Comic Book in a Day

Calling all sequential art and superhero fans for our fourth annual comic book event!
  • Comic Book Challenge: Participating Challenge Artists will complete a portion of a comic book over the course of one action-packed day.  Come watch them in action (free admission) or participate for $20!

  • Comic Book Challenge Awards: Each Challenge Artist will talk about their artwork, the judges will deliberate, and winners will be announced! Who will take home the championship belt this year?

  • Featured Comic Book Artists: Four nationally recognized, professional comic book artists will attend with artwork on display and for sale. They will be creating artwork throughout the day and will serve as judges for the Comic Book Challenge.

  • Just for Kids: Superhero University: Your young superhero in training can earn his or her official certification during Superhero University, a dynamic gathering of Super Experts who, through fun activities, will put young heroes through their paces and, if they prove worthy, will grant them “official” superhero status. This is a chance for your superhero fan to dress up, meet other aspiring heroes, learn some heroic tips and tricks, and enjoy comics-inspired treats and prizes. Let’s hope no villains show up to crash the party! Sessions will take place at 12 p.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. Cost is just $5 for NPArts members/$10 for non-members. Registration information to be posted soon.

  • And More!: Create hands-on comic book-inspired crafts ($5), take home free comic books, purchase comic book artwork and prints, get autographs from artists, and more!
