The Road To Batcon
Some BatNews (uhm, yes, I did that) for Batman fans out there – the long wait is over as The Dark Knight PH (TDKPH) , a local premier Batman fans group will actually make every BatFans (yup, I did it again) dream come true! Batcon is happening and it’s happening soon. Let’s come together and give out favorite superhero the tribute he needs and deserves on June 3, 3017 (Saturday) at the Centris Elements, Quezon City.
After organizing the Batman Day for two consecutive years, The Dark Knight PH is stepping up their fandom game as they host the first (and definitely not the last) BatCon.
BatCon is a gathering of Batman fans and geek fans in the Philippines. It is convention of people from the geek/hobbies community where they can interact with each other, sell or trade items, and meet some of the local talents in the country.
Ultimately, the main goal of the organizers would be to snatch the Guiness World Record for the biggest Batman gathering in the world from its current holder, Nexen Energy which was awarded the titled after 542 of their employees gathered and dressed as the Caped Crusader in Calgary back in 2014.
But the event is not solely about that, in fact, all the ticket’s proceeds are going to be donated to the Haribon Foundation as they continue their mission to conserve protected sites and habitats, save endangered species from going extinct and encourage people to embrace sustainability by empowering them with knowledge and skills.
Apart from all the booths selling all kinds of Batman merchandise, another highlight of the event would be its guests. The Batcon will feature some of the best local artist that have rendered their skills for the Batman Comics.
Some big names to expect would be Stephen Jorge Segovia, whose artistic genius landed him with many projects with Dynamite Entertainment, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics. Segovia is currently one of the staple artists for Valiant and DC Comics. He’s worked with a lot of Batman and Batman-related books such as Batman and Robin Eternal, Convergence, and Batman: Arkham Knight.
The Dex Soy is also making an appearance on the event. Soy was the interior artist for Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis, Legends of the Dark Knight and he’s currently the artist for Red Hood and the Outlaws. You’ll get to meet and greet these talented artist, they might also exhibit some of their finest works.
Apart from his genius-level intellect, what Bruce Wayne ‘The World’s Greatest Detective’ would be his peak human physique and mastery of martial arts, so it’s just fitting the organizers invited a couple of guys from Pekiti Tirsia Kali Pilipinas to exhibit some of the self-defense moves that makes Batman untouchable.
You can expect a lot of panel discussions, games, and raffles during the event. Bargain items will also be available and are not limited to Batman merchandises alone.
