Saudi Arabia Has It’s First Comic-Con! Nuke The Fridge February 20, 2017 Saudi Arabia first Comic-Con is a big success! Thousands of fans gathered as Saudi Arabia hosts it very first Comic-Con. The event took place inside a recreation center in the Red Sea city of Jeddah. The event not only hopes to entertain the youth but also to break stereotypes. The three-day event celebrated anime, art, video games, movies and looks much like the cons we enjoy here in the United States. Cool to see nerd culture spreading!
