Our News In Depth guests tonight are Ron Brister and Mikey Neilson of Rose City Comic Con. Ron’s the founder and director, Mikey’s the programming director. And Rose City Comic Con? Well, that just happens to be one of the biggest pop-culture events in the Pacific Northwest.
Now in its 8th year, Rose City Comic Con’s primary focus is on comics and comic creators. Portland’s blessed to be a hotbed of both. But the event also includes gaming, sci-fi, cosplay, anime, and fantasy. And features celebrity guests from the world of movies, animation, TV, books, and art.
Rose City Comic Con takes place this year from Friday, September 13th through Sunday September 15th at the Oregon Convention Center. And we’re fortunate to have Ron and Mikey (and Ron's daughter Ella), live with us now in the KBOO studios, to give us a preview.
