After Hopkins District Library wraps up their summer reading program with Zombie Survival Week, Dorr Township Library will host its first Mini Comic-Con on Saturday, Aug. 2, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The miniature comic book and pop culture convention will feature a Marvel Comic illustrator, Walking Dead family race, Quidditch game, a Supernatural hunting class and a costume contest, among a score of other events.
