There can be no denying that the last three years have been something of a renaissance for The Phantom in Australia. The work of the new Frew Crew has been nothing sort of extraordinary, with a great many innovations in both comic books and merchandise. Trade Paperbacks, Australian creators, Kid Phantom, the resurgence of Giantsize, pholios, phile cards.... the list goes on and on and on...
It is always a fascinating and absorbing opportunity to hear from the key driver of this innovation and modernisation - and here is your chance!
Glenn Ford, Director of Frew Publications, will be speaking at the Australian Cartoonists Association's President's Night on 2 March 2019 in Lindfield, Sydney. Tickets are at a bargain price of just $25 ($27.46 with booking fees) and include a smorgasbord dinner and a talk from Glenn Ford who will be discussing life with The Phantom.
Other (non-Phantom) speakers will include Anton Emdin (who will be talking about that holy grail for cartoonists - creating movie parodies for MAD Magazine), Cathy Wilcox (Sydney Morning Herald regular), Fiona Katauskas (ABC's Talking Pictures) and Nicola Scott (DC, Wonder Woman). There will also be another secret speaker or two revealed nearer to the event.
For anyone in Sydney at that time, get along and grab a great smorgasbord dinner and hear multiple awesome guest speakers at the same time! It's an opportunity too good to pass up!
So what are you waiting for? This event is open to ACA members and the public alike! No non-members pricing, just $25 per person! BYO drinks - there is a bottle shop nearby. Get your tickets NOW! Bookings close 26 February. DON'T MISS OUT!
