Oz Comic-Con tomorrow!!!!!

Posted by David On June 29, 2012 1 COMMENT

That’s right, the chance to meet the legendary Stan Lee and other stars such as Patrick Stewart, Armin Shimerman, Jason Momoa, Sean Maher, Mitch Pileggi, Francis Manapul, Sharon Taylor, Bobby N, and many many more becomes a reality for Melbourne fans tomorrow when Oz Comic-Con opens its doors.

Ticket sales have been huge and have beaten the record set by the Adelaide show – well done my fellow Melbournians!

I have already been privileged enough to interview Mr Armin Shimerman, the lovely Sharon Taylor, and all round nice guy Francis Manapul, and the chance to meet the other great guests is amazing. I’m so excited I’m going to burst!

You can still pre-purchase tickets from Ticketmaster – Ticketmaster – and avoid the queues, or at the door. Doors open 9am!

You can keep up to date by following their Twitter – Official Hashtag for the Oz Comic-Con event is #OCCMel – or you can tweet directly to @OzComicCon.

I’ll be there wearing one of our new Nerd Culture Podcast T-shirts, so don’t be afraid to say Hi! I’d love to meet you!

Cya at the show!
