Held over two days at various campus facilities and centered around the college's Madigan Library, the first-ever Wildcat Comic Con will feature programming and entertainment for high school and college students who want to enter the exciting worlds of comics and graphic-novel publishing, animation and gaming development.
There also will be professional-development opportunities for educators and librarians to learn more about the use of graphic novels and comics in information literacy initiatives, as well as fan-friendly activities such as superhero panels, anime discussion groups, and "cosplay" (costumed role play) and gaming events.
Career Development: For the student who is considering a career in any of these worlds, there will be speakers presenting workshops on publishing, developing video games, and creating animated features.
Professional Development: For educators and librarians, there will be featured guests speaking on the professional aspects of literacy programs, teaching and learning, collection development, and more.
Award-winning authors will represent the broad spectrum of professional and fan presentations, panels, and workshops.
Fan programs will also feature a wide range of subject areas from superheroes to zombies and all points in between. And there will be costumes EVERYWHERE! All fans are encouraged to dress as their favorite comic or film characters and compete in Cosplay and dance the night away at a Masquerade Party. Spider Man, Thor, Halo, Pokemon, and yes, Star Wars characters will all be featured during this two-day celebration.
