ATOMIC CRUSH EVENTS ANNOUNCES RETURN FOR YEAR TWO OF COMIC CON REVOLUTION 

Saturday May 19 & Sunday May 20, 2018 At The Ontario Convention Center in Ontario California – Tickets on Sale Now

Top Talent Currently Scheduled To Appear Include Jason Aaron, Sandy King Carpenter, Ming Chen, David Lafuente, Dustin Nguyen, Stan Sakai, Cat Staggs and Timothy Zahn

New York, NY September 27, 2017 Atomic Crush Events (ACE) is pleased to announce the return of Comic Con Revolution (CCR) to Ontario, California.  The second annual comic con will be twice as large as year one.  Over double the square footage, more exhibitors, more vendors and even more guests.  CCR will be held on May 19 & 20, 2018 at the Ontario Convention Center and will feature two full days of programming.

The initial guest list boasts some of the most incredible talent in the industry including Jason Aaron (X-Men, Star Wars), Sandy King Carpenter (Film Producer & Comic Writer), Ming Chen (AMCs Comic Book Men), David Lafuente (Archer & Armstrong), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman), Timothy Zahn (Star Wars Novelist).  Many more additional announcements will be made before Comic Con Revolution opens its doors for year two.

“We’ve been hard at work reaching out to exciting and talented creators over the last few months,”  commented ACE Co-Founder Mike Scigliano.  “As each one confirms their participation the first thing we think about is how our attendees will react to the news.”

Not satisfied with just growing exhibit hall and the guest list, Comic Con Revolution will now play host to two days of programming full of panels and events for the entire family.  They’ll also be producing the second annual Cosplay Revolution Costume Contest hosted by Ming Chen with the winners receiving one of the most unique awards ever.  The ultimate goal is to create a full weekend experience.

“We were overwhelmed with the support and love that Ontario and the entire Inland Empire showed Comic Con Revolution last May,” said ACE Co-Founder Drew Seldin.  “It’s driven us to produce a bigger and better experience for 2018.”

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by visiting the Comic Con Revolution website http://www.comicconrevolution.com/ontario/.

Also available are exclusive logo enamel pins, pint glasses and tees.
