The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture invites comic book fans of all ages to participate in its eighth annual Black Comic Book Festival. This community event includes interactive panel discussions, a vendor marketplace featuring exclusive titles by Black creators, a cosplay show, and more. Participants are encouraged to wear their favorite cosplay costumes and to register on-site for the annual cosplay show. They are also invited to contribute to the Schomburg Center’s growing collection of Black independent comic books by bringing single copies of old or new titles from their home collection. All donations will become a part of the Schomburg’s unique and growing archive documenting Black comix and the Black speculative arts movement. Rap icon and comic book publisher Darryl “DMC” McDaniels will be a speaker at the panel discussion “Hip Hop Comics in 3D ”
