The very first Comic Con Africa is taking place right now, from 14-16 September, at the Kyalami Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
This three-day festival celebrates sci-fi and fantasy films, series, books, games and cosplay – with big stars including Ragnar aka Travis Fimmel from Vikings and an interactive TARDIS display for Doctor Who fans. Whovians and new fans from across the continent can come to Johannesburg and celebrate the return of one of the BBC’s most successful franchises with an immersive TARDIS experience, ahead of the launch of the all-new season starring award-winning actress Jodie Whittaker on Showmax next month. (Seasons 9 and 10 are available right now.)
Other actors making appearances at the event include:
- Demore Barnes ( Supernatural, Hannibal, American Gods and The Flash)
