Fans of zines, graphic novels, and independently-produced comics won’t want to miss Genghis Con 2012. We’re not talking Marvel Comics here. We’re talking about a group of Rust Belt writers and artists who, for the last four years, are trying to make plain the abundance of talent in this area. As they so eloquently put on their website, “Cleveland is a city steeped in tradition, both as a general rule and with a rich history of comics and storytelling. Genghis Con aims to channel that strength, and continue the legacy by making a contribution to promoting Cleveland as a cultural hot spot and destination for lovers of all things COMICS.” If you love independent, underground art, don’t miss this event! Genghis Con’s goal is to provide a venue for our visitors to discover surprising new cartoonists, and foster an environment for an open exchange of artwork, ideas, and dialogues. The convention runs from 2 - 7 pm; the bands listed above start at 8 pm. Don’t forget the Beachland’s Brunch right next door running from 11 - 3!
