What is Comic Con?
Inspired by the annual mega-event that takes place in San Diego, the LPL Comic Con is a celebration of all things comic book, movie, television, and pop culture! Want to cosplay as your favorite character? Why not? Want to “totally geek out” over the latest issue of your favorite comic? Feel free. No matter your fandom, Comic Con is the place to celebrate it. Costumes are not required to attend this free event, but they are definitely encouraged.
