West Coast Avengers Initiative joins FCBD Mini-Con 2015

Note: Get the full lineup of FCBD Mini-Con 2015 guests here. Free Comic Book Day Mini-Con is this Saturday, May 2. Doors open at 9 am. We're giving away 20,000 free comic books. At the Mini-Con, West Coast Avengers will be selling raffle tickets for an amazing prize package. All proceeds will benefit Shriner's Children's Hospital of Northern California.

The West Coast Avengers, a non-profit costuming group, provides a "collective identity" for Marvel Universe fans to create, own, and wear their favorite film, comic, and television hero costumes. 


With a focus on fun and creativity, the group encourages members to "capture the magic" of Marvel by portraying accurate representations of various characters through individual costumes. While allowing for some "creative modifications," the group holds itself and its members to child-appropriate and family-friendly portrayals. 

The West Coast Avengers puts its costuming and creative talents to work in the community through various fundraisers, charity work and volunteerism. Last year at FCBD, "California's mightiest heroes," raised money for Shriners Hospital for Children. We're thrilled to announce that they'll be on hand this year to do the same!
