I’ve been too occupied to keep up with the events of the past week and a half, so I thought I’d get kind of caught up today!
Featured Event of March 28-April 8:
Saturday, March 31 – Sunday, April 1, 2012
I know from past messages that Aussie comics fans aren’t always sure which pros are among their numbers, and aspiring Aussie creators have to contend with the vast distance between them and the Big Two editors.
Pros at this year’s Adelaide Oz Con include none other than DC artist Nicola Scott (Birds of Prey, Secret Six, the upcoming Earth-Two) and OEL mangaka Queenie Chan (The Dreaming, In Odd We Trust)! In addition, Nicola Scott will be doing portfolio reviews on Sunday morning! Be sure to sign up early at the Information Booth.
There is also an artists’ alley, but I can’t find a listing for who’s there— tell me if you are! Or go there and discover new Aussie lady creators!
