Comixense @ Indie Comix Fest, Mumbai
We had a table at the Indie Comix Fest (ICF) in Mumbai in March 2023. It was energising – and quite a revelation – to be at an event with so many others doing comics independently of the big publishers. Shannon Vaz, who was interning with Comixense at the time, Lucano Alvares, and comics creator and Cx contributor Rohit Karandadi helped in managing the table.

Comixense @ Goa Book Fair 2023
The Goa Book Fair ran from February 9 to 13, 2023 in Margao, Goa. On the last day of the event, Comixense Consulting Editor (and quizmaster-at-large) Annie Sen Gupta conducted a Comix Quiz at the event. A handful of college students, and a few adults, who had come for the book fair had a good time cracking the relatively easy set of questions. The top teams won sets of copies of Comixense magazine.

Interaction with students from the department of English, Chowgule College
Comixense editors Orijit Sen and Francesca Cotta, along with Rai and Mohd Salman, the artist and writer duo whose comic City of Astronomers is published in Issue 1 of the magazine, joined students from the Department of English at Chowgule College in Margao, Goa, for a lively interactive session. The students asked such thoughtful and interesting questions, that two hours sailed by, with us feeling that there was still more to chat about with them!
They made this lovely gratitude post for us after the event: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQV5_jijZWp/
