A cavalcade of characters descended on Dandenong Library for the Dandy-Con Comic Festival on Saturday 27 April.

The CBD was swamped with costumes – from Batman, Superman, Jedi warriors to Cyril Cyborg.

They were there for a dizzying pop-culture carnival featuring graphic novels, cosplay contests, merch vendors, artist showcases, tabletop gamers, comic drawing and Dungeons and Dragons and live performances.
