We’re bringing some shiny goodness to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne! Come and see us to check out “Badger’s Den”, our new Firefly themed social and gaming space! Plus we’re hosting Sci-fi Trivia on Sunday at 1pm on the Workshop Stage (MC’d by Ben McKenzie).

In Badger’s Den you can play Firefly Fluxx, Firefly Cluedo, or Serenity Yahtzee, do some colouring in (for both big and little kids), as well as face-painting and more! Grab some photos against our backdrop, or just take a break and hang out, before checking out all the goodies for sale at the Browncoat Booth!

Free Comic Book Day is almost upon us! Thanks to Boom Studios, there will be a Firefly comic available to collect! Have you locked in your plans to get yours on Saturday 4 May? We’ve been reaching out and have confirmed that the stores below will be stocking it. But get in early, as most have only limited supplies!

Keep checking back as we’ll be adding more to the list as we get news. If you know of other places that are definitely stocking it, please let us know! [Continue Reading…]
