The inaugural 'Comics on K: NZ Comics Weekend' took place this past weekend, gathering some of NZ's finest local cartoonist at one location for a weekend of cartooning, spirited conversation, exchanging of ideas and occasional sales.
I'll have a write-up tomorrow when my strength returns (turns out sitting around talking comics all weekend takes a lot of energy!) but in the meantime, here's some photos from the weekend to enjoy!
