Northcote Town Hall, 189 High St, Northcote.

Hola, it’s time to get down to home-style comics cookin’, put on by probably the city for comics in Australia, the City of Darebin. More comics artists per capita than anywhere else I’m sure. There’ll be a ton of things to do on the day. There’ll be performances, lots of drawing workshops for kids, face painting, cosplay and dress-ups, and best of all, 30 tables and stalls of comics goodness for you to come and find something interesting to read, chat to their makers, get something drawn or whatever. I am biased, but I love this festival and it’s so community based and scaled, quite apart from the big pop culture expos where comics get lost amid the colour and movement of motion pictures and what not. I will be behind a table selling my books and also with lots of information about the Australian Society of Authors, where I handle their comics and graphic novels portfolio. But I can also answer all manner of questions about being any kind of an author. See you there!
