Yes that’s right my fellow nerds, geeks and pop culture fans, Comic Con is coming to Australia and more specifically MELBOURNE featuring the man, the icon, the one and only Stan Lee!!! I am bugging out a bit, its a dream of mine to be in a CC over in San Diego but to have a stall and attend one in my home city is also a massive trip! As per usual the con will feature a vast array of actors from film, television and comic industry heavyweights including Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Stargate Atlantis, Falling Skies) and Sean Maher (Firefly, Serenity) , for a full list of attendees check here. Something else all aspiring local comic book artists can get excited about is Scott Allie (Dark Horse Comics, Senior Managing Editor) being in attendance and scouting for new talent. There will be an opportunity to submit your work to him for professional review which is an Australian first!
The dates for the Australian Con locations are as follows:
Melbourne on 30th June & 1st July 2012
Perth event on 26th & 27th of February 2013
Adelaide next year on 2nd & 3rd March 2013
Personally I will have a stall in the Artist Alley so if your there please do come down and drop in to say hello, I will have a bunch of vinyl and hopefully some new canvas works on display so I look forward to seeing you there!!!!!
