Pekomik Convention and Awards 2009

15 Apr

With the success of their previous year’s event, Pekomik is now back with its ‘Pekomik Convention and Awards Ceremony 2009’ or more fondly referred to as the Pekomikon (Pekomik + Convention, geddit?).

Event flyer taken from the Pekomik blog.

The details of the event are as follows:
Date: 25th April 2009 (Saturday)
Place: Kedah/Johor Hall (Dewan Kedah/Johor), lower floor, Putra World Trade Center
Duration: From 10am to 7pm
Extra: As far as I know, entrance is free. Other activities (seminars, workshops, sales booths and more) will be ongoing at the same time as the panels take place throughout the day. The itinerary of activities for Pekomikon 2009 are given below (taken and translated from the Pekomik blogspot page. The activities are subjected to change according to the respective artist’s work schedules.)

Phew, that is one exhaustive list for sure! As usual, my life as a student clashes with all the comic events happening in Kuala Lumpur. The last paper for my finals falls on the 26th so I won’t be able to attend this event…*sigh* Most of the panels sound interesting, and you can’t really go wrong with one of the more notable non-corporate comic events in Malaysia. I’m sure the organizers of Pekomikon will appreciate the support!
