Well, that is Auckland Zinefest over and out for another year. I was holding it to high standards based on how well the previous year went, and I’m happy to report that it didn’t disappoint! It was busy, interesting, tiring, inspirational and fun all at the same time. I’m always amazed at how fast the space can fill. Takes a good three quarters of an hour before the crowd is really packed in, but from then until the close of the festival it stays consistently busy!
The fun thing about the Zinefest is the diverse crowd it brings in. You get all types of people in there, and being that the whole event is to support self publishing, and the variety of stuff on offer from people, it’s very encouraging to see it so well supported. I had lots of awesome conversations with people this year. One guy went into detail about his dentist who was also named “Adam”. I met a young lady from Calgary, and we talked about Canada for a bit. Saw a few familiar faces from last year too. Also met some people whom I was familiar with online, but had not met face to face. That was really cool too.
All in all, another amazing event. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Hats off to the organisers for putting on an incredible festival.
Now that the Zinefest is over, I’ll be able to make remaining stock of the new comic “ActionMan Adam – First Impressions” available for sale online. I’m in the process of getting this organised now, and I’ll have more information when it is available.
