Five years ago, tickets for the first ever Comic Con were sold for free and the founder Jatin Verma remembered counting the number of attendees for the event.
Now, into its sixth year, tickets for the comic-based event had started selling a week before and the organizers are expecting close to 30,000 footfalls.
