East End Street Market Hosts First Annual East End Comic Fan Festival

Live art demonstrations, local food trucks, and a cosplay contest were just a few of the highlights of the East End Street Market’s 1st Annual East End Comic Fan Festival. Vendors displayed rare and unique comic books and figurines while artists were hard at work producing comic fan art on site as well as offering one-off pieces from their portfolios.

Market Manager Roy Rodriguez is hopeful the event will continue as a yearly East End highlight based on this year’s success.
