First established in 2016, the comic convention celebrates its fourth year by welcoming cosplayers, vendors, panellists, and more at the Cape Town International Convention Centre this weekend.
Featured guests included legendary comic book artists Brian Stelfreeze and John Higgins, industry veterans who have worked on Batman, Black Panther, and Watchmen; Japanese illustrator Sana Takeda who is behind the Monstress comic series; and Sam Humphries, writer of DC Comics’ Harley Quinn.
Among these guests was South Africa’s top cartoonist Zapiro, the only editorial cartoonist in the room.
“It’s fantastic being at FanCon. There’s so much going on with illustrations and everything related to comics,” he said.
