Jan. 30: Illuminating Art in Petaluma

Last year’s inaugural LumaCon was a massive gathering of comic book artists and authors mingling with local youth and families. It was such a huge success that LumaCon is back for a bigger and better second year. Panel discussions on comics as literature and a focus on women as artists and writers will accompany dozens of artists displaying their work and meeting with fans, crafty activities, cosplay competitions and more, with several local vendors and exhibitors like Copperfield’s Books and the Charles M. Schulz Museum in on the fun. LumaCon leaps off the page on Saturday, Jan. 30, at Petaluma Community Center & Lucchesi Park, 320 N. McDowell Blvd., Petaluma. 10am–4pm. Free admission. lumacon.net.
