Oz Comic-Con Back in Town Melbourne, Get Set To Go Geeks Galore
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!”.
WHEN: June 9th (Saturday) – 10th (Sunday) from 9am – 6pm, daily.
WHERE: The Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, 1 Convention Centre Pl, South Wharf VIC 3006.
