Cortland Comic Con

Are you a big fan of comic books?  If yes, then make sure you attend Cortlands own Heroes and Villains Convention. This year it will be held at 75 E. Court Street, Cortland NY 13045 on April 9th at 10am-4pm.

Not sure what comic con is?   It is a convention that is dedicated to providing the community with comic-book stories and anything game related.  The largest comic con is held in San Diego, during the summer.  It is dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics, and related popular artforms.  The first comic con was in August, 1970, at the U.S. Grant Hotel. Ray Bradbury, Jack Kirby, and A. E. van Vogt were the special guests. Over 300 attendees packed into the hotel’s basement for that groundbreaking event, which featured a dealers’ room, programs and panels, film screenings, and more: essentially, the model for every comic book convention to follow.

At Cortland’s Heroes and Villains Convention, there will be special guests, vendors, and a costume contest!  More information is to come, but click here to learn more about Heroes and Villains Comic Con.
