If you can't make it in person, the excellent Town Hall Gallery curator Mardi Nowak has posted a bunch of photographs here
Below, you can see a sketch made by Bobby. N of the group of happy comickers who turned up for our programs that we ran AT THE SAME TIME as the Grand Final last Saturday afternoon: good timing, eh?
At Bobby's blog you can see pictures of Charles Darwin and Germaine Greer, both of whom turned up to offer testimonials about 'How comics saved their LIFE!' Also featured: Bobby's pictures of the infamous Green Horse of Hawthorn.
The blog also features great news about the upcoming issue of Bobby's comic book 'Digested', which needs to be on your 'must buy' list. All I have seen is the cover, and I know it will be good.
