It’s that time of year again for the McCully-Moiliili Public Library’s third annual MINI-CON! Much like Comic-Con in San Diego, MINI-CON welcomes people of all ages to come together and revel in his or her shared love for all things comics. The line up for this year includes familiar faces Jon Murakami, Audra Furuichi (co-creator of nemu*nemu), and Kevin Sano who will be on hand to sell their works and meet with fans. New this year is Misty and Alex from Hawaii Reads, a blog centering on the literature of Hawaii.

At 12:00 noon P&IW will be holding a drawing demonstration and talk. Be sure to bring your artwork as group members will be on hand to talk with any interested artists.
