I'll be in the KIDS COMIC CON tomorrow, May 11th! 10am-6pm. It's at Bronx Community College 181st St. & University Ave., Bronx NY 10453. FREE ADMISSION!
This year KCC's theme is: Sci-Fact to Sci-Fiction, Where Creativity and Technology Meet. Kids will be able to meet and greet over 30 artists who use different forms of science and technology to create comics, animation, video games, puppets, and more.
KCC 7 Patrolled By NEW CRUSADERS! This year, the creators of Archie Comics’ sci-fi superheroes will be there to answer questions, sketch, and share an inside peek of their creation.
Around The Corner To SESAME STREET! Come meet members of the Jim Henson/Sesame Street creative team. Learn how they work with the Muppets, and much more.
KCC creator and founder Alex Simmons, writer for Archie, Scooby-Doo, Tarzan and oh, so much more, said he’s especially excited about this year’s KIDS COMIC CON.
“Since 2007 our annual event has introduced thousands of kids and families to the power of imagination and creativity,” Simmons said. “Our road shows have traveled from Upstate New York to Miami Florida, to Senegal in Africa. This year, we’re developing programming for students and teachers in the West Indies, and we’ll be screening a documentary about comics in Guatemala.”
KCC artists will also join Ronald McDonald House NY, and others, in its fight for children, against cancer.
“KCC’s primary goal is to promote reading, creativity, and exploration in kids’ lives,” Simmons said. “Now more than ever it is imperative that young people embrace a continuous flow of positive ideas, skills, and outlets for their thinking as well as self-esteem. And this year we’ve found even more people who share these ideas and goals. So come share the day and the magic!”
