Tampa Bay Comic Con in the Library

Comic Books and American Cultural History, ed. by Matthew Pustz

Are you a comic superfan? Whether you have an encyclopedic knowledge of the Marvel Universe, or you’re just into Game of Thrones (yes, you are), Tampa Bay Comic Con is a fun time for all.

While you get your costume ready, don’t miss the Macdonald-Kelce Library displays, where we have books, graphic novels, photos, and info all about Comic Con and the comic book industry. Comic Cons have become a playground for celebrating everything sci-fi and fantasy, so if you’re more jazzed about Hot Neville than Star Trek, don’t miss it (Aug 3 -5, Tampa Convention Center).

Star trek chronology : the history of the future, Reference, PN1992.77.S73 O39 1993
