This last weekend, on June 6-7, Ukraine finally got its first ComicCon. It took place in Kyiv, in the Ukrainian House (which used to be a Lenin Museum during the Soviet times and in the winter of 2014 hosted Free University of Maidan during the Revolution of Dignity).

It lasted for two days and brought way more people than the organizers expected. It was made possible through crowdfunding.

The program was intense and diverse. Logistically, the organizers divided the building into the Dark Side and the Light Side:

It had some great cosplayers (none of these photos were made by me, so the images are followed by the links back to where I took them. )
