10 Free Comic-Con Events You Don’t Need a Badge to Attend

If you’re reluctant to pay money for three-and-a-half days’ worth of claustrophobia inside the San Diego Convention Center, it’s completely understandable. But you really don’t need a badge to officially attend Comic-Con anyway, because there are a number of offsite Comic-Con events that are ancillary to what’s happening inside the halls, which therefore renders them official — at least in our opinion. Not only are these events open to the public, they’re free, and when there is money involved, it’s because you’re at a pop-up shop or merch booth. Some panels cost a few bucks, but that’s just one more reason to stick to events happening outside the confines of the Comic-Con badge zone. Here, it looks like most of your money goes to a good cause and not just a stranger’s wallet.  … Read More

Artists Reimagine Norman Rockwell’s Boy Scouts

Norman Rockwell is best known for illustrating covers of The Saturday Evening Post, but the celebrated American illustrator launched his commercial-art career by designing for the Boy Scouts of America, including covers for the youth organization’s monthly magazine, Boys’ Life, where Rockwell landed a job as art editor at the tender age of 19. During his long and productive career, Rockwell steadily delivered illustrations that have since defined 20th-century Americana, yet many would agree that his work rarely reflects the true breadth of our nation’s diversity — something that’s always been present and, as such, should define the real America — not just the nostalgia-steeped, white-bread variety.  … Read More
