Much like the Hulk, Amarillo’s only comic book convention is growing rapidly this year. Ama-Con – set for Saturday in Amarillo Civic Center’s Heritage Ballroom and Regency Room, 401 S. Buchanan St. – will bring together fans of comics, anime, steampunk and other genre fiction in an event sponsored by Amarillo Public Library and Friends of the Library.

“We’ll have 72 booths this year, which has basically doubled our booth space,” said Amanda Hope Shelburne, assistant coordinator of youth services for the library. “The response has been amazing (for booths). It started the day after the event last year, really.”
