The 8th edition of Delhi Comic Con returned with a bang, as it once again brought together the universes of comics, movies, anime, television, and gaming for fans of pop-culture. The event at the NSIC Grounds in Okhla here opened on Friday with a special session by Vladimir Furdik, who plays the Night King in the popular American television series Game of Thrones.
The actor interacted with the fans as he shared his thrilling experiences as a stuntman and about his role as the menacing leader of the army of the dead.
"I feel elated to be part of this event where everyone is eagerly warm and nice! I had a wonderful time on my last visit to India and was looking forward to meeting my fans and trying the delicious food again. Needless to say, this beautiful country never disappoints," Furdik said.
The event also saw the launch of a book titled 'Rhyme Fighters' by Indian comic creator Abhijeet Kini.
The book is a series of cartoons, comics, and rhymes dedicated to the unsung heroes everyone comes across on the streets and in their homes every day.
Kini also launched two of his other comics -- 'Sanskarshala' and 'The Dabbawala'.
"When we started out with Comic Con, we had not expected it to reach such a remarkable stature in such a short time," Jatin Varma, founder, Comic Con India, said.
As is the tradition, the Delhi Comic Con, this year too, was filled with fans dressed as their favorite film and comic book characters, from age-old classics as Batman and
Superman to contemporary characters from new franchises and anime.
The pop-culture gala will come to an end on December 9.
