Comic Con Africa will have some amazing guests for us all to see, many people are upset as one of the main guests Jason Mamoa from Aquaman and Game of Thrones had to cancel his appearance because of a Broadway show he will be at the same time as Comic Con. Never the less there are other great guests, some of them are:

There will be food to keep you energized throughout the fun-filled day, and no doubt an endless amount for you to do and see. First things first, outfits! Finding the perfect cosplay outfit is a must and if you do a bit of a search you will find an array of choices. Whether you want to go all out or do something chilled, that is up to you, but I am a sucker for dress up so will definitely be going as something cool. So until then, we will check you on Friday where we will be getting our geek on.
