The Lagos Comic-Con is a yearly pop culture event organised by Ayodele Elegba and Austine Osas of Spoof Animation, and this year’s edition is scheduled to take place on the 17th of September, 2016 at NECA House, Alausa, Ikeja. It all started in 2012 and they have come a long way, nicking partnerships with companies like Disney/Pixar, UR4Africa Programme, Tite Boy Game Entertainment, Footworks, Violet Nirvana, TM-Cube Global and Nolly.com along the way.
This year’s edition is themed, “Creative Skills as a Tool for Economic Diversification,” and it will feature panels, workshops, master classes and a central stage for exhibition and sales. Other features include competitions, movie screenings and space for co-working, networking and interactive installations.
Last year, about 3000 people came through and it was a ton of fun. There was anime exchange, cosplay, Nigerian comic books…everything. They’ve promised this year’s will be better, so even though it’s still a few months away, just save the date, yeah?
