Comic Fiesta 2010 Aims To Reward Visitors and Challenge Perceptions

Since it’s humble beginnings as a small exhibition at the Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall in 2002, Comic Fiesta has grown exponentially in both size and scope to become the premier ACG (Anime, Comics & Games) event in Malaysia. The 2009 edition of this expo brought in almost 8,000 visitors from all walks of life together under the roof of the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre, the biggest audience yet for an ACG event organized in Malaysia.

Now, Comic Fiesta 2010 looks set to break the record yet again. Being held at the Manhattan Ballroom of Berjaya Times Square Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 18 and 19 December 2010, this year’s iteration organized by Sequential Youth Arts Society (SAYS) is planned to bring ”more of everything”, as well as challenge the local perception of what an ACG event can offer to its visitors and the Malaysian ACG community.

In addition to the ever-popular Artists Booth (formerly known as the Doujin Market) and anticipated Cosplay Competitions, Comic Fiesta 2010 will also be premiering new, never-seen-before attractions for all visitors.

Tickets are priced at RM15 for a one-day entry, and may be purchased at the venue itself. Visitors can also choose to pre-order their tickets at RM25 for both days using the order form from the official website. Application forms for the cosplay and karaoke competitions are also available from the website.
