The anticipation for Supanova #100 in late 2024 is building, and Supanova Comic Con & Gaming has just dropped a bombshell of a lineup for Supanova #95 in Melbourne (6-7 April 2024) and Supanova #96 on the Gold Coast (13-14 April 2024).

The list reads like a who's who of Supa-Stars, and is set to be an unforgettable experience for pop culture enthusiasts.

Leading the charge is none other than Jodie Whittaker, the iconic Thirteenth Doctor from the legendary series Doctor Who. Whittaker, known for her stellar performances in Broadchurch and BBC One's Time, is set to make a special appearance on Sunday in both Melbourne and the Gold Coast, adding a touch of time-travel magic to the events.

Joining the lineup for the first time is Giancarlo Esposito, celebrated for his role as Gustavo "Gus" Fring in Breaking Bad and Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian. Esposito, a true legend in the industry with over 200 credits to his name, is sure to captivate Supa-Fans with his presence.

Returning to the Supanova stage is the talented Karen Fukuhara, reprising her role as Kimiko Miyashiro from The Boys. Fukuhara, who first broke out as Katana in Suicide Squad, has since become a fan-favourite with her diverse roles in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and the upcoming The Boy and the Heron.

Hogwarts' enchanting Luna Lovegood, Evanna Lynch, is also set to grace the Supanova events.

Lynch, known for her portrayal in the Harry Potter film franchise, has garnered accolades and nominations for her outstanding work, including the IFTA Award for Best Actress in a Lead Role for My Name is Emily.

Voice-acting enthusiasts are in for a treat as Phil LaMarr, the iconic Green Lantern from Justice League and Samurai Jack, makes a triumphant return after missing the previous year's events. LaMarr is joined by industry heavyweights Gregg Berger of Transformers fame and Jeremy Shada, the voice behind Adventure Time's Finn the Human.

Marvel enthusiasts can look forward to meeting international artist Mike Zeck, renowned for his essential Spider-Man and Kraven the Hunter storyline, Kraven's Last Hunt. Zeck will be autographing in both Melbourne and the Gold Coast, with more international comic guests yet to be revealed.

Rounding out the stellar lineup is literary legend T. Kingfisher, the adult fiction pseudonym of Ursula Vernon, creator of the Eisner-nominated Digger and Dragonbreath. Kingfisher, known for her award-winning horror novel The Twisted Ones, promises to bring a touch of literary magic to the Supanova experience.

Admission tickets for these epic events will go on sale closer to the dates in 2024.
