Publisher Aspen Comics is pleased to announce their attendance at not one, but two Supanova Pop Culture Expo shows two consecutive weekends in a row – Sydney from June 19th to the 21st, and Perth from June 26th to the 28th.
Guests will include Frank Mastromauro (Shrugged), Peter Steigerwald (The ZooHunters), Mark Roslan (BubbleGun), Siya Oum (Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam), and Giuseppe Cafaro (Fathom: Kiani). With them, the Aspen team will have four Supanova exclusive variants covers. There will be a Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam #2 by series creator Oum, who will be available to sign throughout both weekends.
In addition, the debut issue of Aspen’s all-new Fathom title – the first in over 10 years – Fathom Blue #1, will feature two mirrored Michael Turner covers, one exclusive to Sydney and the other to Perth, plus a Supanova Expo exclusive by Giuseppe Cafaro that will be available at both conventions.
Aspen will also have with them a selection of their industry-leading prints, including (but not limited to) full-size prints of the aforementioned exclusives: Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam #2 by Oum, Fathom Blue #1 by Cafaro, and one of the two Fathom Blue #1 Turner/Steigerwald mirrored covers, dependent on region. Check the booth for pricing and availability.
As a Supanova Pop Culture Expo special, Aspen will have “Down Under Walkabout” tour t-shirts in a variety of sizes for attendees to purchase. Shirts will feature full-color art from a variety of Aspen artists, and will be exclusive to Supanova Sydney and Perth.
Supanova and Aspen Comics are also teaming up for the Aspen Down Under Talent Search. Expo attendees will have the opportunity to submit their portfolio for review, with the chance to score a paid cover gig. For more details, please visit the page.
And finally, Aspen will be hosting panels at both Sydney and Perth shows, where the team will discuss upcoming projects, show exclusive art, and take questions from fans and attendees. For times and locations of these panels, consult your Supanova Pop Culture Expo program guide.
