Celebrate all things geek, nerd and pop culture at Oz Comic-Con

Clare Kramer (you know her as Buffy archnemesis Glory from season five) will host Oz Comic-Con 2018, interviewing guests on the main stage. The popular expo takes over Jeff's Shed in June for a celebration of movies, TV, comics, books, video games and all things entertainment and pop culture. 

Julian Dennison, known the world over as Ricky Baker, will be appearing at Oz Comic-Con, his first convention appearance. His Hunt for the Wilderpeople appearance charmed Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds, who cast Dennison in Deadpool 2. 

Joe Mangiello, best known as Alcide in Southern Gothic vampire show True Blood, will also be appearing. He was also in smash hit Magic Mike and has recently appeared as Deathstroke in DC Comics films. 

Other guests for the 2018 event include Tasya Teles of i-Zombie and Rogue, Lesley-Ann Brandt of Spartacus and Lucifer, and Australia's Keiynan Lonsdale, who plays Wally West in popular TV series The Flash

Simpsons artist and writer Dean Rankine will also be there (and yes, he'll draw you as a Simpsons charater), along with Marvel artist Wayne Nichols (he's drawn Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk, among others) and Paul Bedford and Henry Pop, who are the creative team behind wildly popular horror graphic novel The List.

In addition to guests, talks, Q&As, photos and autographs, there will also be scores of stalls selling merch, toys, books, comics, costumes and other cool stuff. And of course, it wouldn't be a comic con without cosplay – keep your eyes peeled for punters dressed as your favourite characters throughout the building, plus of course the cosplay competition.
