NC Comicon | Special Events | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Nov. 5-6 2011

Pow! Zap! Onomatopoeia! The second year of NC Comicon includes some of the biggest names in comics, among them Howard Chaykin (American Flagg, Avengers 1959), Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies), David Lafuente (Ultimate Spider-man, New Mutants) and Skottie Young (Wizard of Oz). Discussion panels include "The History of Comics," "Collecting Comics," an academic roundtable featuring comics studies scholars from Duke and UNC, and several Q-and-A panels involving the invited guest creators. The event also features costume and art contests, as well as a dealer market and gaming tournaments in Magic & HeroClix. The show runs 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. An $8 pass is good for both days. (Disclosure: The ubiquitous Indy contributor Zack Smith assisted the organizers of this event.) —Gerry Canavan
