Known for its conservative traditions and culture, Saudi Arabia has recently been revamping itself to become a more ‘moderately Islamic country’.

Saudi Comic Con held annually in the country aims to attract the huge amount of comic fans all across the country. Apart from Somerhalder, Wagner Moura from Narcos and Gustaf Skasgard from Vikings will also be attending the event.
