In spite of the high temperature, hundreds of (perspiring) people braved the heat on Aug. 29 and trekked to Boise Public Library dressed in costume—the Klingons and Stormtroopers must have been soaked—to take part in the third annual Library Comic Con. The young event was a success right out of the gate, and each year it gets even better with more speakers, creators, vendors and interactive activities added to the program. This year, more people dressed in costume so the sidewalks were awash in tiny toddler superheroes, anime and manga characters, and TV and movie icons—including one incredibly well-crafted AT-AT Walker. The addition of a stunning commemorative Library Comic Con poster by artist (and former Boise Weekly graphic designer) Adam Rosenlund was such a great idea, we're wondering how the Library will top itself next year.
