Raleigh’s premiere locally owned & operated comic book party is incredibly excited to announce that legendary comics writer Chris Claremont will be at Oak City Comicon on Saturday April 4th!

Known for his iconic runs on both the Uncanny X-Men and New Mutants, as well as introducing complex literary themes into superhero narratives, comics genius Chris Claremont is credited with turning once underachieving comics into some of Marvel’s most popular series.

Additionally, Oak City Comicon is officially hosting the 40th anniversary party for the beloved cult classic film, Flash Gordon! That’s right! And our guests include none other than the man who brought Flash Gordon to life, actor Sam Jones! As well as Flash’s main squeeze Dale Arden, the incomparable Melody Anderson, AND megastar of the stage & screen, Prince Vultan himself, the legendary Brian Blessed. All three will be in attendance ALL weekend to sign autographs and take photos with fans like YOU!

We’ve got something for everyone! Comic book superstars like Justice League writer Robert Venditti and award-winning artist Afua Richardson! Or how about Bob Camp, the creator of Ren & Stimpy! And William Stout, the iconic illustrator and concept artist for such films as the Return of the Living Dead, Men in Black, Pan’s Labyrinth, & Masters of the Universe!

All this and SO MUCH MORE including toys, video games, exclusive art and our fan-favorite cosplay contest make this our GREATEST show ever!
