Are you ready all you Comic Con fans? Reed Exhibitions Africa and ReedPOP have just announced that acclaimed Emmy Award winner, actor, author, producer, director, and singer William Shatner is appearing at Comic Con Africa in September 2019. Shatner became a cultural icon for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise in the Star Trek franchise.
Shatner’s Captain Kirk was charismatic, moral, just and headstrong. Brave enough to save a planet under attack and charming enough to win over the most stubborn dissenters. Kirk stubbornly took matters into his own hands, often disobeying orders, but was an inspirational leader who pushed his crew, his ship and most of all, himself, to the limits of what they could accomplish.
He has written a series of books chronicling his experiences playing Captain Kirk and being a part of Star Trek, and has co-written several novels set in the Star Trek universe. He has also written a series of science fiction novels called TekWar that were adapted for television.
But only a ticket to Comic Con Africa will give you the opportunity to meet the Godfather of Sci-Fi. Tickets to this must-attend pop culture festival of the year are selling out fast.
Dates are 21 – 24 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.
Tickets are R 160 and a 4-day pass will cost you R 500.
