What’s On: Sep 25 – Oct 1


From Anime and Manga in Darwin’s GeeCon to Agent Carter at Sydney’s OzComicCon to the final of Preacher in streaming with a little bit of horror in cinemas mixed in, you aren’t short for stuff to do! Here is your guide to everything happening this week in Geek across Australia.

1On Streaming/TV

We take a break from the latest releases this week to tell you that this week is the series finale of Preacher! Five seasons in this has been a great series from Seth Rogan (you should also check out The Boys from Seth too on Amazon Prime) but if you haven’t been watching it’s not too late to catch up before the end on Stan Australia on Monday.

2In Cinemas

It’s all about horror in the lead into October with IT Part 2 releasing earlier this month and this week is more to scare with Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Out in cinemas across Australia, this Thursday check back later this week for our full spoiler-free review.

3Stuff To Go Do

And heading around the coastline this week starts in the far north with GeeCon happening this Saturday in Darwin! GeeCon is Darwins own Japanese Pop Culture Con focusing on all things Manga, Anime and Gaming. Drawing its own special guests this is one of our favourites and one you can support by getting there this weekend.

Zipping around the coastline to Sydney is OzComicCon’s continuing tour following on from Brisbane last week. This is everything you know from OzComicCon with a big line up of creators to go with some special guests including Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Laaaaanaaaaaa (Aisha Tyler) but if you want a walkthrough of the Brisbane con we have one of those on our YouTube channel (you should go subscribe!)

And lastly dropping down to Melbourne is the Go Game Market! Retro gaming? Check. Tabletop? Check. Special guests? Also, check. Seeing how this ticks off everything on your want list this weekend the only thing left is you to attend this Sunday at the Collingwood Town Hall.
