the organisers say:
each edition of the annual comic con involves months of hard work. over the last four years, we have been witness to the gradual rise in the number of comics creators and publishers in our country.
a few years ago, to avoid the costly expense of travelling abroad to a comic convention, a group of relatively young people in delhi decided to create one on their own home city. with that simple mission, comic con india was formed and has now grown to multiple events across the country.
