Oz Comic-Con Melbourne 2013

Posted by David On July 16, 2013 ADD COMMENTS

Listeners of our podcast will know that I attended Oz Comic-Con Melbourne a couple of Saturdays ago and to say that I had an awesome time is an understatement.

I simply cannot praise this year’s event enough. A beautiful venue in the Exhibition Building, well thought out layout, heaps to do and see, quality food, and an awesome selection of guests.

This is how a convention is meant to be done!

So thank you Hub Productions, for an awesome show. And thanks also to Blue Planet for organising interviews with some of the guests and generally being awesome!

One of the highlights of the show for me was not only getting to speak and interview some of my favourite comic people like Phil Jimenez, Nicola Scott, Freddie Williams II, & Paul Mason, but I also managing to score some breathtaking sketches/commissions from them!

Calling all Melbourne Pop Culture fans!

Get ready to set Phasers to Fun  (yeah, I went there) and jump to Warp Factor over 9000! (yeah I know I mixed franchises – don’t judge me!)  because Captain James T Kirk himself – Mr William Shatner – is coming to Oz Comic-Con!!!

Melbourne fans thought they were going to miss out when he was only confirmed for Perth & Adelaide, but apparently he loves us so much he’s coming back!

If you didn’t already have enough reasons to go to this year’s Oz Comic-Con, with their amazing line up of guests, then you definitely do now 🙂

We’ll be there (I wouldn’t miss this for anything) and we hope you’ll be there too.
