Comic Con in Dubai

I realize this story is a little out of the way for Raingeek, but it was so fascinating I just had to share it. Dubai has just held its first film and comic convention last weekend, with guests such as John Rhys-Davies from Indiana Jones and Laurie Holden from The Walking Dead. Of there was lots of cosplay, and even a zombie walk. What makes this so incredible is that this is happening in Dubai of all places! This is the same country that’ll lock you up if you so much as step on a joint of marijuana. Even a country like this can loosen up and let a lonely stormtrooper have some fun. It’s stories like this that remind me that these conventions are ultimately a force for good in this world.
