This spring, the Minnesota Comic Book Association (MCBA) will be celebrating its 25th year. As usual, the Comic Book Carnival will be a huge spectacle honoring all forms of comics, from local startups to giants like Marvel. During the weekend, over 250 creatives — including authors, inkers, and illustrators — will be on hand to sign copies, chat with fans, and look at portfolios. Talks and workshops from experts on the industry will also be offered both days. Costumes are always encouraged, of course, and there are even some prizes to be had for best getups. Groups on hand this year include Arkham Asylum, MN Superheroes United, Lego architects from TwinLUG, and the Central Garrison, the local chapter of an international Star Wars costuming club.
