Comic Gong Launch [UPDATED: 27/03/13]

There's a new comics event happening in Wollongong later this year – Comic Gong. It's the inaugural event in what is hoped to be an annual event.

Comic Gong aims to provide a fun and creative day out for children, youth and adults to immerse themselves in the dynamic world of comic books and pop culture. The day will include trade displays including Kings Comics and Film Ink, an artist alley showcasing various Australian comic artists including our friend and comics compatriot Marcello Baez, anime screenings from Madmen, a caricature artist, workshops for kids and young people, as well as great giveaways including comics and a major prize of an iPad. Also throughout the day there will be a costume competition, technology petting zoo, badge making, comic craft, circus performers, food stall, air brush tattoos and a photo booth.

Comic Gong will be the start of BMP's convention circuit as we have secured an Artists' Alley table and we'll be selling copies of Elf~Fin there amongst other goodies. So here's the important bit:

Date: Saturday 18 May 2013
Time: 10am to 1pm
Venue: Corrimal Community Centre and Library, 15 Short Street Corrimal
Further information: Phone (02) 4227 7414 (phone) or email

With so much going on, it's a shame it only goes for three hours! Maybe they'll extend it next year.
