Cons And Beyond: We’re Going To OZ Comic-Con Melbourne!


It was only two weeks ago when the Supernatural cast traded in their American accents for Australian slang and hung out with furry creatures alike. Following in their footsteps, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be covering all things nerdy in the land down under at OZ Comic-Con Melbourne!

Shooting her arrows at OZ Comic-Con, Willa Holland (Arrow, Gossip Girl) will be joining her Arrowverse TV boyfriend, Colton Haynes (Arrow, Teen Wolf). Our favorite Nephilim, Supernatural’s Alexander Calvert will be learning Enochian from Osric Chau (Supernatural, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency).

And rounding out the epic entertainment line-up is Dominic Sherwood (Shadowhunters), Alberto Rosende (Shadowhunters), Tricia Helfer (Lucifer), D.B. Woodside (Lucifer), Ricky Whittle (The 100, American Gods), Rick Cosnett (The Flash, The Vampire Diaries), Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul), Sam Witwer (Supergirl), Ian Colletti (Preacher) and Carmella (WWE).

If it’s time to try your hand at drawing various caricatures, then fresh off the land of Marvel Jorge Molina is joining the ranks of comic artists alongside Melbourne-based BossLogic, Stewart McKenny (Captain America), Dean Rankine (The Simpsons, Rick and Morty) and many more.

Tickets for the convention are quickly selling out with a very limited number available for Saturday’s events. However, if you’re unable to make it don’t fret as we’ll be reporting the inside goss from highly anticipated panels. So stay tuned!

OZ-Comic Con will be held at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from June 8th-9th, 2019. Make sure to check out their website for ticketing information and any updates.
