    This year, I'll try to attend as many of these as I possibly can. I've never been to Upcon and Icon, and I am pretty keen to see KinCon.

    Also, Cosmic Comics in JHB are giving away R50 vouchers to people who attend FCBD at their store.
    That's what she said.

    I went to UPCON in my first year, I'm thinking of going this year. Any other takers?

    Glad to see KIN CON is getting a mention - the lady behind it has been putting in a ton of effort.

    I'm going to pop up to Jo'burg to check it out

    Oh cool, I also want to check that out. I saw, that chick is one the MOVE on Facebook with promoting this event. She tells you everything, even like when the music should stop at night. I like that.

    Yeah, which is why this Comicon noob could've taken a page from her book and learned a thing or two. KIN CON has the potential to go somewhere, and is the logical starting point for something to get big. Besides which, she's also a cosplayer, known anime/gaming geek to those of us in the community, so we know that what she would like to see at a mini-con will most likely be the same thing we want to see at a mini-con - at the same time she's not arrogant enough to take it for granted.

    If that's not enough, we already know AnimeWORX is going to be represented there - that seals the deal for me.

    Comicon claimed it was going to be big before having to back off and say that it's probably not, or it's a networking event, or etc etc. Dunno, I've lost track of what he was trying to say.

    Yeah, she has a nice foot in the door and I think she can actually grow this quite nicely, pending the success of her event. I'll maybe go check it out.

    I was wondering the same thing. It went from super-hyped to non-existent in record time. I'm seriously wondering if anyone even rocked up.
