This past weekend was a dream come true for many geeks and nerds in Africa with the onslaught of activities at 2 prominent comic conventions on the continent. In Nigeria, the 8th Lagos Comic-Con concluded on a smashing note while in South Africa, the second year of Comic-Con Africa connected the southern African geekdom even more.

While we couldn’t be at any of these great events (our very own Tobi who is Lagos based only managed to attend the last day of Fearless Lagos Comic-Con), other media houses were and they captured Lagos Comic-Con and Comic-Con Africa in their full splendour.

Note, Lagos Comic-Con and Comic-Con Africa are two of the biggest gathering for comics, games, animation and all things geek.

Below, we’ve curated all the scoop on both events for your viewing and reading pleasure. As a bonus, we’ve also included scoops on the maiden editions of Abuja Comic-Con and Accra Animation Film Festival as well as Nairobi Comic-Con.
