“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.

As the west coast’s most attended gaming event, PAX West continues to deliver and improve upon the experience its attendees have come to know and love.

In addition to the immense exhibition halls on the fourth and sixth floors where attendees can get hands-on with the most anticipated upcoming titles, the expo will include autograph signings with some of the most popular content creators on YouTube and Twitch, live tournaments with the biggest names in esports, panels with industry leaders, console, tabletop, and PC freeplay areas, a VR lounge, and more.

“PAX West is where it all started, so whenever we have a chance to invite people into our home it’s just a good feeling,” said Jerry Holkins, co-founder, Penny Arcade. “Purely as a word advice, I would briefly minimize this window and try to get tickets as soon as you can. They tend to go fast.”

Produced by Penny Arcade, in conjunction with ReedPOP, the PAX series of shows – West, East, South, Dev, Unplugged, and Australia – have become some of the world’s largest gaming conventions, each with tens of thousands of yearly guests. Each and every event provides a celebration of gaming culture, where prominent game creators connect directly with the gaming community via demos, panels, concerts, tournaments, and other exciting opportunities.
