  1. Nice event but it should also be used to identify talent available to be encouraged for production of home grown comics and characters! Zambia can not be perpetual copycats of everything foreign! I bet no one attended characterizing either Katona, Ponyax, Apam Wamba or indeed long forgotten “Smiler” the naughty lad whose life in Lusaka revolved around Matero! Zambian humor is great and comics wouldn’t lack subject matter!

  2. Event should be natinwide or hosting should alternate among all the capital towns of zambia..Nice creativity and mind provoking event!
