Because of our love of comics! The straightforwardness of the illustrated medium, the way it is approachable to almost anyone. The many different styles and techniques there are to this art form, and the fact that it takes the readers experience to a whole new level, be it fantasy or even non-fiction.

• Add to that, India has had a very long history of picture stories and illustrated books. That rich history has evolved into a burgeoning comics industry, which we want to celebrate and help grow, in every way possible.

• An event such as this very much required, in order for it to survive and flourish, fans of Comic books and graphic art in general need a place to show their support, discover new endeavors in the industry.

• Despite the long distinguished history mentioned above, readership still remains low in India due to various factors. Thus, another major motivator for us is to get more prospective readers as well as publishers involved to give this industry it’s due credit and help it grow.

• Other than the reasons listed above, one of the our major motivations to bring this event to life, was to bring to light and honor, the laureates of this field and industry. To come together and celebrate and award their achievements, to do it at the convention annually.
