After a few weeks of rumours that Oz Comic Con was planning to scale back its convention schedule for 2018, we finally have confirmation that the pop culture event will only be hitting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne next year. Here’s everything we know.
Rumours that Adelaide and Perth would no longer have an Oz Comic-Con event started when vendors apparently received cryptic responses to their applications for next year’s events. Today a post on Oz Comic Con’s Facebook page confirmed it.
However cosplayers at least will still have something to look forward to — Oz Comic-Con will still be hosting the Perth and Adelaide rounds of the Australian Championships of Cosplay next year, though it’s as yet unclear as to what format those events might take.
Oz Comic-Con first came to Adelaide in 2012 for its very second show, before the event was acquired by ReedPOP. Perth was the location of the convention’s fourth show in 2013.
