April Event Schedule
Neighborhood Comics is proud to present its schedule of events for April, 2022. After an extended period of eschewing in-person events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the store is thrilled to open its doors and expand its educational and entertainment endeavors beyond in-store and online shopping.
“This extended period of uncertainty has hit small businesses like ours hard,” says Lee Heidel, owner of Neighborhood Comics. “We are able to exist solely because of the community and their appreciation of the comic art form. These events are a small way of repaying that support, kindness and consideration.”
All events will be held at the store’s 1205 Bull St. location except where noted.
