Weekdays 3pm to 7pm

Adults, Teens Invited to Join Us Online for Full Day of Celebrating Diversity in Comics

The wait is over! Though it had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 Stay at Home Order, the Third Annual Mid City Micro-Con will still go on … only virtually! Connect with us on the web from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday, August 29, to enjoy this year’s theme “Creating the Future, Expanding Our Universe”, with an all-day virtual event that will celebrate diversity in comic book characters, fantastical worlds, creators, and their fans!

We’ll highlight traditionally underrepresented voices in comics, art, and fandoms through discussion panels, cosplay, workshops, a virtual scavenger hunt, and prizes! Our special guests include Javier Hernandez, Greg Burnham, Henry Barajas, Marcus Williams, Ninja Yoyo Cosplay, Chenese Lewis, Antoine GHOST Mitchell, Gamma Rae Cosplay, and many more professionals and experts from the comics and cosplay communities.

Join our guests for discussions of their work, as well as special panel discussions on worldbuilding, online content creation, representation, and history’s role in the future of comics. There also will be a virtual cosplay competition for teens and adults.
