This weekend is a big one for the Melbourne comics scene. Supanova is rolling into town, just in time for Paul Bedford (writer), Henry Pop (penciler) and Tom Bonin to launch the third and final long awaited volume of their psych-horror masterpiece, THE LIST. Paul and Henry will be selling copies at the show, and on Saturday night they will be holding a launch party at Loop Bar (23 Meyers Place, Melbourne) from 7pm.
I’ve read an almost-completed version of the book and folks, it’s gorgeous and disturbing. It has a foreword by, uh, me, but really this book needs no introduction. I reckon that the first two volumes have outsold just every other locally-published comic in the last five years and their popularity is well deserved.
