Convention: UCON 2019, Cape Town
The University of Cape Town's Genshiken society is hosting another UCON, the "anime, gaming, and general nerd convention", this time in partnership with e-sports organisers ACGL and at GrandWest instead of the UCT Sports Centre.
Details are sketchy as to what the comics representation is going to be but Stephen Spinas
(who is currently running a crowdfunding campaign for his comic Em Is For Monsters
) will have a table at the convention and Readers Den Comic Shop is also likely to be selling manga- and anime-related merchandise.

SunExhibits, GrandWest Casino & Entertainment World, 1 Jakes Gerwel Drive, Goodwood, Cape Town, South Africa
