My favorite small con.  It maybe small, but the guest list is impressive if you are into comics, books or art.  It punches above it's weight.

Help put it on.  The first meeting for the 2020 Comic Fest is this Sunday.

12:30 PM Sunday, June 23rd
Mission Valley Branch Library
(near IKEA)
2123 Fenton Parkway
San Diego, CA 92108
