“It was really great, the best part about small conventions is you can spend a lot of time with each person,” Mr Milham said.

“I was at the booth all day doing sketching, people would come up and buy the comic or ask questions.”

Yarrawonga’sLumia Comics had a stand alongside other comic retailers at the event.

Several computers were also set up and connected as a multi-player game.

Mr Milham said it was a positive environment to be part of.

“Alot of people who write or do artwork, hopefully we inspired them to do the same,” he said.
