It ain't over yet!

The glitz and glam and celebrity guests of the Erics may be over, but Comics Weekend is still rockin' on!

The doors are open today from 10am to 5pm. The NZCC stall is still selling NZ comics including many of last night's award winning comics.

There are two talks scheduled for this afternoon starting at 2pm. First up is Travis Lealand-Maplesden on the translation of bande dessinée, followed by Dick Whyte on conceptual comics and a discussion with Draw, creator of the Eric award winning Web comic Drawing Silence
