On the Radar: Tampa Comic Book and Toy Convention

Welcome to On the Radar, where we preview upcoming events to mark on your calendar.

They're morality tales, fantasies, explorations of extremities — often to the absurd degree — and some of the most visually engaging masterpieces to reach mass audiences. Celebrate comic culture and all its nifty playthings at the Tampa Comic Book and Toy Convention this Sunday in Largo. On sale will be comic books, cards, DVDs, action figures, anime and more. Guests include artist Greg Horn (pictured), Chuck Dixon, veteran Spidey artist Alex Saviuk and Amanda Stevens.
