Comic Frontier, dubbed as Indonesia’s biggest creative exhibition, will hold its second online event this year. This time, the event will have its mini-metaverse by holding it on the Rabbit Sky platform. Aside from watching the live streams, visitors can interact virtually through the event’s virtual venue.
Around 400 creators will be placed in seven exhibition halls alongside the Main Stage which will host the event’s activities. The virtual venue will be accessible on PCs and smartphones.
Panel Discussions for Indonesia’s pop culture scene
Aside from the activities in the virtual space, Comifuro will host a series of talks throughout the weekend divided into two formats: Comifuro Radio and Panel Discussions.
On Comifuro Radio, Indonesian comics writer Tanfidz T. talks about the country’s comic industry during the pandemic on Day 1. Professional cosplayer Zhuge Kamiya shares his insights on the monetization potentials of the country’s cosplay activities on Day 2.
On the other hand, the panel discussions cater to the playful side of the audience. The panel of DekaBig, Dewon and haretalayla shares a parasocial relationship analysis about Virtual YouTubers on Day 1, while Rubio Gunawan talks about the rise of the Dungeons and Dragons board game and why it’s popular in the creative industry on Day 2.
