Gamers, geeks and comic book fans should head to Warkworth on Saturday, September 28 for a Mini-Comic Con event at the Old Masonic Hall in Baxter Street.
Organised by Warkworth Library to mark Comic Book Month, the free event will feature displays, mini-workshops and costume and drawing competitions.
Star Wars costume group Outpost 42 will be there in their Stormtrooper and Sith Lord outfits, and illustrator Andy Griffiths will be giving tips and advice on comic drawing.
A Magic: The Gathering tournament will be held for teenage gamers and there will be a dress up space and a photo booth, with prizes for the best costume or cosplay outfits.
Senior librarian for children and youth, Heather Jackson, says the Mini-Comic Con will be a free, family friendly event for any kids and teens who are into comics and pop culture.
The event will run from 11am to 1pm and is being sponsored by Matakana Cinemas, Warkworth Paper Plus, Warkworth Costume Hire, Outpost 42 and The Camera Shop Warkworth.
