This weekend

Jingle bells, jingle bells
jingle all the way!

Well, if the song, verse and rhythm seem slightly out of place, blame it on my nerves. I am literally shivering with excitement. And, honestly speaking, which comic lover wouldn’t be, at the prospect of meeting her childhood heroes in their full avatar, regally continuing the magic they weaved years ago, through unobtrusive colorful comic strips, indulging in harmless jokes and guileless antics!

We, Delhi book lovers are indeed a lucky lot, as the first week of Feb 2013 is turning out to be more and more stirring. With rains peppering city weather, with just the right flavor of chill, a full week of Book Fair at Exhibition Ground was giving me goosebumps.

But, now there is another windfall in the offing, as the 3rd Annual Comic Convention will be flagged-off this Thursday on 7th Feb, by honoring and felicitating the best Indian Comics and Comics Creators of 2012 with 2nd Annual Comic Con India Awards.

And, the real treat would begin on 8 Feb at 11 a.m. in the gigantic grounds of Dilli Haat, near INA. The unique convention, which brings together publishers and fans of comics and graphic novels would continue till 10 Feb. And, to add more chutzpah, there is hardly any entry fees other than the mandatory Dilli Haat tickets.

As has been the tradition in the earlier years, there would be exclusive book launches, authors interviews, and exciting contests including Cosplay, where participants dress up as their favorite character.

With all the fun elements in place, I hope, 3rd Annual Comic Con would be even more impressive this time. Gear up for the fun ahead!
