Ay, Caramba! It's Time for Supanova 2015, Sydney and Perth!

Bigger, Better, Best: Are You Ready for Supanova?

It's time to get your pop culture fix as Supanova takes over Sydney Showground next weekend (19-21 June), and the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre the weekend after (27-28 June).

Friday night kicks off with a Welcoming Ceremony, featuring appearances from our Supa-Star guests and a rockin' performance by voice actor Eric Stuart.

There's family fun activities such as real-life Quidditch matches, Timezone's Pinball Championship, AWF Wrestling and screenings in the AnimeLab.

Imagineer's Playground will host expert demonstrations such as prosthetics/makeup from Weta Workshop, and monster making in Sydney from Billy Bryan, who's best known as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Comic books play a strong presence with an exhibition from the Pieces Project, and portfolio reviews/talent search by international publisher, Aspen Comics.

Of course, our Supa-Star celebrities will be on hand to talk to fans during the expo with Q&A panels, autographs and studio portraits. We'll also host a Vlogger panel in Sydney for the internet crowd.

Tickets are on sale now through Moshtix or available at the door.

10 Years of Ceremonial Mastery

A decade ago, a group of podcasters from Launceston contacted Supanova to see if they could interview Michael Turner and Frank Mastromauro of Aspen Comics for their show.

The response? "Interview whoever you like!" and, "Why don't you come and host the stages?" Ten years on, MCs David 'Quinny' Quinn and Chris Rattray reflect on hosting panels at Supanova.

"My fondest memory is either meeting Stan Lee and hearing that iconic voice asking who this 'Quinny' is," says David, "or just meeting my childhood heroes, Optimus Prime, Atreyu, Princess Leia... befriending them has been a magical experience as an adult."

Chris concurs, "Fist-bumping Alfie 'Theon Greyjoy' Allen spontaneously backstage before his panel in Sydney a couple of years ago was a highlight, but my favourite thing is running a panel for someone who hasn't done it before, watching their confidence grow as the conversation unfolds. That's an honour."

Supanova was a biannual event ten years ago. Now, it travels to six cities nationwide over a year, an undertaking made easier by "caffeine!" says David. "It gets the day started! Also the team I work with; it's a family, it really is! And the people who tell me that they enjoy the panels and love coming to them."

"Furthermore," adds Chris, "the friends we've made along the way and get to see every year... that's the show for me."

David and Chris look forward to hosting Aspen again this year, and watch out for the rest of the Supanova MC Team: Ineke, Peter, Mitch and Lucy!

The action keeps on going for fans after hours with the official Supanova After-Party!
