Comic Con Mumbai was held over the weekend on 22 and 23 December at Bombay Exhibition Center, just down the road from Dreamhack which was taking place over the same time period. So it was all one big geek extravaganza. As soon as you entered, there were comic book aficionados lining up for the discounted merch on the stalls to the left. To the right, there was a Maruti Suzuki Swift stuck sideways halfway up a cage on the right. Inside the cage was a timed obstacle course, which people had to navigate as quickly as they could.
If you followed the stalls, you would come to the Arena stage, where all the action was happening. Vivek Goel of Holy Cow entertainment launched a new issue of Caster, as well as The Age of Immortals. Mihir Joshi hosted a session on the dos and don’ts of action figure collecting. In the evening, there was a remembrance for Stan Lee, followed by the highly anticipated cosplay contest. Right next to the Arena stage was the experience zone for Marvel, where the upcoming Captain Marvel movie was being showcased. Fans could also take photos next to life sized statues of Marvel heroes, as well as some props. An MC was giving away spot prizes which consisted of Marvel merch, for fans who could answer questions from the MCU. Further along the circuit were more stalls, which showcased comic books.

Fans could get their comics signed by Japanese artist Sana Takada of Monstress fame, and Will Conrad who has worked as an artist for both Marvel and DC. Hot wheels was celebrating 50 years of the brand, by bringing a life sized hot wheels car to India for the first time. There was a selfie contest for people who posed next to the car. Doritos was also giving away chips to attendees for free, and had some kind of goofy VR dance experience stall.
