It's been too long since I've been to a comic convention. I'm having withdrawal symptoms. I'm also loudly mourning the fact that my bank balance won't allow me to attend San Diego Comic Con. So I've decided to heal my heart with this year's Oz Comic Con in Melbourne.
After the success of the inaugural event in Adelaide this March, they've now booked in Stan Lee, Patrick Stewart, Julie Benz, Francis Manapul, KJ Taylor, Jason Momoa, Firefly's Sean Maher and plenty more for the first Melbourne event.
The convention kicks off in Melbourne on Saturday 30th June and runs through Sunday 1st July, followed by more engagements in Perth and Adelaide at the beginning of 2013. I'll be heading off with thousands of other fans to Melbourne Exhibition Centre and covering the weekend's events for Bleeding Cool.
Single day and weekend passes are on sale now.
