And yes, the sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that this was last weekend. But my comic book fiends at school only told me about it on Monday... So I thought I'd let you know about it now, and I'll mention it on this blog before the 2012 event.
My comic book fiends went to King's Comics and Kinokuniya in Sydney. The site has a FAQ page and a store locator so your comic book fiends can find out about any local stores that are participating and toddle along to acquire freebies.
Said one, "Miss, you should go to Supanova this year."
Supanova Pop Culture Expo is where the adoring public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof.
Gathered from the wonderful worlds of science-fiction, pulp TV/movies, toys, console gaming, trading cards, animation/cartoons, fantasy, comic books, entertainment technology, books, internet sites and fan-clubs, the result is an amazing celebration in an atmosphere tailor made for expessing your inner geek and where getting into cosplay (cos-tume role-play) is the obvious thing to do!

I called this blog Skerricks because it began as a gathering place for me for the bits and pieces (or skerricks) I wanted to record, remember and use in my work as a teacher librarian. Turns out it's useful for others as well. w00t!
