Returning to Australia for Supanova Comic Con & Gaming is triple threat John Barrowman

Last month as one of Australia’s leading pop culture conventions, Supanova Comic Con And Gaming, wrapped up its final tour for the year, they dropped a huge guest announcement for their next shows in 2018. Following on from that broadcast comes yet another release that is sure to put a smile on Supanova fans dials.

None other than John Barrowman, the all acting, occasionally dancing and often singing superstar would be returning for the Melbourne and Gold Coast events in the new year. Barrowman has appeared at Supanova before, drawing large crowds and having a penchant for building even larger towers of Tim Tam stacks. He’s best known for his role on both Doctor Who and Torchwood as Captain Jack Harkness. But can currently be seen flirting with the mystical and trying to thwart the heroes on Arrow and Legends Of Tomorrow as Malcoln Merlyn.

In good company with the previously announced Peter Capaldi, a fellow Doctor Who alum, the April shows are already looking to be a sure fire bet for all the Whovians.

The pop culture and gaming event will be held across two separate weekends:
Melbourne – April 21 – 22 2018 – Melbourne Showgrounds
Gold Coast – April 28 – 29 2018 – Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
