Comic book characters are getting harder and harder to escape these days. Just within the last couple years Hollywood has snatched up many beloved animated heroes, such as the Green Lantern, Thor and the Green Hornet, and adapted them into larger-than-life figures for the big screen. While all the special effects and cinematography make for an exhilarating movie-going experience, it cannot make up for the feel of holding the glossy pages of a comic book in your own hands.
Fortunately there is hope for comic-lovers. Summit City Comic Con is returning to the Grand Wayne Center for its second annual convention on June 18 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.. The 2011 conference will feature over 130 comic book artist and writers with appearances by comic legions such as Denys Cowan, Mike Norton, Sean McKeever, Tim Seeley and Gary Friedrich. Attendees will enjoy a wide variety of comics that fit into all different genres— from crime, horror and fantasy to love stories, comedies and sci-fi, there’s something out there for everyone. Admission to the Summit City Comic Con is $10, and children under 12 will be admitted free with a paid adult. Tickets are available at the door or by pre-ordering at So get suited up, and be sure not to miss out on this year’s Summit City Comic Con!
