Swan Con Brings Comics to the South Shore on August 26th

The Swansea Public Library hosts a Mini Comic-Con on Saturday, August 26, 2017 from noon till 4:00 PM. Admittance is free, but bring some cash for the various tables. You might find something cool!

What is a Comic-Con? Comic book conventions are events that put people from all aspects of comic book and superhero culture under one roof. Fans can come in costume, get to talk with comic book writers and artists, and check out vendors selling comic book related merchandise. It’s a one stop!

Comic-Cons are also great places to meet other comic fans. Hang out and debate over who’s the better Batman villain, or take pictures with people in costumes. It’s a fun atmosphere to meet fans and comic book folk alike!

He’s also contributed to Image, Dark Horse, and IDW comics, on titles such as Tellos, The Perhapanauts, Savage Dragon, Invincible, TMNT, and Madman.

Manager Pete Beaudoin says, “Some of my favorite comic books are creator-owned because they expose the full range of talent behind the creator. It’s a more intimate look into their process and ideas.”
