It’s time to get your costumes ready for the next level of Thailand second coming comic con.
As the previous premises at Siam Paragon were too small last year this year’s BITEC Arena will offer enough space for all comic enthusiasts.
That means more space to wait small eternities in long lines for Aussies with an Elf rogue princess, Cyberdyne Systems T-950 or Targaryen pretender to the Iron Throne.
Mostly a symbiotic marketing exercise between corporate media and otaku, last year’s con featured booths from both major American movie studios to obscure online game developers, cosplay contests and some discussion panels.
This year the con will coincide with Anime Festival Asia Thailand, which runs April 30 to May 3 at BITEC.
