RodCon: Rod Library's Mini Comic Book Convention

Rod-Con 2019


Wearing a costume makes it a more fun day for all! We encourage you to dress as your favorite comic book/anime/manga/sci-fi/movie/game/series character!  

Capes, Wands, Crafts, and more!

Can't wait until April 13th?  Join us for some pre-con workshops to get you ready for the big day!

Speakers and panelists this year are focusing on Anime, Gender in Comics, How to be a Stormtrooper, 3D printing tips, Comics in the Classroom, Black Panther and Beyond discussion, and how to play Pokken. We hope you will check them out!

Book Bistro in the Library will be open as soon as you arrive this year.  If you are feeling adventurous, their are several dining opportunities within walking distance of the Library.

We have UNI Pep Band, University of Iowa Quidditch team, UNI Swordfighting Club, Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society Potions Class, and the Des Moines Science Fiction Society on hand throughout the day to demonstrate their crafts.

Stay tuned for Trivia information.
