Wellington City Libraries: ComicFest 2021!


Wellington City Libraries is partnering with the National Library of New Zealand to put on ComicFest 2021, the country’s largest celebration of home-grown comics and their creators.


We have the biggest names in NZ’s comic and graphic industry, including Kay O’Neill (The Tea Dragon Chronicles), Jonathan King (The Inkberg Enigma) and Selina Tusitala Marsh (Mophead) joining us for workshops, talks, presentations, meet-and-greets, book signings, panel discussions, live drawing, and more.


As well as all of these exciting events, there is a drawing competition, a cosplay competition, both with heaps of awesome prizes up for grabs, and literally thousands of FREE comics to give away, courtesy of Graphic on Cuba St.
