What's Coming Up In Comics!

As summer approaches, so does our 2nd annual CHPL Comic Con! Last year's inaugural event was a big hit, and this year will be bigger and better. We've got awesome vendors, tons of activities for all ages, art on display, and tons more. In order to get you in the Comic Con mood, we're bringing you lots of exciting news!

The movie world is EXPLODING with superhero movie releases. You've got Man of Steel coming out June 14th, and The Wolverine coming out July 26th! All in all, it's a cinema summer that will be wrought with action, intense stares, and eye candy. While those are just the releases that will be in theaters this summer, there are also plenty more exciting movies coming out as well. The Avengers 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Thor: The Dark World, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, just to name a FEW. Which raises the question, what interesting characters will we see in the future?

There's been quite a stir surrounding this wily duo. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are Magneto's powerful twin children. Quicksilver has the power of super speed while Scarlet Witch has the power of probability manipulation, which is just as cool as it sounds. They've got an origin story of epic proportions, a crazy family, and to top it all off, are hormone-crazy teenagers. So I'm hoping to see something very interesting from these characters when their movies come out. If you're like me and can't wait, come to the library and check out some X-Men graphic novels to get started!

This summer is gonna be super, pardon the pun. So all you have to do is kick back relax, and come to the Comic Con. Bonus points if you suit up.
