Over the last 10 years, Amanda Bacchi has been immersed in everything that is the world of pop culture, specifically the Australian comic book industry. Starting out on a geeky web series and going on to co-host a live community tv show, she is well known for her passion and depth of research. She has hosted comic book and acting celebrities on stage at Oz Comic-Con, hosted two Australian Comic Arts Festivals in 2016 and 2018, and continues to work with Zombie Walk on the Gold Coast to curate and MC their Halloween cosplay events.
Amanda helps facilitate a monthly Pop Culture Meetup group at Brisbane Square Library, currently into its 5th year, and loves her job at Brisbane Libraries, where she is able to share the joys of reading comics with both young and old.
Amanda was excited to contribute to Black House Comic’s SuperAustralians anthology, providing editorial, script and colour assists on the chapter featuring the Australian comic book The Soldier Legacy, working with The Phantom/Kid Phantom cartoonist Dr. Paul Mason.
