News Oz ComicCon Perth on This Weekend
Oz ComicCon is a pop culture expo covering film, TV, cult, comics, toys, gaming and more. The event runs from Saturday the 9th to Sunday the 10th of March from 9am to 6pm at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Chris Sabat has voiced everything, most famously known as Vegeta, Yamcha and Piccolo in Dragon Ball Z he was also responsible for the ADR direction for the Dragon Ball Z and helped produce many titles that we know and love today. Chris has also voiced Alex Louis Armstrong in Fullmetal Alchemist, Elfman in Fairy Tail, Daisuke Jigen in a series of Lupin the III specials and Roronoa Zoro in One Piece. ANNAU previously spent five minutes with Chris Sabat back in 2009 and can definitely say that his insight into anime voice acting and production is well worth any fan's time.
Paul Eiding has a professional career in writing, acting and directing arching over 30 years. Has performed in almost every acting medium known and played almost every role you could imagine. But you probably know him better as Perceptor in the original Transformers TV series and movie, Roy Campbell in the Metal Gear Solid video game series and the voice of Grandpa Max in the Ben 10 series.
Chris Sabat and Paul Eiding will be holding a Animation Panel at 10am on Saturday on the primary stage, be conducting a Voice Acting Masterclass on Sunday at 10am on the secondary stage and be available for signatures and photos at scheduled times over the weekend.

In addition, OzHadou will be running fighting game tournaments over the entire weekend including Super Street Fighter 4, BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, you can find more information on the gaming competitions here.
Editors Note: ANNAU must state that due to the attendance of William Shatner (Captain Kirk from Star Trek: The Original Series) and Richard Dead Anderson (MacGyver in MacGyver and Jack O'Neill in Stargate SG-1) crowds are more than likely. And there are some concerns considering how Oz Comic Con 's 2012 Melbourne expo was conducted with Patrick Stewart and Stan Lee in attendance. However judging by the floor plan and usage of the Riverside Theatre, Oz Comic Con has taken the consideration on board and improved on their previous events.
