ESA ComiCon: All About Telling Stories

Hello. Here's to hoping that you will all be able to join us for our (first) ComiCon event: 

  • Wednesday, October 26th
  • 3:30pm to 8:30pm
  • ESA Library and Mini-Theatre
If you are planning to attend ComiCon, please do pre-register. 
  • We need to have a pretty good idea of our numbers ahead of time so we can plan appropriately. 
  • You can access the form here:
  • Or use the QR code posted below.
Please do invite your friends.  Bring one or two along with you to ComiCon.  They do not need to be ESA students.

This event is free to all, and a light pizza dinner will be provided.
