Stormtroopers will be marching into the Menlo Park Library May 13. Those Star Wars characters, and more, will be on-site for the library’s second Comic Con, a free-admission celebration of comics, sci-fi, games and movies.  Menlo Park Comic Con will take place from 3-7 p.m. at the Main Library.

Comic Con attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite comic, sci-fi, video game or fantasy characters. A cosplay contest will allow participants to show their handiwork & vie for prizes. Educators & artists from the Walt Disney Family Museum will guide participants in drawing their own comic pages. Attendees can also explore an artist & vendor alley of original art, books and more. The Comic Con’s free photo booth will provide attendees with a souvenir of their visit. The event will also feature live music, film screenings and a family game area.

Star Wars characters will appear courtesy of three tribute groups dedicated to the film franchise: The 501st Legion's Golden Gate Garrison; The Mandolorian Mercs Wolves of Mandalore; and the Coruscant Temple of The Dark Empire.
