Absolutely wrecked after a huge weekend of Supanova (and a very croaky and tired gig with my band at the Toff). I got quite a few of my comics into new hands, and had some return customers from last year, which was extra great. The new Zombolette Floppy was ready in time and it went down pretty well.
I didn’t have heaps of time to see talks or guests, but I had a browse around the stalls and met some very inspiring artists.
Preparing for the event was pretty hectic and stressful, and I was thinking I wouldn’t be up for another convention this year, but now it’s all done and dusted I want more…
^^ My lovely and talented table-mates, Ive Sorocuk and Alex E Clark.
In case anyone missed Scaryminds’ outlandishly lovely review of Zombolette, here’s a snippet of what they had to say:
“There is no room for Twilight in Zombolette, though our zombie gal is infinitely more interesting than the rather droll Bella. Baccini develops her character well, doesn’t let the overall personality falter at any stage, and for mine presents a concept that should have most dark genre dreamers taking names and notes. Zombolette joins Killeroo as one of the great Aussie creations that alas remains under the radar of the vast majority of comic book readers. I’m not going to say much more, read the book to get the good oil, but if the concept of a zombie with body armour made up of tampons, with an IUD helmet appeals, then dial on in, that’s just for starters. Scarlette Baccini is either stark raving mad, or an unsung genius of the script, your call!”
