Apr. 23-24: Comics with a Cause in Santa Rosa

Actors, artists and industry insiders will gather this weekend at the inaugural Wine Country Comic Con to celebrate comic books, anime, video games, toys and more. Special guests include Stan Lee’s daughter, JC Lee, actor Steve Cardenas (best known from the popular ’90s show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) and many others. The best part is that all of the proceeds will be donated to the construction of the Early Learning Center for Autistic Children.
