Don’t forget your costume | Celebrating local comics and comic creators at Akron Comicon November 6th, 2015 by Bronlynn Thurman Every year, thousands descend upon Akron for the annual two-day Akron Comicon. From old fans to new, Akron Comicon has it all with a goal of keeping newspaper comics and comic books viewed as an American art medium worthy of preservation. MORE: Get all the details at the Akron Comicon website! The convention’s slogan “Fans First! Fans Always!” highlights its desire to keep it all about fans of comics. To do this, they bring in and celebrate creators of mainstream comics as well as independent publishers who are becoming a viable alternative to the mainstream world. This year’s events include panel discussions, comic book workshops and costume contests. Their special guests include Mike Zeck (Master of Kung-Fu), Dirk Manning (Nightmare World), Darryl Banks (Green Lantern), Tom Batiuk (Funky Winkerbean) and Jim Beard (Gotham City 14 Miles) to name a few. Be sure to check it out on November 7-8 at the Quaker Station on the University of Akron campus.
