Some months ago after encouragement from a friend, we applied to participate to promote Sufi Comics at Comic Con International San Diego – the mother of all Comic Conventions and one of the biggest in the world. When I got in touch with them, they told me there’s a 3 year waiting list. Hearing this we didn’t have any expectations to get in. Nonetheless they asked us to fill in the application form, in case there’s space, we may get a chance.
This is a big moment for us, as it’s the first time an Comic book publisher from India has an exhibit space at Comic Con San Diego. I hope this is a beginning for more Indians to participate at International Comic Conventions around the world.
Please share the news with your friends. If you’re there in town during this time, we look forward to meet you there, at booth #5531.
For the first time the book 40 Sufi Comics in Color will be avaiable for Sale. We’ll also be previewing pages from our upcoming book “Sufi Comics: The Wise Fool of Baghdad.”
