Gandalfs clicked seflies, the Jokers scared a bunch, and Deadpool was a complete mischief maker. Superhero or not, this year’s Delhi Comic Con saw fans from Delhi throng to the NSIC grounds for the 6th edition of the convention. This year, Deadpool and Joker were the popular choices. “I have always been a fan of the Joker, and the new Jared Leto look is my favourite,” said Dhananjay Singh, a student of Delhi University.
