Oklahoma City artist Jerry Bennett is scheduled for OafCon.

The Comic Book & Nostalgia Convention "Oafcon" returns for its 2016 edition this week in Norman. The convention welcomes a wide variety of guests, and features comic books, fantasy art, toys, movie posters, old time radio memorabilia and much more.

Bennett has worked on a number of locally produced comics, including the sci-fi adventure "Nadir' s Zenith" with Jackson Compton.

"Nadir's Zenith" features a world of space-travel and corporations as governments.

Bennett has created shirt designs for Marvel, Lucasfilm and many more, and crafted an exclusive print for The Stan Lee Foundation. He’ll bring lots of prints and art to the show Saturday, including a Swamp Thing print he created exclusively for the show.

Bennett, who has illustrated comics, posters, T-shirts and children's books, himself got involved in the world of film in recent years. He was the cinematographer and storyboard artist for the film “Even in Death,” which recently was named the Best Oklahoma Short at the deadCenter Film Festival.
