The Stakes Are Raised Higher For Mumbai Comic Con 2017!

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

Attention! Geeks, and nerds. The most celebrated event - Mumbai Comic-Con is nearing. And the awe-inspiring pre-events organized by Comic Con India team have added to the excitement for the main event on 11-12th Nov 2017. Last weekend, 23rd Sept 2017, we witnessed one such astonishing pre-event which celebrated the iconic Cape Crusader - The Batman!

Being a superhero enthusiasts, we just jumped on this opportunity to celebrate the Dark Knight. That's not all, it was also the 25th anniversary of Harley Quinn.

As the event theme was centered around Batman, many Batman fans dressed-up wearing Batman T-shirts as a mark of celebrating their favourite superhero. They exhibited their Bat-gyaan by participating in special Bat-quiz contest. The winners were rewarded with supercool DC merchandises. Customized Bat-drinks and the amazing music was enough to make the crowd go wild.

All said and done but the real star of the show were the cosplayers who cosplayed as their favourite DC comic, cartoon and live action movies characters. Cosplay is about showing your love and affection for a character literally on your body, Here are some who exactly exhibited that to perfection.

Here are some best cosplays from the day:
