Taking Flight Comic Book Show 10

When: Sat., July 18, 12-5 p.m. 2015

For the past two years, Jerry Lahm from Park Circle Comics and Cami Kind from The Sparrow have been periodically — five times a year, actually — teaming together to produce this comic book shindig. “Think of it as a mini comic book convention,” Lahm says. The idea sprouted from the need for more comic-related events in the Charleston area, and the shows now act as an outlet for artists. “Well, to pat ourselves on the back, we have done nine of these and each one has been a success, so we must be doing something right,” says Lahm. Fan-girl (or -guy) over guests like Albert Capitan from Apartment A Comics, Mia Chavi Jenkins-McCulley from MiaChavi Geekery, Hart Jeffers, artist Tony Mingacci, and City Paper’s own cartoonist Steve Stegelin. The crew from Run Riot Media are also coming out to share their fresh off the print comic, SOL, which follows odd couple Jane and Helen in their time-travelling adventures. While the shows are free, a $5 donation is suggested at the front door. The donations will go to this years chosen charity, the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston.
