“The team at Atomic Crush Events launched Comic Con Revolution in Ontario and West Palm Beach in back to back years.  Adding Chicago next year was a natural fit,” said ACE co-founder Mike Scigliano.  He added, “Chicago is a great comic book town.  We want to give the fans a true comic convention that focuses on comic books that is packed with artist, creators, dealers and publishers.”

“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.”

March 2nd & 3rd, 2019 sees Comic Con Revolution West Palm Beach (CCRWPB) return to the Palm Beach County Convention Center for its second year while expanding to two full days.  Comic Con Revolution Ontario (CCRONT) returns for its third year at the Ontario Convention Center on May 18th & 19th, 2019.

Guest announcements and ticket sale dates for all events will be forthcoming.  Our guest lists will focus on artists, creators, dealers and publishers from all aspects of the comics industry.

Each CCR will host a Cosplay Revolution Costume Contest giving all contestants the opportunity to win our one-of-a-kind Revolution medals.
