The first Middle East Film and Comic Con was supposed to happen in 2011. It was cancelled due to the Fukushima tragedy in Japan as it affected some of the visiting artists. We thought that was the end of it and Comic Con would never actually happen in Dubai.
But it did! And it goes on!
This is the 4th year of Comic Con here but the first time that I will actually go. Last year, my son was lucky recipient of a VIP Pass from a friend. No photo or signing sessions with any of the stars but he had a great time.
This weekend, Patrick and I will be making our way down those hallowed halls and hopefully get into a photo op with Capt. Kirk and Agent Carter. I am going to bring my GISHWHES flag and have Capt, Kirk hold it up with me.
