Gene Simmons in a Superman Suit 

Nerds, unite! Are you an album obsessive with an appetite for comic books or a comic obsessive with a taste for rockin' and rollin'? Hanker no more, because the first ever Rock and Comic-con, presented by Jim Kilroy, brings together alluring collectibles from both worlds under the same roof. Aside from vendor tables with records and comics, the event features other pop-culture objects, such as T-shirts and action figures. And, yeah, there's gonna be a costume contest (and an action-figure raffle). Star Wars-inspired rock band Darkside of the Force and tribute act Almost Kiss, along with a bevy of regional performers, play while you shop. It all happens from 3 to 11 p.m. at the Uptown Theater (3700 Broadway). Get $5 tickets in advance through Ticketmaster or the Uptown box office (816-753-8665). For more information, call 913-709-1367.— Chance Dibben
