I guess everyone will agree that fan conventions are an awesome way to geek out and be proud of your inner child. It’s a rite of passage, a pilgrimage of sorts that ushers a true-blue fan in the higher echelon of one’s geekhood. I should know, having covered much of our local LEGO fan conventions in the Philippines sponsored by the Philippine LEGO Users Group (PhLUG), and keeping tabs with LEGO’s upcoming sets as revealed during the renowned San Diego ComicCon (SDCC). Immersing myself in these fan conventions, and engaging with like-minded geeks, is a kind of life-changing experience. Now for our readers who are based in the great land down under, together with other Aussie comic book fans, it’s your turn to join the legion of the faithful who will flock the grounds of Sydney Olympic Park for Australia’s largest and grandest comic book convention ever. The Supanova ComicCon and Gaming will be held from June 21-23, 2019 at The Dome, Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
Even though this is not much about the LEGO brick, everything is still pretty awesome with Supanova Sydney 2019. Hailed as Australia’s largest comic book fan convention, Supanova is held annually at six key locations in the continent, and they’re now setting camp in Sydney this weekend. Similar to SDCC, the 3-day convention is jam-packed with guests, artists, panels, cosplayers and exhibitors that you don’t want to miss. As an added treat to the whole family, kids ages 12 years old and below are free to enter with an accompanying parent or adult. Here’s the TV spot for Supanova ComicCon Sydney 2019 for more info.
