|About This Convention|
|The California Comic Convention is returning for its 8th year to the Yorba Linda Community Center in Yorba Linda(Orange County) California on Sunday, January 26, 2014.
This is a one-day event with a focus on vintage comics and comic book art. The show will be on Sunday between the Football play-offs and Super-Bowl, so no one attending will miss the games.
Dozens of dealers from across the U.S. will offer a large selection of items sought-after by collectors and investors.
Our scheduled guest artists Mark Nelson and Tim Truman will sketch and sign during the show.
CGC will be available to take attendees’ submissions and to witness the original signatures of our guest artists.
In addition, we will raffle dozens of valuable items throughout the day including CGC graded comics, original comic book pages, guest artist sketches.
Because the show has been so successful in the past, all tables are already spoken for. We even sold all tables in the overflow room and on the porch.

Press Release : Team ZombieBomb!, Hub Comics, and Bloc 11 Gallery host an art fundraiser event for the family of former Hub Comics owner James Welborn on Sunday July 10, 2011 in Somerville, MA. James passed away very recently and we as a community want to give back to his store, his child, and his family. James was very supportive of all our efforts, as well as to the rest of the local comic scene.
Come see us at the Bloc 11 Gallery Sunday, July 10th from 2-6pm to participate in a silent auction featuring work from comic book artists of every stripe who have come together to honor James’s memory. With A-list work both on display and available for sale, this is a unique opportunity for art fans to get their hands on some amazing original artwork, and to help a great cause while doing it. Contributions include pages by superstar artists John Byrne, Tim Truman, Esad Ribic, Dick Ayers, Jim Mahfood as well as pieces donated by local artists such as Joe Quinones, Maris Wicks, Adam Miller, Liz Prince, Rich Woodall, Meghann Brideau, David Marshall, Andrew Houle, Josh Morrissette, and many more. Several of these locals will be on hand Sunday.
Additionally, Hub Comics will have a storewide sale all day with savings from 10% to 50% off almost everything in the store. Hub is located right next door to Bloc 11, making Bow Street a prime destination for any comic book and zombie fan within driving distance.
Fundraiser for James Welborn

Hub Comics – all day sale, 10am-6pm @ 19 Bow Street, Union Square, Somerville, MA
Bloc 11 – art auction, 2pm-6pm @ 11 Bow Street, Union Square, Somerville, MA
James Welborn, founder of Hub Comics, died on May 23rd, 2011. Originally from Nevada, James came to Massachusetts to work in the computer industry. He always loved comic books, and wanted to raise awareness that comics could tell any story and be read by anyone of any age. He built Hub Comics to be not only a comic shop, but a friendly neighborhood destination for fans, artists, children, and families. His smile and gentle greeting of “How’s it going?” will be missed by Union Square.
A trust fund has been set up to provide for James’s family. Please contact Hub Comics for more information.
