Boise Public Library Comic Con

Saturday, Aug. 27


As Theodor Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, once said: "Words and pictures are yin and yang. Married, they produce a progeny more interesting than either parent." There's no arguing with the good doctor, and we also think comics creators—as well as animators, anime artists and sci-fi authors—are pretty interesting, too.

Get your fill of comics and comics culture at the fourth annual Boise Public Library Comic Con, featuring panel discussions, a costume contest and comic-themed activities at the Main Library. In keeping with the current craze, the con will also include superhero and Pokemon programs. About 50 writers and illustrators of will set up shop in Artist's Alley at the BPL warehouse across the street, and attendees can peruse the comic book and science fiction sale hosted by the Friends of the Boise Public Library.
