Carla Massmann, the Show Director of Comic Con Africa, expressed her excitement about the upcoming event. She said, “We are thrilled to bring Comic Con Africa 2023 to life after the incredible response we received for the inaugural Comic Con Cape Town. The overwhelming enthusiasm and passion from the fans in Cape Town were a testament to the incredible passion South Africans have for pop culture and gaming. We are committed to creating a world-class experience for attendees, and we can’t wait to bring all the communities back together again.”

Taking fan feedback to heart, the organisers have ensured a more seamless experience for attendees this year. By reassessing venue capacity and capping daily ticket sales, they aim to eliminate overcrowding and provide a more enjoyable atmosphere for everyone. Additionally, with Comic Con Africa falling over a public holiday weekend, attendees can expect a more even distribution of fans across all four days.

Carla Massmann emphasized the importance of visitor experience, stating, “We take our fan feedback very seriously and have the visitor experience top of mind for Comic Con Africa 2023.”
