Saudi Arabia is currently hosting its first ever Comic-con, a three-day festival of anime, pop art, video gaming and film-related events. Two prominent “Game of Thrones” stars attended the event: Julian Glover (Grand Maester Pycelle) and Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister), as well as other international stars such as Mads Mikkelsen (Dr. Hannibal Lecter) and American award-winning Science Fiction/Fantasy author Maxwell Alexander Drake.

Lebanese street art artists ASHEKMAN are also taking part in the event and selling their ASHEKMAN Clothing collection including geeky t-shirt designs and limited edition prints.

On another note, how come we haven’t had a Comic-Con in Lebanon yet?
