San Diego Comic Con is the big daddy of all cons, but that doesn't mean it's right for everyone. If you're looking for something a little bit more manageable (not to mention closer to home), the Comic Con at Central Library
has what you need. Today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Central Branch of the St. Louis Public Library (1301 Olive Street; www.slpl.org
) you can sample virtual reality, take pictures with Voltron, make pop-culture projects in Star Clipper's Craft Corner and even go to a con-within-the-con at PokéCon Central. Seoul Taco, Gioia's Deli and Kona Ice's food trucks will be parked near the Olive Street entrance to deal with your hunger pangs, and the Shake Ups perform music inspired by Steven Universe
during the lunch hour. Comic Con at Central Library is an all-ages event, and admission is free.
