Goulburn Comic Con is one of the biggest events on the calendar Goulburn Mulwaree Library manager Erin Williams says, and it is not to be missed. 

This will mark the events second year, drawing up to 700 people in 2015. 

“There is something for everybody,” Ms Williams said. “There will be no cancellation - rain, hail or shine.” 

The day will feature pop culture activities and stalls, but will also include hand made jewellery, art and local comic artists. 

The cosplay competition, a main attraction of the day, will have four categories opening to infants, teenagers, adults and groups. There will also be a Harry Potter lolly bar and numerous food stalls for guests to choose from. 

“There will be events for all ages,” she said. 

Organised by the Goulburn Mulwaree Library, conversations surrounding events and guests begun in last November after the Reader Writer Festival. 

Cosplayer Rae Johnston will be joined by Andrew Lutomski who will play Thor of Oz on the day. 

Ms Johnston, who will come as Wonder Woman, says it is important to meet people that share the same interest as one another. 

“I think its important to have access to Comic Con no matter where you live,” Ms Johnston said. 

“I enjoy hitting up the more regional conventions. There’s lots of hidden talents that you don’t really see in the city.

“Everyone’s so friendly, and there is a fantastic atmosphere. Regional shows are extra special.” Goulburn Comic Con will be held at the Veolia Arena on March 18.
