The annual Black Comic Book Festival returns in January, this time virtually, and expanded from two days to four, all celebrating the rich tradition of Black comix with FREE panel discussions, film screenings, exhibit tables with top comic creators, comic book giveaways for kids and more.
The 9th Annual Black Comic Book Festival is January 13-16, it’s FREE to attend, and includes a tribute to Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, a workshop with Tim Fielder and his upcoming release INFINITUM, and launch event for Megascope with Jon Jennings, and more.
Since cosplay is also virtual this year, participants are invited to upload images or videos of their costumes. Thursday, Jan. 7 is the last day to do that.
Submit your great comic, super hero or Afrofuturist costume 15-second video to the organizers.
While it is FREE to attend, registration is required.
The 2017 event drew close to 12,000 attendees, connecting diverse comic readers, creators, bloggers, nerds, independent publishers, and collectors of all ages. So registration is absolutely recommended.
The Schomburg Center is part o the New York Public Library system, located at 135th St. and Malcolm X Blvd., steps from the 135th St. station of the 2 and 3 subway lines.
