It’s the final countdown to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne

There’s less than two weeks until doors open to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 27-28 June.

Highlights of the event will include appearances by Bruce Campbell (The Evil DeadBurn Notice – SATURDAY only), Jason Momoa (Game of ThronesAquaman), Emma Caulfield and Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), David Wenham and Billy Boyd (Lord of the Rings), Stephen Hunter and Adam Brown (The Hobbit), Jewel Staite (Firefly) and Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls). All attending guests will be taking part in exclusive Q&A panels across the weekend, as well as autograph and professional photograph sessions. A limited number of tickets are also still available for exclusive, intimate dinners with guests on the Saturday night of the event.

Oz Comic-Con Melbourne is more than just celebrity guests, however, with a huge range of fun activities the whole family will enjoy happening across the weekend. Not-to-be-missed features include the Red Bull Silent Disco; Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Be The Super Hero’ event where fans can test their Asgaardian strength by trying to lift Thor’s hammer, jump into action and get their photo taken with Captain America’s iconic shield or suit up as Iron Man or Hulk for the ultimate Marvel super hero battle – Hulk vs Hulkbuster; the Berocca Boost Gaming Zone; cosplay parades for both kids and adults; plus the Melbourne finals of the Australian Championships of Cosplay.

The fun of Oz Comic-Con doesn’t end when the doors close at 6PM either, with lots of After Hours parties to continue the fun well into the night. Saturday night will see a Deathstar Disco at Studio3 at Crown, the Beta Bar: Oz Comic-Con After Hours party and the BANG! Cosplay & Kigu Party, while Sunday night will feature the Wharf Hotel’s Live Long and Party. Visit the Oz Comic-Con website for more information and tickets.

Beginning Tuesday 16 June, the Oz Comic-Con Instagram account will be hosting a “Photo A Day” competition. By following the prompts and using the hashtag “OCCPhotoADay”, fans will have the opportunity to win tickets ahead of the event.
