Comic Con Express is the travelling version of the Indian Comic Con. The first edition was held in Delhi last year and this year it will be held in Mumbai on the weekend. There will be a hell lot of comics launched including the Ra.One comic and Zombie Talkies(which is the inspiration for the forthcoming movie Rock The Shaadi). Old favourites like Diamond Comic and Amar Chitra Katha will be present along with a host of new publications which feature comics like Ravanayan, Retrogade and Shiva ( all with a twist of course). In addition there are contests, workshops etc. All you comic book fans get yourself there pronto.

I am personally looking forward to check out 1951 by Mario Miranda (he’s the guy who drew the murals at Mondegar)
