Connections: celebrating pop culture with 'Super City'

Aug 19, 2019

It’s a bird…it’s a place…it’s Super City! Super City is Rochester’s first annual, multi-venue pop culture event, celebrating comics, anime, video games, cartoons, sci-fi, and pop culture characters (including super heroes!). The organizers of the event say they wanted to expand upon the Comic Con concept by taking it outside a convention center and making it more inclusive. This hour, we preview the Super City events with our guests.
