Doujin Overload prove to be a big success this year, with roughly 850 attendants to the event.

Dylan Horrocks was present as the guest artist and published graphic novelist, providing custom signed and illustrated copies of his works. We are very grateful that he was able to attend, and there is a possibility that other artists form the New Zealand Comic Collective may attend the event in the future.

A good variety of work was featured this time around, and reflects the growth of the event towards a greater breadth of material. It was previously decided, partially because of severe advertising and marketing issues, that the event name should be changed to "overload". Some have said that this in itself has no meaning... *cough* Armageddon *cough**cough*... but that has not stopped others from doing this to great success.

The name change will take effect from next year, but all advertising material will be marked "Previously known as Doujin Overload" so that the transition is not too sudden. Personally I'd have liked to have kept the old name, but I was out-voted.

I must also look at changing this website to a different format, it a bit too restrictive for what I'd like to do in the future.
