Does your weekend include plans to hang with Power Rangers, Wonder Woman and Gwar? If that sounds like a hoot, you won’t want to miss the Virginia Comicon, that celebrated institution of comic book love, at its brand-new location: the entire student commons at VCU. It’s the convention’s biggest local event yet, with three large ballrooms, a 300-seat movie theater and a food court. Starts at noon on Saturday, July 8, and it also takes place at noon on Sunday, July 9. Tickets cost from $19.95 to $29.95. vacomicon.com.
