Events: Cincinnati Comic and Anime Convention

The Cincinnati Comic and Anime Convention at the Radisson Hotel in Covington features a variety of graphic novelists, writers, illustrators and more. There will also be Star Wars toys and action figures. 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday

Meanwhile, at the Radisson Hotel on Fifth Street in Covington, there is a comic and anime convention where novelist and scriptwriter David Mack, illustrator Tony Moore, comic artist Mark Kidwell, graphic novel and Heroes writer RD Hall, great American comic book writer Gary Friedrich (voice of 1985 pop-singing superhero, Jem), Samantha Newark and many more are probably diabolically planning on having a good time. At their tables from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, they’ll be signing autographs and looking to wax intellectual about the practical usage of some of their favorite superpowers. Maybe what a load of crap the Watchmen live action film was or how sweet both Avatar movies could be in the next year? But that isn’t it. What Comic-Con would be complete without Star Wars toys and action figures marbling the décor of the conference hall? Chubby amateur heroes and Shadow Hare will find admission to be $5 each day and kids 12 and under get in free Sunday with a paid adult. Anyone who comes will get a free Kabuki comic and a chance to win a $300 door prize each day.
