2018 Event Schedule Finalized

The 2018 MSU Comics Forum schedule featuring our Keynote SpeakersArtist Alley participants, Panel Discusions, and more are completely up-to-date for this year’s event, all of which take place at various times, days and locations surrounding the final weekend of February.  We’ve tried to top ourselves in terms of programming yet again, so I hope you’ll take a moment to familiarize yourself with our keynote speakers and event line-up.

Finally, I’d like to make a brief mention that our venue has changed to the MSU Library and as usual all events are free and open to the public.

Looking forward to seeing you next month,
Ryan Claytor
MSU Comics Forum – Director
