HAWAIIAN COMIC BOOK ALLIANCE MAKES AMAZING LAS VEGAS THEIR SECOND HOME!
The Hawaiian Comic Book Alliance is a group of self-publishers and industry professionals, working to promote the comic book industry in Hawaii and beyond. We also give support to those interested in all facets of comic book production through our website and Facebook page: www.hawaiiancomicbookalliance.com
The titles from the Hawaii Comic Book Alliance are diverse raging from traditional super heroes, to gothic adventure, to fantasy and family faire, and more. While Doc and Lori Grant sponsored the first official mainland stop for the HCBA, their company Lime Media will be represented by other members of the alliance including Napua Ahina, creator of Lime’s breakout title, Mysterious Things.
