Comic Con in Indonesia, now that is awesome! I am not much into this but I like it when Indonesia enjoys these types of conventions. I accidentally went to one when I took my son to San Diego 10 plus years ago. We were staying downtown San Diego for a couple of days and enjoyed the sites of the area. We came across the convention and thus, decided to have fun and see what that was all about.
Yes, I was a big comic guy when I was a kid but was into the “old” comics like Tom and Jerry, Pippin, and a host of other ones. Anyway, this article below caught my attention. Cheers, from Diving Doug
Here is part of the article –
Pop-culture devotees of Jakarta flocked over the weekend to the third installment of Indonesia Comic Con, which was held at the Jakarta Convention Center in Senayan, South Jakarta. The line to enter the event began forming as early as 8 a.m. on the first day, mostly comprising visitors who had purchased their tickets online. At a glance, it looked like a regular exhibition, but upon entering through the main gate, visitors were brought to a different realm.
Among the booths presented were comic booths, selling both Indonesian and international books; an action figure booth decorated like a cage, inviting visitors to use it as background for their photos; the Fightsaber Indonesia community booth that featured international Star Wars lightsaber performances; the Walking Dead Escape Room that was particularly popular among brave souls and zombie fans; an all-about-toys area; the Artists Alley, where visitors could buy artworks from independent artists; the Star Trek booth; and a special area for gaming tournaments.
