About This Convention
Cheyenne Comic Con
Wyoming’s first comic convention and pop culture event of it’s kindOUR HISTORY
We started out with our locally owned comic shop The Loft Collectibles, Comics & Games. It literally was in a loft at first with only 450 square feet. Within a year we moved to our current location and have been thriving since.

May of 2015 was when C3 began as an idea and is now coming to fruition. We started the Wyoming Comic Book Initiative as a non profit organization to provide the tools and the supplies to young readers so that they may continue their education through comics.

Comic books, are more accepted today by educators as tools for helping children master literacy. The funny, silly, clever, and touching story lines in each short strip draw eager readers in. Just a few words per frame is all it takes for a comic book’s characters to reveal a complete story. They don’t require long sentences or paragraphs to relate a captivating tale or a powerful message.
