Stanislav Ianevski Panel at Supanova 2012

Made famous by playing Viktor Krum in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Stanislav Ianevski cuts an incredibly intimidating figure. And boy is he aware of it.

He looks like the sort of guy who could carry you like a small doll, with biceps as big as babie...

Christopher Lloyd Panel at Supanova 2012

The biggest attraction of Supanova 2012 would have had to have been Christopher Lloyd. Personally, I grew up with my favourite film being Back to the Future, and judging from the packed to the brink room, I wasn’t alone.

Supanova is a great place to see some cosplay, meet idols, and trawl the comic and anime stalls, but it’s also a good place to take a look at some of the indie developers that we have right here in our own backyard. I got the chance to talk to Gonzalo Araya, the ‘task tetriser’ for Red Knight Games about the game they were showing off, Grapple Knight. Grapple Knight is an awesome...
