LEI hosts fifth annual Kids' Comic Con
Lake Erie Ink will host its fifth annual Kids' Comic Con on Saturday, March 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At this all-day event, young people will have the opportunity to attend workshops with well-known comic creators.
The event features professional writers and illustrators, with Terri Libenson, cartoonist for the internationally syndicated comic strip "The Pajama Diaries," giving the keynote address.
Workshops will cover the two aspects of comic creation—drawing and writing—and will include the ever-popular “create your own comic character in clay.”
Last year, this one-of-a-kind comic convention for young writers and artists drew nearly 100 kids and teens from as far as Toledo and Western Pennsylvania. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., and workshops begin at 10 a.m. Costumes are encouraged—learn more at lakeerieink.org, or call 216-320-4757.
