Oz Comic-Con Back in Town Mel­bourne, Get Set To Go Geeks Galore

Q Magazine - - Q Fun -

Oz Comic-Con is back in Mel­bourne June 9-10, at the Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre, pro­vid­ing Vic­to­ria's yearly, ul­ti­mate cel­e­bra­tion of pop-cul­ture.

Oz Comic-Con Mel­bourne is an ex­cit­ing cul­mi­na­tion of multi-genre con­tent, from across the spec­trum, with a lot of ev­ery­thing, for ev­ery­one – ap­pear­ances by film and tele­vi­sion stars, comic book artists and voice ac­tors; gam­ing demon­stra­tions and cos­play com­pe­ti­tions; cre­ative work­shops and master classes; and hard-to-find, ex­clu­sive mer­chan­dise from ven­dors that'll leave con­ven­tion go­ers to­tally geek­ing out.

Kids can try their hand at comic art, at the kids' comic artists work­shops, or even get into cos­play for the Kids Cos­play Pa­rade. Comic col­lec­tors can head over to the comic grad­ing area, and to the main stage for guest panel dis­cus­sions. Anime fans will have their knowl­edge tested with trivia, and die-hard cos­play­ers can kick off their jour­ney to take home the in­ter­na­tional ti­tle, in Mel­bourne's Cham­pi­onship of Cos­play heat. Gamers will be get­ting a work-out too, with Couch War­riors, putting their skills to the test in daily tour­na­ments of new and clas­sic ti­tles.

And this is only a pre­view of what's on of­fer!

Jono Why­man, Event Man­ager of ReedPOP says:

“This is the big­gest Oz Comic-Con to hit Mel­bourne. We’re proud to be sup­port­ing great, lo­cal Vic­to­rian busi­nesses and tal­ent at this year’s expo and in Artist Al­ley. It’s go­ing to be an awe­some show­case of all things pop-cul­ture, from orig­i­nal and fan art, to comic books, art prints, nov­els, jewellery, cloth­ing and home­wares. If you’re look­ing to buy the next clos­est thing to Thor’s mighty ham­mer, this is where you’ll find it!”.
