South Shore Art Center presents the first South Shore Comic Con on Saturday December 3rd from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM with over twenty comic artists who will be at tables, signing and selling their zines, original art, and talking about the craft of comic book storytelling. Panels and workshops will be in the art Studios throughout the day. The event was initiated by the Art Center’s cartoon instructor Tak Toyoshima, who discovered many of his students had never set foot in a comic book store. Tak is the artist behind the syndicated daily cartoon Secret Asian Man, and is a Hanover resident and his day job is the Creative Director for Rustic Marlin.
Admission is FREE and open to the public. The first 20 kids get a free South Shore Comic Con tee shirt thanks to Goodwin Graphics, the perfect item to get autographed by artists at the show.
