I’ve noticed (through the power of google analytics) that quite a few people have found my website while looking for comic workshops in Canberra. I don’t live in Canberra anymore, but I am happy to help you find local comicers if you need someone.
Impact Comics might be able to help you as well, I’m sure they’ll do their best. They are a wonderful comics store in Civic (right near the chessboard) who really support independent comics and local creators. They’ve organised events like Women in Comics as part of International Women’s Day, hosted events during Canberra Living Artists Week; and looking at their website I’ve just found out they hosted an event for OtakuFest. I highly recommend going to them as a first port of call for anyone interested in comics in Canberra.
And Yes they do host Free Comic Book Day. A lot of Canberrans I know assume Free Comic Book Day does not come to us… well it does! Remember to get your free comics on 1 May.
Oh dear, you can see how enthusiastic I get when I’m talking about Impact Comics, I can’t help it. They’ve earned my love with a great store and great conversations. As a comic creator, having a good retailer who you can chat about the business (and art) with is a wonderful thing.
Happy comic creating and Happy New Year
