This fun-filled day—co-presented by BAM and the Black Comics Collective—is back for year two, celebrating comic writers, illustrators, and creators of color. Meet the next generation of black superheroes, hear a panel discussion about women and Afrofuturism, participate in a children's art workshop, take part in a superhero cosplay showcase, and so much more.

The BAM Black Comix Expo demonstrates the demand for diversity and representation across sci-fi and fantasy genres by presenting a range of acclaimed independent comic writers and illustrators, as well as the freshest emerging talent.

All events are free and open to all ages.
