Kids Love Comics at New York Comic-Con- April 18-20, 2008

Kids Love Comics has joined with New York Comic-Con to help make this year's NYCC better than ever, participating in Sunday's KIDS DAY at the show. The New York Comic-Con runs from April 18-20, 2008, at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, in New York, NY, and KLC will be exhibiting the entire weekend at booth #2242. "We were thrilled & honored when they asked us to help design programming for the convention's Kids Day," says KLC Executive Director Karen Gownley. "Our whole mission is to let people know how great comics can be for children - and here was this huge convention looking to share that message, too. It's a win-win."

Working together with kid-friendly publishers, retailers, and others in the industry, KLC put together several presentations and panels which will be a part of the convention's "Kids Day" on Sunday, April 20th.The panels will touch on topics from creating comics, to publishing, marketing, and everything in between.

Also, Kids Love Comics will have a presence in the "Kids' Stage" on Sunday. A "green screen" area will be set-up where kids can get their photos taken in a variety of virtual comic book worlds. KLC members will also be on-hand to offer advice to young cartoonists, talk to parents, teachers, and librarians about the best in children's comics, and detail the benefits of becoming a KLC member.

Additionally, Kids Love Comics is proud to have Scott Sava (Dreamland Chronicles), Josh Elder (Mail Order Ninja), John Gallagher (Buzzboy, NASCAR Heroes), Rich Faber (Roboy Red, Green Lantern), and Jimmy Gownley (Amelia Rules!) appearing at the convention all weekend. Stop by their booths to get some autographs, chat with the artists, and get the latest books from these kid-friendly talents. As an added bonus, KLC will have previews of their Free Comic Book Day comics on display, so fans can get a sneak peak at some of the coolest offerings for next month's awesome event!

Kids Love Comics Booth invites kids (of all ages) to visit booth #2242. KLC looks forward to seeing you in New York! Kids Love Comics is an organization dedicated to promoting literacy (and fun!) through Graphic Novels & Comics. KLC aims to promote quality, age-appropriate comic books available to kids through awareness campaigns, and creator tours & signings that tie in with local education and business communities.
