The world-renowned annual multi-genre entertainment and comic convention, Comic Con is ready to be held for the first time in Jakarta this September 25 – 27, 2015. Taking place at JIExpo Kemayoran – Jakarta, Jakarta Comic Con promises a pop culture phenomenon for Indonesian fans.
Organisers of the first-ever Jakarta Comic Con are the team behind the phenomenally successful Bangkok events in 2014 and this year, which featured major Hollywood movie studios, TV networks, local Thai comic book producers, toys, collectibles, cosplay competitions and more. After attracting 65,000 fans to the first Bangkok Comic Con last year and growing to 76,000 this year, they are now ready to bring all the fun and excitement to Indonesian fans.
The original comic con was held as the Golden State Comic Book Convention in 1970 by a group of San Diegans, which included Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger, and Mike Towry; later, it was called the “San Diego Comic Book Convention.” The name, as given on its website, is Comic-Con International: San Diego; but it is commonly known simply as Comic-Con or the San Diego Comic-Con or “SDCC”.
Similar to San Diego’s and Bangkok’s, Jakarta Comic Con will feature various pop culture attractions; from the best in movies and TV series, to animation, comics, cartoons, toys, video games, collectibles, live stage activities, and much, much more.
Jakarta Comic Con will join with AFA Indonesia – the biggest Anime event outside Japan – creating a massive event appealing across all ages and all demographics. The event will be held at the JIExpo Kemayoran – Jakarta, on the same date as AFAID15 – 25, 26 and 27 of September 2015, Jakarta Comic Con will become The Ultimate Pop Culture Experience for all Indonesian fans.
