Bronx Heroes Comic Con
The Bronx Heroes Comic Con emerged from the art exhibit, "Dream Sequence" which was curated by Ray Felix . It debut at the Longwood Gallery. Dream Sequence was an exhibit consisting of 24 artists, which dealt with Fine and sequential art themes. It incorporated painting and photographs dealing with the dream, the unconscious and comic art. The second tier of the Dream Sequence show was the Bronx Heroes Comic Con which was a one day weekend event at Hostos College. Bronx Heroes Comic Con involved 21 additional artists from the Bronx and Tri-State area. The Bronx Heroes Comic Convention is a free community exhibition designed to bring together the Bronx community and expose them to one of America's oldest art forms in commercial art. Bronx residents get the opportunity to meet and greet with comic professionals who reside in the five boroughs and Tri-state area. Our goal is to attract and educate aspiring artists and writers and create a forum where they can interact with professionals in the comic book field, gain encouragement and make connections towards a career in the comic book art field.
