World's first comic beer can series release
Stomping Ground and Oz Comic-Con have come together to release the first-ever comic beer can series.
World renowned comic artist and Aussie talent Wayne Nichols, who has drawn for Marvel, The X-Files and Star Wars, to name a few, has created a comic trilogy distributed via beer can.
The three cans tell a unique comic story to celebrate cosplay, pop culture and each of the cities Oz Comic-Con visits - Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
The first limited edition laneway larger was released at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne, which happened in June. The second and third Comic-Can's are being released in conjunction with Oz Comic-Con Brisbane and Sydney and both special edition cans will be available for purchase at their respective events and online for limited time only.
Stomping Ground's Steve Jeffares said it was an exciting moment when Nichols agreed to the collaboration.
"We were very excited and lucky that Wayne liked the idea of telling a simple story over three different editions - Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney - of our Laneway Lager cans. I think he and the Comic-Con team were into the idea as much as we were so it was a lot of fun.
"We love the uniqueness of each of the cans so we're stoked to be sharing them with existing and new fans of our beers. Now that we're releasing the second, third (and final) can editions, they might even become collectibles traded on eBay!"
Here are the dates:
Oz Comic-Con Brisbane - September 22nd-23rd - Brisbane's Convention & Exhibition Centre
Oz Comic-Con Sydney - September 29th-30th - Sydney’s ICC in Darling Harbour
