So grab your favorite illustrated characters and go meet up with like-minded people about all things comics. On Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10am to 5pm join in on the fun yourself at the Metropolis Resort. The Eau Claire Comic Con will cater to fans of all varieties of comic-related swag, including toys, monster models, collectables and, of course, the books themselves. The whole day is packed with guest artists and comic creators including Steve Kurth, artist for comics such as X-Men and Iron Man, Christopher Jones, who has worked with Marvel and DC, sculptor Tim Bruckner, and Mark Lone, as well as a plethora of creators from ANA Comics, an independent comic studio that began in 2009.
