South Africa has a rich and diverse community of comic lovers, con-goers, and general geek culture! Here I explore the Geek Culture of South Africa and document the different events as well as stores within the country.
Top Geek Events
South Africa has a diverse Geek Culture, and as a result, there have been many events, conventions, and conferences to enjoy!
Comic-Con Africa 2019
Comic-Con Africa 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg was absolutely incredible!
Free Comic Book Day | Project Mayhem
Project Mayhem held a Free Comic Book Day on May 4th (Internation Star Wars Day) and it was a ton of fun!
Monster Jam Live South Africa
Monster Jam Live in South Africa for the first time ever! Monster Jam was absolutely phenomenal!
WWE Live South Africa
WWE came to South Africa and I was lucky enough to go to the Johannesburg show.
Dani and I are both massive Geeks who love anything and everything in the niche. We decided to start traveling across South Africa to introduce others in the community to places that they can enjoy and find like-minded people.
After almost 2 decades Smallville Comics has amassed a massive following and created a strong community where all are welcome.
The first store Dani and I filmed on our travels for this series was The Shire, and we couldn’t have chosen a better store to do so!
The Batcave was the first “Geek Store” I ever went to, it has a special place in my heart, and it has changed a lot since its inception.
