This competition has now closed. Congratulations to Mallory, who won with her smashing poem about Rodney McKay.
OK, you crazy Melburnians. We may have missed out on seeing Benedict Cumberbatch when he visited Adelaide’s Comic Con (no bitterness there, oh none at all) but don’t miss seeing some incredibly cool pop culture and comic book cats at the Melbourne Oz Comic Con!
I’m giving away a Weekend Family Pass (2 adults + 2 kids) to the event ($100 value). Can I get a Hell Yes?
Held at the Royal Exhibition Building over the weekend of 5—6 July (yep, smack bang in the middle of Victorian School Holidays), Melbourne Oz Comic Con is a two-day Festival of Extreme Geek. There will be a HUGE range of film, television, animation and comic book guests; there will be panels, parades and photo opps—whatever floats your boat, really! The full schedule can be found here.
Love Game of Thrones (oh, I know you do), come and see Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Daniel Portman (Podrick). Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time / House) will be a guest, Arthur Darvill (Rory from Dr. Who), Shawn & Aaron Ashmore (bringing some serious eye candy with them), Tom Skerritt and freaking MacGyver (Richard Dean Anderson).
Do you seriously need more incentive to enter? There’s even stuff for the kiddies at Oz Comic Con. Come on now, just think of the children!
TO WIN a family pass to Melbourne Oz Comic Con, answer this question in the comments of this post by 5pm, Tuesday 1st July.
“Which cult TV or comic character would you like to have dinner with and why?”
