Indie Comic Con, Melbourne’s newest comic book festival celebrating local and independent
comic creators. Saturday 4th November 2017, Northcote Town Hall.
The concept of Indie Comic Con was born when two Melbourne comic artists missed out on a
spot at a major comic convention in their own city. Not for lack of great comics, but rather that
exhibition space was dedicated largely to fan art and merchandise instead. If a comic book
creator couldn’t get a table at a comic convention, where could they exhibit? Recognising that
exhibition opportunities for independent comic creators are limited in Australia, Nathan Onias
launched Indie Comic Con as a platform for independent creators to share their work with a
Indie Comic Con is dedicated to providing a market for independent Australian creators and
promoting interest in the craft of sequential art. Following a successful Kickstarter campaign
Indie Comic Con will be held at the Northcote Town Hall on Saturday, 4th November, 2017 from
10AM-5PM and feature over 40 creators from all over Australia. Indie Comic Con will put comic
books back in the forefront at a comic convention and connect indie creators to an audience
that is engaged in their art-form. Indie Comic Con is proudly sponsored by Comic Books On
Demand, Media Arts Lawyers, Work-Shop Melbourne, & The Comic Place.
