A busy season is coming up for superheroes and monsters on the island — Comic Con Okinawa returns Oct. 13.

The annual convention at Camp Foster will once again bring fans to celebrate pop culture and comic books with many activities including discussion panels, cosplay contests, live art shows, gaming tournaments, meet & greets, entertainment and more.

Dust off your costume and get ready to enter the cosplay contests, with adult and youth categories. Visit the MCCS website for more on the rules to enter.

Dedicated fans should also plan for the Gold Pass Exclusive Pre-Con Social on Oct. 12. The exclusive event will have special guests, autograph sessions and a grand prize drawing.

This year’s guests include actress Olivia Hack, who voiced for shows such as “Hey Arnold!”, “Brady Bunch”, “Avatar: The Last Airbender”; Cherami Leigh from animation shows such as “Peach Girl” and “Sacred Blacksmith” or the video game “League of Legends”; Meagan Hollingshead, a voice actress from “Pokémon” and “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, and more.

The event is open to local cosplayers and fans as well making it a great opportunity to team up with other super heroes or conspire with fellow comic villains. Mark your calendar!
