Sydney and Brisbane, it’s pop culture party time! Oz Comic-Con blasts back into town this September
After the huge success of the inaugural Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney events in 2014, and a recent sell-out show for Oz Comic-Con Melbourne, Australia’s best-loved pop culture extravaganza jets back to Brisbane and Sydney this September.
Taking over the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on 19th and 20th September and the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island on 26th and 27th September, Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney will feature a huge variety of celebrity guests, comic artists, interactive features and awesome exhibitors.
Guests currently include Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver, Stargate SG-1), Tim Rose (Star Wars), Daniel Portman (Game of Thrones), Dante Basco (Hook) and Mike McFarland (Dragon Ball-Z) amongst many others. Over the coming weeks, many more amazing names will be added to this stellar line-up. Guests will be available over the weekend for autograph and photograph opportunities, as well as taking part in exclusive Q&A panels.
Cosplay and costume lovers, take note! Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney are also hosting their respective state finals of the Australian Championships of Cosplay, with Sydney also the venue for the national finals. The lucky winner will score the opportunity to compete in the 2016 Crown Championships of Cosplay at C2E2 in Chicago. The events will also host both a kids and adult cosplay parade, for cosplayers of all ages and abilities to showcase their fabulous costume creations.
Taking place during the September school holidays, Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney are also a perfect way to keep the whole family entertained. From the Family Activity Room, where kids can take a break from the main show floor to play, to the Berocca Boost Gaming Zone where gamers of all ages can showcase their skills, there’s something at Oz Comic-Con for family members of all ages to enjoy.
“It’s been a huge year for Oz Comic-Con, and we’re looking forward to bringing the final two shows for 2015 to Brisbane and Sydney,” said Paul Baker, Director at ReedPOP. “It really is the ultimate show…no matter how old you are, or what you love, Oz Comic-Con is Australia’s favourite pop culture extravaganza.”
