It’s happening again! #ZDARSCON is the official comic book event of Chip Zdarsky, but this time he’s bringing some special pals to the event! You have no idea what to expect, even if you went last time, because this is nothing like last time or anytime for that matter.

#ZDARSCON Facts:

  • #ZDARSCON is an experience. But, sadly, it will be an experience which lasts for roughly 5-10 minutes per person. Do not travel to Toronto JUST for #ZDARSCON. Just trust Chip on this one.
  • #ZDARSCON will be located within 5-10 minutes walking of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where we presume nothing related is going on this weekend. Maybe the gift show? Anyway.
  • #ZDARSCON will announce the MYSTERY LOCATION the morning of! And the signing schedule the night before!
  • #ZDARSCON will have a selection of books and products from all participating creators available for purchase at the event itself, on the off chance you didn’t get up Saturday morning and lug a box of books downtown.
  • #ZDARSCON will be a very nice time.

ABOUT THE BOOK
What would you take? Imagine you were leaving for a new country, and could bring along only what would fit in a small suitcase. Which things would you choose to say to the world, “Hi there, this is me!”

New York Times bestselling author and award-winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis, working with her longtime illustrator Laura Cornell, brings her whimsical verse to the subject of immigration and identity. In this picture book, various children—inspired by their remarkable teacher—talk about what they’d bring with them if they could only take one suitcase to their new home: photographs, a favorite book, grandfather’s beret. Which things do they love most? What best expresses who they are? At the end, the question is posed to the reader: “What would you take? Which things would say to the world, this is me!” The book ends with a pop-up suitcase, which the child can then fill with his or her favorite things. It opens with a teacher reading to her class… “My great-grandmother came from a far, distant place. She came on a boat with just this small case.” And ends with an exercise where the child reading would decide what of his or her own items would be packed into the provided suitcase if faced with needing to make that decision. The last spread is a pop up suitcase that can be filled!

Florida Supercon is MOVING to The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center!

Why Fort Lauderdale?

Construction at The Miami Beach Convention Center and the surrounding area will be in high gear next year and would have prevented us from putting on the quality of show that you deserve.
Fort Lauderdale is welcoming us with wide open arms. They have a gorgeous facility with room to accommodate all of the attendees from Supercon 2016. We will sell out again like we did this year, but there’s room for all returning fans who buy tickets in advance.

We will be taking over the entire Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention Center on all 3 floors! It is approx. 29 miles from the Miami Beach Convention Center, and will be closer for some, and further away for others. We hope that the quality of convention that we put on will bring everyone back in 2017.

**Please note that Fort Lauderdale has removed the security checkpoint from Eisenhower Blvd so that attendees can drive up to the parking garage and Convention Center from the 17th Street entrance without stopping to show ID.**

There are thousands of parking spots on site, and we will run shuttles between the official hotels and parking garages in the area.
This will be our best year yet!
