William Shatner Boldly Goes to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne!
Oz Comic-Con Melbourne: July 6
Royal Exhibition Building – 9 Nicholson St, Carlton
9am-6pm, both days
He’s the man with the out-of-this-world fans and it seems that William Shatner is a fan himself… a fan of Oz Comic-Con that is! That’s right, the Shat is coming back! Film and television icon William Shatner will be appearing at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne on July 6 and 7. Beloved for his legendary roles including Star Trek’s Captain James T. Kirk and Boston Legal’s Denny Crane, Shatner was in Australia earlier this year for the extremely successful Oz Comic-Con Perth and Oz Comic-Con Adelaide events.
Not only will Shatner be at the two-day mega-convention, he will also be hosting an exclusive meet and greet put on by event organisers. Plus, dedicated fans can snap up the limited ‘Shatner Experience’ tickets for the ultimate Shatner weekend. The people have spoken and Oz Comic-Con has answered with even more Shatner.
Among the previously announced guests joining Shatner at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne this year are Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Saw, Robin Hood: Men in Tights), Shannen Doherty (Beverley Hills 90210, Charmed), Tia Carrere (Wayne’s World, Relic Hunter) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Patricia Quinn and Nell Campbell (Magenta and Columbia respectively). This is alongside an ever-increasing list of international and local film, TV, animation, illustration and comic stars.
Oz Comic-Con Melbourne will also feature exclusive film screenings, an array of exhibitors and retailers selling unique collectibles and hard-to-find merchandise, comic books and anime, gaming demonstrations, industry masterclasses and cosplay competitions.
