"Remember when comics were only an nickel and read by kids? No? Really?
Well, while comics have grown up and so have their fans, there was a time long ago when all a kid could think of was whether they wanted to spend their allowance on the new Spider-Man or Batman. To rekindle kids’ fascination with comic books and also showcase all the benefits of having a young comic collector in the family, New York Comic Con is proud to present Kids Day on Sunday, April 20!"
The events look super cool. There are a bunch of workshops on cartooning and character creation, with advanced classes for the older crowd. Create your own superhero or supervillain, and learn what goes into a finished comic book.
There’s also a whole host of great activities planned for up on stage, including a Choose Your Own Adventure style comic drawing session, comic book trivia, lightsaber training (can you bring your own?), and something called the Comics Jam:
"A lucky, few budding artists will join some comics legends to draw a comic book live on stage."
Lucky indeed! Maybe they’ll let GeekDads on stage to draw, too. We can only hope.
