Save the Date: 'Wildcat Comic Con' returning Sept. 28 to Penn College

The second annual Wildcat Comic Con – a much-anticipated festival of comics, animation and gaming – returns to Pennsylvania College of Technology on Sept. 28.

“Having a second Comic Con is due entirely to the success of our 2012 initial event," said Tracey Amey, director of the college's Madigan Library and a member of the Wildcat Comic Con planning committee. "We were able to bring a wonderful array of presenters to the conference, which gave the community an opportunity to see some pretty amazing demonstrations and discussion panels. We’re thrilled to be able to provide that chance again.”

The keynote speaker will be Michael Bitz, executive director of the Center for Educational Pathways, whose Comic Book Project and other endeavors provide a unique outlet for schoolchildren's creative expression. He was invited to this year’s proceedings as he was unable to attend the 2012 event as originally scheduled.

“This year, we want to make it even more fun for attendees, vendors and presenters," said Amey. "We’ve simplified to a one-day conference, made the pricing even more reasonable and we’ll continue to provide the top-notch presenters and panels as we did last year. We’re looking forward to a great conference for everyone from kids to adults.”

Admission to the 2013 Wildcat Comic Con is an all-inclusive $20 per person, with free admission for children younger than 12. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 15 at the Community Arts Center's at https://tickets.caclive.com. The Arts Center, in downtown Williamsport, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Penn College.
