Meet the Creators of
"For the Love of Comics"

December 11th at 11am we had our first virtual panel of Lumacon 2022! After last year's Lumacon we had a special workshop run by Gio Benedetti to create a comic anthology. Teens from all over Sonoma County participated in the workshop to create "For the Love of Comics", which is being sold to support Lumacon!

We gathered all of these wonderfully talented people together again to talk to you about their work, the process, and why they love comics!


You will be able to view the panel on the day of LumaCon!

Read more about the project in an article done by the Press Democrat, November 5, 2021.

Find the comic to purchase at Gio Benedetti's store.

And keep an eye out for the LumaCon panel on the LumaCon!Online page.

Thanks to the Friends of the Petaluma Library for supporting this project.

Live Q&A with the Rebel Legion

The Rebel Legion is an international Star Wars costuming organization created by, of and for people interested in creating costumes from the Star Wars mythos."  Every year we are privileged to have this group participate in our Lumacon Event and this year they've agreed to do a question and answer panel for the online portion of the event. They will talk about what the Rebel Legion is, who the local chapter is (Endor Base), and a bit about how to get into it along with some discussion of types of costumes and how their built.  Register to join the fun and may the force be with you!
