Sydney Writer’s Festival

The Sydney Writer’s Festival in Australia will feature a panel titled Australian Graphic, and bring in special guest Simon Hanselmann (Megahex), as well as Australian artists Nicky Minus, and Lachlon Conn. Description from the website: “Exciting things are happening in Australian alternative comics. Join graphic novelists Simon Hanselmann, Nicky Minus, Lachlan Conn and Leigh Rigozzi for a series of visual readings from their diverse and idiosyncratic illustrated narratives. Hear tales of stoner witches, beautiful cannibals, failed relationships in Inner West pubs and masturbation fantasies set to the music of The Strokes.”
