Event Details

Have you always wanted to attend a Comic-Con event but never had the time or opportunity? Now’s your chance -- show off your fandom with other enthusiasts at the library! 

Wear your best cosplay and participate in fun activities, including Harry Potter wand battles, Magic the Gathering and Pokémon card games, an escape room, a superhero drawing class, and a Doctor Who-inspired sonic screwdriver craft. Attend a panel discussion with Graham Crackers Comics’ Rick Burg, True Believers Graphic Novel Book Club’s Robert Chasteen, and author and professor Brian Cremins about the value of graphic novels and comic books at 11:30. Then get your books signed after the talk! 

Travel to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with a taste of Butterbeer from the 3/7 Pathway Café. Special Star Wars guests will also be available for photos throughout the March 16 event. If that’s not enough, challenge your friends to some classic arcade games from Joliet Pinball in the Youth Program Room all weekend long! Adults, teens, and kids welcome.
