I Like Comic Con Debuts 1st Show in February 2018

Press Release:

I Like Comic Con is coming to the Vancouver/Portland area at the Clark County Event Center! On February 10 and 11, 2018, join us for a celebration for fans of all genres and ages as we bring you amazing guest writers, artists, creators, comic book related celebrities, cosplay, a huge Artist Alley, exhibitors and so much more!

I Like Comic Con is a return to the roots of what made the current state of pop culture great – comic books and their artists and writers.  If not for comics we wouldn’t be enjoying the myriad of comic book based movies, television shows, cartoons, swag, or comic cons for that matter.  Can you imagine no comic cons? No Avengers movies?  No Batman films?  No Wonder Woman movie?  How could we go on without having our coffee in our favorite Deadpool mug?  Can you imagine it?  We can’t and thankfully we don’t have to!

Too often we see events focusing on Hollywood, media stars, and personalities.  We’ve overheard at many “comic cons” how people wish there were more comics and comic related creators.  I Like Comic Con pays tribute to comic books, their writers, creators, and artists by featuring comic artists and writers, comic related celebrity guests, and a wide range of exhibitors.

Guests currently include:

  • Jonboy Meyers: Jonboy’s comic book art includes working on such titles as The Inhumans, Spawn, Teen Titans, Spawn, G.I. Joe, Black Dynamite, Thor, Supergirl, Huntress, She Hulk, Hulk, Spider-Man, Arana, Gen 13, Ninja Scroll, Danger Girl, Justice League of America, and X-Men to name a few.
  • Karl Kesel: Veteran artist and writer on titles such as Harley Quinn, Legends, Superman, Captain America, Daredevil, and more.
  • Aaron Lopresti: Aaron’s impressive body of work includes Spider-Man, The X-Men, Wonder Woman, The Hulk, The Avengers, Batman, Plastic Man, Green Lantern, Superboy, Xena, Star Trek, Gen 13, and more!
  • Keith Tucker: Keith worked on nearly every 80s and 90s cartoon you watched as a kid including Transformers, GI Joe, He-Man, Spider-Man, Animaniacs, DuckTales, and Ghostbusters to name a few!

I Like Comic Con is now accepting Exhibitor and Artist Alley applications!  Our event will take place in the Clark County Event Center located near Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon and the show floor will be 100,000 square feet.  For more information and to download a copy of the application, please visit our Exhibitor Info page.  Please read and follow the directions on the application, as an incomplete application may delay processing.

TNT Invades Comic-Con with Legends, The Last Ship and Falling Skies

Legends at Center of First-Ever Branded Takeover of San Diego Airport

TNT is bringing its eagerly anticipated drama Legends to Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014 with multiple events and initiatives, including the first-ever branded takeover of San Diego International Airport. The gripping undercover drama starring Sean Bean (Game of ThronesThe Lord of the Rings) is the centerpiece of TNT’s extensive presence at this year’s Comic-Con, which takes place July 24-27 at the San Diego Convention Center.

This year’s Comic-Con will also feature events spotlighting TNT’s top-rated new series The Last Ship, including a party with CraveOnline aboard the USS Midway, and Falling Skies, with a special alien cocoon experience highlighting a key element in the show’s fourth season. In addition, stars and producers from all three shows are set to participate in discussion panels and Q&A sessions.

Below is a complete rundown of TNT’s initiatives for Comic-Con International: San Diego 2014.

Legends

Legends

TNT’s Comic-Con invasion will begin with the Legends takeover of San Diego International Airport, marking the first time a brand has ever taken over the airport. Travelers flying into San Diego the week of July 21 will be greeted with Legends imagery and messaging throughout the airport, including at baggage claim carousels and on escalators and skyway bridges. TheLegends messaging will also extend to other parts of San Diego, with eye-catching billboards in the Gaslamp Quarter.

During Comic-Con, TNT is set to feature a Legends panel with cast members Ali Larter (Heroes), Morris Chestnut (American Horror StoryNurse Jackie) and Tina Majorino (Grey’s AnatomyTrue Blood), and executive producers Howard Gordon (Homeland24) and David Wilcox (Fringe). The session will open with a screening of the entire first episode of the series. Following the screening and panel, Legends cast members are set to participate in an autograph-signing session.

TNT is also set to launch a social media initiative supporting Legends in conjunction with its Comic-Con presence. The network is encouraging fans of actor Sean Bean to use the hashtag#DontKillSeanBean in social media postings about the show. The hashtag plays on the fact that Bean has died in more than 20 acting roles, including the two characters for which he is widely known: Boromir in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Eddard “Ned” Stark in the series Game of Thrones. The hashtag will have its own tumblr page and will be featured on Legends premium items being handed out to Comic-Con attendees.
