014 kicked off today and rather than report with regular old photos thought’d I’d spice it up a bit and make some IRL comic book panels to frame today’s events!
Plenty of people showed up excited to visit the guests like V for Vendetta's David Lloyd and Daredevil's Mark Waid as well as check out all of cool comics and cosplay at the show.
Awesome booth workers Shaltki & Suriya assisted at the booth and helped me understand what’s popular in terms of superhero and comics in India. Apparently Iron Man is huuuge!
Equally huge at Indian Comic Con was cosplay - as the cosplay contest was the biggest draw of the day with lots of neat costumes like Wolverine, Maleficent, Female Joker from The Dark Knight Movie and more. We even got visited by the world eater himself GALACTUS!
Lots of fun and plenty of excited fans for Day 1 with Day 2 looking to be even crazier! More to come tomorrow!
