Kids Love Comics at New York Comic-Con!
April 18-20, 2008
KLC has joined with New York Comic-Con to help make this year's NYCC better than ever, participating in Sunday's KIDS DAY at the show.
"We were thrilled & honored when they asked us to help design programming for the convention's Kids Day," says KLC Executive Director Karen Gownley. "Our whole mission is to let people know how great comics can be for children - and here was this huge convention looking to share that message, too. It's a win-win."
Working together with kid-friendly publishers, retailers, and others in the industry, KLC put together several presentations and panels which will be a part of the convention's "Kids Day" (Sunday, April 20th) http://www.nycomiccon.com/app/homepage.cfm?moduleid=4524&appname=100453&campaignid=61372448&iUserCampaignID=38193330
The panels will touch on topics from creating comics, to publishing to marketing, and everything in-between.
Also, Kids Love Comics will have a presence in the "Kids' Stage" on Sunday. A "green screen" area will be set-up where kids can get their photos taken in a variety of virtual comic book worlds. KLC members will also be on-hand to offer advice to young cartoonists, talk to parents, teachers, and librarians about the best in children's comics, and detail the benefits of becoming a KLC member.
Additionally, we are proud to have Scott Sava (Dreamland Chronicles), Josh Elder (Mail Order Ninja), John Gallagher(Buzzboy, NASCAR Heroes), Rich Faber (Roboy Red, Green Lantern), and Jimmy Gownley (Amelia Rules!) appearing at the convention all weekend. Stop by their booths to get some autographs, chat with the artists, and get the latest books from these kid-friendly talents. As an added bonus, KLC will have previews of their Free Comic Book Day comics on display, so fans can get a sneak peak at some of the coolest offerings for next month's awesome event!
Please be sure to come by the Kids Love Comics Booth #2242. KLC looks forward to seeing you in New York!
