Here at a high school radio station, the most popular subjects to talk about are anything and EVERYTHING pop culture. From the most entangling tv shows to popular movies, you can bet that someone here at the Pulse is talking about it. So you can imagine our excitement when we say the the South Carolina Comicon is coming to the TD Convention Center in a week!!!!!!!
Today we had a special guest in the studio: Robert Young, the Director of SC Comicon. He was happy to chat with all of us about our station as well as everything he does with Comicon. The Pulse is happy to announce that we will even have a booth set up during Comicon next Saturday-Sunday (March 25-26), so you should all come and see us there!
In case you are confused or have no idea what all Comicon entails, here's all you need to know:
Tickets cost $17 for Saturday, $12 for Sunday, or $24 for both
There will be costumes EVERYWHERE! The costume contest will be at 3:30 on Sunday.
Special Guests include: Neal Adams, Chad Bowers, Frank Cho, Tom Cook, Jeff Dekal, and a ton more!
There will also be celebrity panels, gaming tournaments activities for the kiddos, and more!
Now let's talk about charity. During Comicon there will be this thing called a Drink & Draw (sounds bad but alcohol is not a part of this equation). This is where artist from around the country will sit down and begin to draw things together. Then, their finished artwork is set up on a table for auction. ALL ARTWORK IS AUCTIONED OFF THEN AND THERE. So you could get a piece of art by a famous artist for as much as you are willing to bid! Wanna know the awesome part? ALL the money raised during this Drink and Draw will be split between two organizations: The Hero Initiative (an organization that provides for comic artists in need) and Team Cul de Sac (an organization that raises money/awareness for Parkinson's Disease). So when you think you're buying a really cool piece of artwork, you're actually helping others in need, isn't that great?
All these are awesome reasons why you should come out at see us at Comicon next weekend! You won't regret it.
