ComicsLive | A guide to next week’s comic-related events
Welcome to ComicsLive, a guide to upcoming signings, conventions and more. This type of information can sometimes get lost in the archives when it’s posted a few weeks or months ahead of time, so we’ll be consolidating them into one weekly calendar-esque post every Friday and running reminders at the bottom of Kevin’s Comics A.M. posts on the day of the event. Hopefully this will ensure the information is easier to find when you need it.
If you’d like to submit an event for inclusion, please email them directly to me. Please include the venue, city and state, start time, event details and any related websites where we can send folks for more information. Virtual events, like online creator chats, are also welcome.
