Here is a little history of the Latino Comics Expo:
The Latino Comics Expo is the country's premiere convention dedicated to showcasing the Latino experience in comic books and related arts by gathering a wide spectrum of Latino creators, as well as works featuring Latino themes and culture.
Founded in 2011 by Ricardo Padilla and Javier Hernandez, the LCX began as an annual event at the world famous Cartoon Art Museum in San Francisco, CA.
There will be panels with the creators, animation screenings featuring independent filmmakers and workshops for children on cartooning and comic book creation. The MOLAA's spacious Balboa Studio will host a marketplace featuring over 3 dozen artists and creators selling their comics, graphic novels, artwork and other merchandise.
The Expo is open from 11am-5pm on Saturday, August 17 & Sunday, August 18. Admission to the Latino Comics Expo is included with paid admission to the MOLAA.
Saturday pricing as follows:
General Admisson $9.00
MOLAA Members FREE
Children under 12 FREE
Sunday admission if FREE to all attendees
So after checking out all of the above... It should be a fun weekend at this Latino Comics Expo!
