This week, we're talking with Alex Larson about the Peoria Park District's inaugural Artist and Comic Expo. The event features many guests and creators with ties to the region -- including voice actor Larry Kenney, who worked on the 1980s animated series "Thundercats." Artists Jenny Frison and Hilary Barta, who currently work in the comic book industry, also grew up in and around Peoria. The Expo also includes film screenings, panel discussions and activities aimed at children. The Artist and Comic Expo will be held May 9th and 10th at the Bonnie Noble Center.
