Central Coast Comicon to return in May

Comicon Gosford 2018

Regional Youth Services most heroic fundraising event of the year, Central Coast Comicon, will return to Gosford Showground on May 5.

A cast of characters will highlight and bring attention to this major event, a fundraiser for NSW Service of the Year, Regional Youth Support Services (RYSS). This is the second year RYSS is delivering Central Coast Comicon, and the 2018 event promises to be bigger and better.

“Aside from comics, the other aspect of being at Comicon is the fun and interesting activities, panels, VIP appearances and the range of family friendly pop culture, including anime, independent authors and zines, interactive gaming, and dedicated kids zones,” said Central Coast Comicon spokesperson, Mr Chris Holstein.

“For those car enthusiasts, we will have a range of cool muscle cars on site to add spice to the event. “Fans can get up close and pose for photos. “Adding our Cosplay Zone to our already established gaming, authors, artists and merchandising zones is a step into a new and improved Comicon, with the team working hard to bring even more interactive elements to our event, such as yummy foods, local artists and designers, dedicated market shopping zones and a variety of diverse merchandisers,” Mr Holstein continued.

“We team up this year with the amazing Sons of ObiWan Light Sabre Academy to bring you Barter Town, the exciting remote market-town outpost, situated in the midst of Central Coast Comicon, which contains apocalyptic themed stalls, activities and design. “The Central Coast is home to a lot of Mad Max stars, and we have them at Central Coast Comicon. Come pose with, and meet and hear stories of, some of the number one on-screen baddies and villains,” Mr Holstein concluded.

On March 15, visitors of the Imperial Centre, Gosford, were treated to a special sneak peek of some of the magic of Comicon when a range of DC heroes, Disney Princesses and Star Wars characters visited centre court along with a range of other cosplayers.
