Oni-Con Hawaii

Hawaii’s newest Japanese pop culture convention Oni-Con is set to happen the first weekend in November, Friday-Sunday Nov 1-3.  Oni-Con features the latest in Japanese music, cosplay, anime goods, fashion and more.  Pen & Ink Works along with Hachi Maru Hachi Manga & Short Story Anthology will set up shop in the Artist Alley with a new array of art prints to sell alongside Vols 1 + 2 of HMH’s anthology.  Attention freebie collectors!  Grab an HMH bookmark, choose from one of four designs!

To satisfy your drawing fix stop by our booth and participate in our Infini-Koma or Infinity Panel Manga activity by filling in the gaps from a work-in-progress manga with your own story.  We provide the paper and pencils!  Check out what else will be going on.
