Kids and comics used to be synonymous. These comic book creators want that to be the case once again! By holding a FREE convention these creators want to bring the joy and fun back into comics for kids of all ages! June 12-13 in Dearborn, Michigan...

Here is an excerpt from the press release...

"The Kids Read Comics Convention, a free event promoting comics and graphics novels for kids and teens, moves to Dearborn for its second annual celebration on June 12 and 13, 2010. The event will be held in Dearborn’s Henry Ford Centennial Library and feature over fifty artists and writers who work in comics and animation. These creators will lead a variety of hands-on workshops and participate in panel discussions and presentations aimed at kids, teens, parents, teachers and librarians."

Kids and comics are the focus of this convention so if you have a child interested in art and story telling why not take them to the convention and let them take part in some of the workshops.

"Kids Read Comics co-organizer and teaching artist Jerzy Drozd, some of whose students will be displaying their work at the show, “KRC is about giving everyone the tools they need to express themselves creatively through comics. Even if they never become professionals, they can make artistic creation a rewarding lifelong pursuit.”

So grab your kids and jump into the car and head to Dearborn, Michigan the weekend of June 12/13 and tell em Jahhdog sent ya!
