The Virginia Comicon at the Crowne Plaza West 

Saturday Nov. 21-Sunday Nov. 22

For a long time there was a noticeable stigma in associating oneself with the comic-book medium. It was seen as juvenile, a place to which respected writers and artists resigned themselves when their ambitions for literary legitimacy puttered to a halt. Today, comics, graphic novels and the characters they've created have become an undeniable part of modern hero mythology, inspiring all aspects of contemporary culture with films, television — even Pulitzer Prize-winning novels (“The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay,” anyone?). While the coup de grace will always take place in sunny San Diego, for the first time in 25 years Richmond is poised to host its own two-day Comicon at the Crowne Plaza West on Broad Street. Featuring numerous exhibitors, panel discussions and guest appearances by industry writers and artists, the Virginia Comicon begins Saturday, Nov. 21, from noon-7 p.m., and continues Sunday, Nov. 22, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. $10.
