This Sunday, September 13th, the World of Comics Exhibit at the Belton Museum opens - and I'll be there at the kickoff event! OtherRealm Studio will be offering face painting, cosplay accessories, and a demonstration, and other attractions include a costume contest, superheroes in costume, graphic novel signing, and other vendors with superhero-themed merchandise.
This exhibit features the art and artifacts of Dave and Paty Cockrum - Dave is best known for his stellar run on X-Men and the creation of well-known characters such as Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus. He also designed and updated several well-known heroes' costumes and character designs.
It's a free, kid-friendly event and promises to be fun and educational. Here's another article about the exhibit. The exhibit will be open until December 19th, but the kickoff event is only on Sunday.
The address is 100 N Main St, Belton, South Carolina 29627, and the event runs from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
First up, Penance Copper - a graphic narrative about a girl with superpowers trying to turn her life around.
