We of the Western side of Australia have decided to hold a get together for webcomics in our sunny capital of Perth.

Grug and Me’self will be there, but if you create or read webcomics, feel free to rock up / bring friends. No discrimination against media so comic artists are welcome.

When: Monday the 8th of August @ 7:30pm
Where: Fast Eddy’s Cafe. Cnr of Milligan and Murray St Perth

Hope to see you there! Continue Reading
