Wellington City Libraries' ComicFest -- 2-4 May 2019
ComicFest 2019 is nearly upon us, and not even the closure of Wellington Central Library will prevent us from bringing you this veritable cornucopia of graphic delight, for comic book fans young and old. Call comics what you like – sequential art, graphic novels, cartoons, manga – Wellington City Libraries loves everything about this expressive, influential, diverse medium. Our fourth celebration of comics, and local cartoonists, ComicFest 2019, is ready to kick off on May 2 – 4, at the National Library, 70 Molesworth St! With the recent closure of the Central library, the National Library of New Zealand has come to the rescue with a generous, well-timed offer to co-sponsor and house ComicFest in the Te Ahumairangi Foyer, Taiwhanga Kauhau Auditorium, and programme rooms on the corner of Molesworth and Aitken Streets.
Once again, ComicFest will be giving away 1,000’s of free comics on Free Comic Book Day, with the brilliant support of Graphic comic store, who will be providing local sales of cartoonists on the day for the first time. From workshop and panel discussions with leading cartoonists, to costume and drawing competitions, exhibitions and free comic giveaways – there’s something for comic lovers of all ages!
You can find a complete programme of events on the Wellington City Libraries website here. I’ve also listed some of the events your students might be interested in below (there’s heaps more happening on the day!):
