Comic Fiesta is proud to be powered by fans like you, and here's an extra special opportunity for you to learn more and really sink your teeth into what it means to be one of the people behind Comic Fiesta.
Traditionally, we would recruit volunteers and brief them one day before CF itself, but starting last year, we have kicked a brand new program that will turn you from a quiet shy helper, to a glorious, loud, dripping-with-awesome Felyne! So what's this all about?
The Felyne Brigade is a special unit of volunteers who survive a 2-day training camp. Participants will be spending two nights with other campers, learning everything there is to know about Comic Fiesta, directly from the source. If you sign up, you will learn what it's like to operate in a squad, execute unique maneuvers, and rediscover a new you! More importantly, you might have a chance to listen to our deepest, darkest secrets... (e.g. the color of President Nerv's favourite undies)

Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between this camp and being a normal volunteer?
Being a normal volunteer means you sign up, and attend for the pre-event briefing, and help out during the event itself which is perfectly fine. You don't have to pay anything (why should you pay when you're HELPING us, right?). The Felyne Camp is an optional, but highly recommended, training program where you learn about what CF is all about, and learn how to operate effectively as a powerful, focused unit.
In short, we train you to become cyborg ninja assassins.
Why do I have to pay for this camp?
Running the camp comes with costs such as transportation, facilities, etc. but more importantly, it pays for what you eat during the camp. Rest assured, we will feed you well
Do I have to sleep there? Can I just join the program and sleep at home?
Nope. It's a CAMP. That means you eat, bathe, sleep, play, laugh, cry, jump, and roll together with everyone else throughout the ENTIRE program. That's kinda like, the point, actually.
Why hold it at MMU Cyberjaya? Why not, Cameron Highlands, Port Dickson, etc?
The Felyne Camp is proudly supported by EMiNA -Society of Modern Visual Culture, who will be hosting the camp as well as helping us with facilities and ensuring the camp runs smoothly. It's good to have friends, you know?
Also, the reason we're not holding the camp at more 'professional' camping facilities is because we're broke.
"You think KLCC is cheap ah?" - Fazri, Vice President
Who will facilitate the camp activities?
Why, the committees of Comic Fiesta, of course! Don't worry, we'll take good care of you over the weekend. We promise we won't brainwash you or anything.
What do I get out of this camp?
Awesome. You will be awesome.
