Event Description

The Schomburg Center’s 10th Annual Black Comic Book Festival returns in an all-virtual format and we will open an exciting new exhibition, Boundless: 10 Years of Seeding Black Comic Futures, that explores the festival’s history and features the Center’s collection of comic books and graphic novels.

Join the excitement online as we mark a decade of bringing together animators, Blerds, bloggers, cosplay lovers, fans, families, illustrators, independent publishers, and writers! Founded by writer Jerry Craft, scholar Jonathan Gayles, educator Deirdre Hollman, and illustrator John Jennings, the Black Comic Book Festival (BCBF) celebrates Black comic books and graphic novels, and provides a platform for independent publishers to get their work directly to readers of color.

Plus, the exhibition, Boundless: 10 Years of Seeding Black Comic Futures, will be on display and open to the public at the Schomburg Center beginning January 14, 2022. Explore our 2022 Black Comic Book Festival site to see our program schedule, get details on our cosplay competition, and learn more about the 10th anniversary festival.

Due to the changing circumstances with regards to COVID cases, this event will now be fully virtual.
