Durham Comics Fest 

When: July 6-10 2016



As is apt for a kid-friendly, community-focused festival dedicated to comics and graphic novels, the main event of this year's Durham Comics Fest will take place among the stacks at 3605 Shannon Road on Saturday. There will be a comics swap, an artist alley lined with local creators, and workshops with estimable guests like Keith Knight (The K Chronicles) and George O'Connor (The Olympians). But this year, the festival also spills tendrils of ink outside of the library. It begins with a meet-up for local creators at Atomic Empire (Wednesday, July 6, 6 p.m.) and continues with a drink-and-draw event at Cocoa Cinnamon's Geer Street spot (Friday, July 8, 7 p.m.). It concludes back at the library with a screening of Dear Mr. Watterson (Sunday, July 10, 3 p.m.), a loving documentary about Calvin and Hobbes creator Bill Watterson, whose timeless work is a perfect argument for the emotional appeal of sequential art for people of all backgrounds and generations. —Brian Howe
