  • ComiCon-way is this weekend at Faulkner County Library.

COMICON-WAY
3 p.m. Faulkner County Library. Free.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Go cry somewhere else about your mom throwing all your priceless comic books and baseball cards in the trash the minute you turned your back on them for that worn copy of Playboy long about the time puberty hit. Everybody's got that story.

The new news is: that stuff about not being able to turn back time isn't true anymore. Ditto on what your stepbrother said about anybody who wears a Starfleet uniform in public deserving to have their ass kicked. Comic books and other geek fare are big business these days, with comic book conventions in other states drawing tens of thousands.

While Arkansas can't claim one of the big Cons yet, you can come on out to ComiCon-way 2012, which kicks off this Friday at the Faulkner County Library (it opens at 10 a.m. Saturday).

Featuring exhibits and events including a spaceship bridge simulator, items from one of the largest collections of Superman toys in the world, a showing of the Stan Lee documentary "With Great Power," classic arcade game tournaments, superhero mask decorating for the kiddies and much more, it's sure to be a good time.

Best of all: while justice is never free, citizen, ComiCon-way is. More information is available here. So don your tights, shake the cat fur out of your cape and be there. Excelsior!
