So I had planned on writing this and putting it up days ago, but I didn’t, and then I forgot when it was and thought it was ages away. Then I realised it was this weekend. So here you go. Sorry.

Comics on K is a weekend event celebrating and showcasing New Zealand comics. It will include an exhibition of comic art, and the artists themselves will be there to sell their work and have a chat. The art in the exhibition will be auctioned at the end of the weekend, and on the Saturday there’ll be talks from 5pm by cartoon luminaries Dylan Horrocks (Hicksville) and Chris Slane (NZ Listener). Last time I saw Dylan Horrocks talk he was hilarious. Also there for the weekend will be the Sheehan Brothers, Brent Willis, Marc Streeter, Stefan Neville and Frank & Becky. New Zealand comic creators aren’t snooty and don’t put on any airs and graces, so this will be a great opportunity not only to see their work but to also meet the people behind the comics. Whether you’re already a comic enthusiast or just curious to see if you might become one, it’s sure to be an entertaining and informative event.

Held this weekend (17th & 18th October), the event is a week before Auckland’s Armageddon Expo – which, as we all know, has little to do with New Zealand comics.

Comics on K is proudly presented by The Cross Street Carnival, Fleet fm, The High Seas and the K Rd Business Association.
