  • Kids Comic Con at BCC

    It’s time for you to dust of your crime fighters cape and squeeze yourself into those spandex superhero tights and then join us on Saturday April 22, 2017  for the 11th Annual Kids’ Comic Con at BCC. All aspiring caped crusaders will converge at Bronx Community College’s Colston Hall. The FREE comic book and graphic novel event will be held from 10am to 6pm. Since 2006 BCC has hosted the Kids’ Comic Con as a vehicle for supporting reading, writing, and art in the Bronx. Author and educator Alex Simmons and BCC’s director of Collaborative Education, Gene Adams created the Kids’ Comic Con to provide young people in the Bronx with an opportunity to experience the wonder and fun of the larger costly downtown comic conventions, in a family friendly and free environment.

    Simmons and Adams are supported by a dedicated group of comic book industry professionals who volunteer their time and talent by offering workshop on drawing techniques, writing, and careers in the comic book industry. In addition student leaders from the BCC Office of Student Life clubs and organization will be on hand to assist with workshops, coordinate entertainment activities and assist the many book vendors.

    The universe of comic books today generates billions of dollars from publications, movies, and retail products. Comics have also revolutionized the use of computer graphic technology and created many new and innovative career pathways. The Kids’ Comic Con at BCC encourages young people to explore their artistic passions and possible career opportunities in areas that include; publishing, business, science and technology, and media.
