Hi Sarah alias TLO
It was a pleasure. We did this for ourselves and for the ASA Comics/ Graphic Novels Portfolio members so we could plan for the year but thought it may be of use to the larger Aussie comics community. Yes, I (Julie) should be attending the Brisbane Supanova and both of us will be attending the ACAF in May, pending confirmation that we have a table etc. See you up there.
