With NYC Comic-Con approaching, comic books are heating up the Big Apple, and Gallatin is joining the celebration. The Offices of Student Life and Alumni Relations have partnered with prominent comic groups to create GallaCon—the School’s inaugural comic book convention.
GallaCon will feature three panel discussions that analyze the intersection of comic books and aspects of contemporary culture. In addition, a small-group workshop open to the Gallatin community will offer the chance for students interested in comic book careers to learn how to break into the field from industry experts.
Embrace your inner nerd and get a unique perspective on comic book
culture. Meet Gallatin alumni who are comic book professionals; learn
about careers in the industry; indulge in food and beverages; and mingle
with enthusiastic fans.
Please note: Costumes are not only acceptable; they are ENCOURAGED. It wouldn’t be a proper comic convention without them.
