Oak City Comic Show 

When: Sun., Aug. 16 2015



Though Ultimate Comics has a Chapel Hill address, it's positioned to serve the whole Triangle, with its flagship store at the intersection of Highway 54 and Interstate 40. Lately, the comic book retailer and NC Comicon organizer has especially been making moves on Raleigh. This month, Ultimate Comics opened a second location there, at 1301 Buck Jones Road. And now, it's hosting its second one-day mini-festival at the Raleigh Hilton to tide fans over until the annual convention in November. The guest list is small but satisfying, including Jason Latour (artist of Southern Bastards and writer of buzzy Spider-Man spinoff Spider-Gwen) and Durham's Jeremy Whitley (creator of Princeless, recently featured in the INDY comics issue)—not to mention Addy Miller, "the original little zombie girl from AMC's The Walking Dead." There will also be panels, comics and toy vendors and, of course, a cosplay contest, the crucial ingredient that makes conventions fun for casual gawkers as well as committed geeks. 10 a.m.–5 p.m.,

$7 (kids under 12 free), 3415 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh, 919-357-6401, www.oakcitycomicshow.com.
