Oz Comic Con Sydney 16′ REVIEW

In 2016 OZCC hit Sydney like a wrecking ball of pop culture madness! Look, I straight up loved OzCC this year. Like, it was super professional, catered well to many diverse types of people, was busy enough and big enough. Transport took a while – Glebe Island is always a bit of a trek to get to, but once I ... Read More »

Gold Coast Supanova Wrap-Up

The beginning of another Con season in Queensland saw the Gold Coast host yet another relatively successful Supanova. It had all the trimmings with stars, cosplay, stalls, panels, and even the cosplay parade on Sunday morning.

After yet another successful Zedtown Zombie event in October they are pulling out all the stops and throwing down the bloody gauntlet and running just ONE more this year on the 13th of December.

Oz ComicCon VS EB Games Expo!

Okay so of course this is an absolutely ludicrous comparison which no journalist worth their salt should even attempt to make. Apples and Oranges. Dogs and Ponies. Capes VS DVD’s. Hell, Even a blogger like myself would be expected to know better, as one convention is ostensibly a large mainstream pop culture event which casts a wide net across every ... Read More »
