Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is where many young people are first introduced to comics through the graphic novel and manga collections housed at each and every branch.  Imagi-Con aims to recognize and celebrate this interest in comics and grow the audience for the genre. 

 

We hope to see you at Imagi-Con!
