“The Inland Empire proved to us once again that creating a Comic Convention for the area was the correct move,” said Drew Seldin, ACE co-founder.  “As the fans continue to support the conventions, we will continue to build a show for everyone.  We’re already starting to plan for 2019 to make year 3 even better.”
