Australia is currently in the midst of Comic Convention season with "Cons" being held across the country. In recent months Supanova have run conventions in Gold Coast, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and Oz Comic Cons have run in Adelaide. Melbourne and Perth. Now it's Melbourne's turn to host its third pop culture event for the year, Metro Comic Con.
Metro Comic Con will be held at the Melbourne Showgrounds on the Weekend of July 8th and 9th with a number of popular Phantom creators confirmed as guests.

With 8 recognised Phantom creators confirmed as guests, Metro Comic Con must have the biggest contingent of Phantom Creators ever assembled at one convention outside of Sydney Supanova! Truly a boon for Victorian phans.
At the moment, Metro Comic Con, has not posted any information regarding creator panels, however we have been informed that there will be a panel discussion on our Phavourite hero between creators Paul Mason, Amanda Bacchi, Andrew Constant and Glenn Ford who is coming down for the weekend. We will attempt to record the panel for our platforms to listen if you cannot attend.
* Adults $40/$70 (day/ weekend pass)
* Kids (5-12) $20/$35 (day/ weekend pass)
NB. One free Kids ticket is available with each adult ticket purchased.
You can purchase tickets through the Metro Comic Con Website or by clicking here.
Thanks to Frew's support of local creators, we have seen a vast increase in the presence of the Phantom at the "Cons" but there is always room to grow. Who are other creators that you would like to see at Metro Comic Con? Will you be bringing a bundle of books to sign or lining up for a sketch? Who are you most looking forward to having a chat with?
Leave us a comment on our socials and, as always, Happy Phantoming!
