Brainstorm Comics & Gaming is celebrating Free Comic Book Day with Bold Lines: Comic Arts Show!
Local artists have gathered to give their interpretation of the comic characters that inspire them.
For the month of May, your friendly neighborhood comic book store will have an alter ego of an art gallery!
This original art show will open May 5 and 6th (May 5th is Free Comic Book Day).
Camron Anderson, a Frederick local, brings his art to life with ink, watercolor, resin, and wood. Inspired by comic books and horror films, he’s spent most of his life creating creatures and sharing their stories through illustrations.
