It was a great weekend, with our biggest turnout ever! As such, it was a pretty busy weekend for me and I didn't get to take many photos during opening hours, but I'll share a few that I do have.
How busy was it..?
• The Artists' Ally list was the longest at Supanova ever.
• The exhibitor list was the longest at Supanova ever.
• The Supa-Star guest list was the longest at Supanova ever.
• Sunday was the biggest Supanova Sunday ever.
• Saturday was the biggest Supanova DAY ever.
• The weekend was the biggest Supanova ever, with 28,400 fans, nerds, geeks, collectors and aficionados in attendance!
It was awesome.
Full disclosure: I'm one of the founders of Supanova, art direct it, and have a financial stake in the business.
Friday night, and it all begins…
Friday night is Preview Night for weekend pass holders, and at the Opening Ceremony there was a rousing chorus of 'Happy Birthday' in honour of Supanova's 1oth anniversary.
Many of our guests were on stage there, and so was Supanova Actual Daniel Zachariou.
Friday night also saw a comic book masterclass given to an attentive audience by the erudite and articulate, as well as incredibly talented, David Mack.
Saturday morning found Sydney under a slightly drizzly sky, and so Supanova allowed the masses of crowds to wait in a 'holding bay' instead of outside in the rain. I stitched three photos together to show the enormity of the numbers. Can you count all the Pikachu onesies?!?
We had some wonderful comic book guests. In these two shots, from left to right, there's Kara and Tony Moore, Jim Cheung, David Mack and Nicola Scott.
Speaking of comic book artists, Artists' Alley was huge. Here's a shot of one of the three packed AAs.
Three photos stitched together for this panoramic view of the exhibitor floor.
Some of the wonderful crowd.
And some more.
While an enormous and enthusiastic audience listened to Christopher (Back to the Future, Addams Family, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) Lloyd…
Thanks for turning on the beautiful Sydney weather for Sunday, Olympic Park!
See ya next year!
