CLEARWATER, Fla. – The Clearwater Main Library, 100 N. Osceola Ave., will host a March 29 comics convention from noon to 6 p.m.

The free, family-friendly Comic Con will feature well-known comic writers and artists including Chuck Dixon (Batman, Punisher, the Simpsons), Mike Foss (The Maniacal Smile), artist Austin Janowsky (Iron Man, X-Men, Stanley the Snowman), colorist Justin Ponsor (Ultimate Spiderman, Guardians of the Galaxy, Infinity) and publishers Ben Filipiak and Mike Foss (Fierce Comics).
