5 Comic Events in Australia You Should Go To Now
One of the perks of being a nerd and a comic fan these days are the many conventions. The advent of comic conventions in the US paved the way for more comic events in Australia. We Aussies love our comics, so it’s only natural that we get a few ourselves.
Most of the comic conventions started small. A few mates going together, then getting a more prominent group involved. As these events grew, so did the scope and the number of fans in attendance.
From small toy fairs came the big events that garnered a national following. Which ones should you go? Which ones are the best? We have a full list of the five biggest Aussie comic events comic your way.Supanova Expo

5 Reasons We Love Comic Shops In Australia

5 Reasons We Love Comic Shops In Australia
Comic shops in Australia are some of the most iconic locales. There’s nothing that can beat in-shop experience, even with digital distribution becoming the norm. The truth, however, is that it’s easy to go under if you’re a local comic store.
With Amazon and other digital bookstores using their digital storefronts, why should you buy from local comic shops? We have five reasons why.Finding Indie Titles
Comic book stores are not only about Marvel and DC. Sure, the super hot comics come from the MCU and DCEU storylines. Who doesn’t like a great Spiderman story, right?
Even then, there’s more out there than the big American comicbooks. Local Australian artists tend to sell their creations through local comic shops. Many indie artists do so not only to earn money but to create a community for themselves.
If you’re an indie artist, one of the biggest obstacles is stirring people’s interest in your work. There’s social media, but getting to sell yo…

History of Comics in Australia

Aussies love comics. Much like our fellow fans from the United States, we love it as much, if not more. Have you ever wondered why is that?
We have one of the richest comic book histories in the world. The history of comics in Australia is so deep in us that we’ve got a lot of local history to tell. Not everything is unique to us, but it shows a lot of our culture here down under.
Here’s what happened.
Early Days Of Aussie Comics
The history of comics in Australia started in 1908, with newspaper sources referring to Vumps. Vumps published with the subtitle “pure Australian fun.” The publication, however, only lasted for a single issue.
By the 1910s and 1920s, there are a few small but regular publications of newspaper comics. These include The Golden Age of Australian Comics in 1916 and You & Me by Stan Cross in 1920. At this point, Australia’s longest running comic strip, Ginger Meggs, came into fruition under the pen of Jimmy Bancks in 1921.
