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.

Planet Comicon 2016 Welcomes Stan Lee

0000000-slee-PCKC16-sq

Press Release:

Stan Lee, the guy who created and co-created hundreds of iconic superheroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, and Thor, is coming to Planet Comicon Kansas City at Bartle Hall May 20, 21 and 22. The legendary former publisher of Marvel Comics is scheduled to sign autographs, pose with fans for photo opportunities, and appear on stage for a Q&A session.

“Every year the show gets better,” said Planet Comicon Kansas City founder and CEO Christopher Jackson. “We are incredibly excited and truly honored to have Stan Lee coming to Kansas City. He is a visionary who has brought a whole pantheon of modern mythology to life. The incredible imagination of Stan Lee fills our theaters, toy stores, and television screens.”

Planet Comicon Kansas City has exploded in popularity and attendance since moving to the monster space at Bartle Hall in 2012. The annual show draws legions of fans of superheroes, science fiction, animation, television, movies, fantasy, and gaming, with acres of interactive exhibits, live art, costumes, performances and collectibles.

Other celebrity guests already announced for Planet Comicon in 2016 include Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Miami Vice), Eve Myles (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Sean Maher (Firefly), and Jason Mewes (Clerks, Mallrats). Other comic creator guests include Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra: Assassin), Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor), Joe Staton (Green Lantern, Dick Tracy), Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men, The Sixth Gun), Brian Hurtt (The Sixth Gun, Queen & Country), Matt Kindt (Rai, Ninjak), Don Rosa (Uncle Scrooge), Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/TMNT), Dennis Hopeless (Spider-Woman), Phil Hester (Green Arrow, The Flash: Season Zero), Rick Burchett (Lady Sabre, Batman Adventures), and more!

Enter to Win a Stan Lee V.I.P. Package“We will continue to announce celebrity guests over the next few months,” Jackson said. “The final roster will include more than 25 celebrities who will be available to meet with their fans. Planet Comicon is designed for every fan in the family. We work for a great balance of comic book creators, celebrity guests, cosplay events, vendors, gaming, children’s activities, performances, and panel programming. That’s what has kept our event growing year after year.”

Last year’s Planet Comicon Kansas City drew a record-setting 54,000 fans to Bartle Hall, but Jackson expects the 2016 show to be the biggest yet.

Jackson noted that, “For the past two years, Planet Comicon has been on the same weekend as the Big 12 basketball tournament, which strained the limits of hotel rooms, parking, and other downtown accommodations. Our event has now moved to May, and we expect that to allow us to grow our show and improve the experience for fans even more.”

Tickets for Planet Comicon Kansas City will be available at the door. In addition, advance memberships that include admission to the event can be purchased at the Planet Comicon Kansas City website, www.planetcomicon.com. A limited number of Stan Lee autograph and photo packages will be available and can be pre-purchased on the website.

“This will be Mr. Lee’s first such appearance in Kansas City and we are extremely excited to welcome him as our guest of honor at Planet Comicon,” Jackson said. “We expect the Stan Lee packages to sell out in advance of the show, so fans who want to meet him should book their packages well ahead of time.”

Lee has appeared in more than 30 movies, including cameos in nearly every Marvel movie. He was recently named the most successful filmmaker of all time, as his legendary creations have grossed $15 billion worldwide.

FOUNDED IN 1999, PLANET COMICON KANSAS CITY is Kansas City’s largest and longest-running comic book convention and pop culture expo, featuring the best in comic books, fantasy, science fiction television and movies. Past Planet Comicon guests have included William Shatner, Stephen Amell, Lou Ferrigno, Adam West, Kenny Baker, Cary Elwes, Karen Gillan and many more. Memberships that include admission can be purchased on the event website, www.planetcomicon.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.
