Cochise College’s Digital Media Arts Club (DMAC), invites the public to the first annual DMAC comic convention on April 7 and 8 at the Cochise College Sierra Vista Campus from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Cochise College Comic Con (C4), will be a multi-genre entertainment convention featuring content from across the spectrum. Panelists and exhibits will represent television shows, movies, comic books, graphic novels, art, literature, anime and video games.

Special guests will include members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Amtgard, the Star Wars 501st, Star Trek USS Coyote and the Bat-car, among others. 35,000 comic books will be on hand, as well as tabletop roleplaying games. A dozen college clubs will exhibit at the event. Lovers of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, steampunk, film and television will be present. Guests will also be able to participate in a costume contest.

Admission will be $10.00 on Friday, April 7, $12.00 on Saturday, April 8, and $20.00 for both days.

All ticket proceeds go toward the cost of the event. All remaining funds will be donated to the Sierra Vista Animal Shelter. Tickets can be purchased at the event or through DMAC officers.

Guests will aid in C4’s quest to bring popular media and themes to southern Arizona and promote the inclusion of such themes and media in the educational process.

Students, employees and community members who are interested in running a booth, panel or exhibit at the event should contact the DMAC adviser. To find out more information contact the Digital Media Arts Club staff adviser, Ron Hyde, at hyder@cochise.edu or check out DMAC’s website at www.cochisecollegecomicon.webs.com.
