The Latino Comics Expo is the country’s first comics convention dedicated to showcasing Latino creators and Latino-themed works The Expo will be held the weekend of October 11 & 12 at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library on the campus of San José State University. The event runs on Saturday from 10am-6pm and on Sunday from 1pm-6pm.   Admission to the Expo is free.

In addition to our two exhibit rooms featuring cartoonists, writers, illustrators, zine makers, book vendors and more, the Expo will feature 2 days of panels, presentations and children’s workshops.  We have been covering the event over the last few months. Since the beginning of the year the Expo has been non-stop making what seems to be almost weekly papalist and workshop annulments.  Below are just some of the most recent announced participates.
