Episode 64: FanCon Geekery with Nizar Abrahams!

Reader's Den Comic Shop in Cape Town has been building up their Free Comic Book Day activities for a number of years, becoming an event that draws people from across the country. This year, Nizar Abrahams and the Reader's Den team have decided to take things to another level with the inaugural FanCon Comic Convention.

With a lineup including Jason Aaron, Jamie McKelvie and many more, FanCon is going to be a massive event for comic and pop culture fans in South Africa. We chatted to Nizar about the road to FanCon: from falling in love with Superman as a kid, to the origins of the store and how they embraced Free Comic Book Day and built it up to what it is today.
