ROADTRIP: Meet the Power Rangers at this weekend’s Supanova

Have you ever wanted to meet a Power Ranger? What about Chuck Norris? Well, this weekend’s Supanova Comic Con & Gaming event in Sydney is your chance.

We chatted to Power Rangers Karan Ashely Jackson & David Yost who’ll be meeting fans throughout the event at Homebush this weekend and they tell us they’re ready for one hell of a party.

“Meeting fans of this show is one of the best things I’ve done in my career,” Yellow Power Ranger Karan Ashely Jackson told us.

“The fans always know more about the show than us, and we love that” Blue Power Ranger David Yost adds.

Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, a home-grown Australian production showcasing sci-fi, fantasy, comic books, anime, manga, games and cosplay began in Sydney in 2002 and has grown to one of the must attend events every year.

Supanova is a celebration of pop culture created by the Supanova family, for your family, to “bring out the inner geek” in fans of all ages. Something that the stars, like Ashely Jackson & David Yost, who attend look forward to every year.

“These events are not only a chance for fans to meet us, it’s a chance for us to meet the people who have supported us for all these years. A chance for us to say thank you” Karan says.
