By Erin White
February 7, 2019
Co-presented by BAM and The Black Comics Collective is this weekend’s BAM Black Comix Expo taking place Sunday, February 10. Dedicated to geekery, comics and graphic novels, the day-long expo is celebrating comics by and about people of color.
Expo-goers can expect to engage in panel discussions, children’s art workshops, meet comic exhibitors, and to show off superhero cosplay. Taking place for the second year in a row, the spirit of the event is to celebrate the increasing demand for diverse representation in genres like sci-fi and fantasy where we see an over-representation of by white characters and shining a spotlight on mega- talented independent comic writers and illustrators. AM Black Comix Expo is a free, but first-come-first-serve event until the venue reaches capacity. More information here.
