In partnership with the City of Lockport’s Summer Art Series and Amazing Fantasy Books and Comics, the White Oak Library District is pleased to present Comicopolis – its 3rd annual FREE comic convention – on Saturday, August 5, 2017, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at the White Oak Library District – Lockport Branch. Last year over 30 vendors and exhibitors sold their art, comics, figures, and prints. This year will be bigger and better! We are expanding outside to allow for more exhibitors, food, and fun. Dressing in costume is encouraged! Contest for best dressed in several categories. Photo opportunities, free giveaways, a photo booth, workshops, Podracing, a Jedi Academy, and crafts for kids will round out the day.
We are very excited to announce our special guest for this year: Fred Van Lente, award-winning comics writer!
Comicopolis brings an amazing array of authors, illustrators, publishers, and vendors each year to delight our fans. Stay tuned as we launch our line up throughout the season!

Comicopolis offers a variety of entertainment options throughout the day ranging from crafts and cartooning to DIY cosplay and costume competitions.
