Panels for the event include Elli Kelley, “From Character to Competition, Cosplay on a Budget,” Infinite Joy Cosplay: “Armor Building, Cosplay, and Makeup.” Workshops include Melinda Shores, the artist for Bark Trek: “How to Digital Comics.”
The Mulberry ComicCon is the brainchild of Keith Pigg, who wanted to help with the library expansion and showcase local writers and artists through literary awareness.
The Friends of the Library in Mulberry organized the event to help pay for the expansion needed at the public library.
