Hey kids, comics! The upcoming Amazing Arizona Comic Con has events planned that will appeal to kids of all ages – like a plethora of Walking Dead activities, a screening of “The Image Revolution” film, and attempts by comic creators to break Guinness world records – but all day Sunday, Jan. 26, they will have special focus on the junior set of the comic-fan demographic.
Besides tree decorating, the lights, the food and the spirit - another favorite aspect of the holiday season is the movies. There are so many Christmas movies that can quickly take you back to your childhood, bring tears to your eyes and make the holidays a little brighter.
Every Sunday morning we showcase a classic comic cover, complete with compelling commentary, for your cordial contemplation. It’s the Classic Comic Cover Corner!
