More sad news for fans… the Whedonverse convention which was to take place in Sydney on July 7 and in Melbourne on July 8 has been cancelled.

According to an annoucement today from The Hub Productions:

Unfortunately, due to a variety of circumstances, we are being forced to cancel our Whedonverse event. All ticket holders have been contacted; if you haven’t heard from us and you have tickets, please get in touch. On the plus side for that event, Julie Benz has been able to reschedule and will now be attending Oz Comic-Con Melbourne instead!

While this is sad news for this event, Melbourne fans will be able to meet Julie Benz a week early at Oz Comic-Con as she joins Sean Maher and other guests.
