Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is where many teens first get introduced to comics through the graphic novel and manga collections at every one of our branches.  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!
