Cincinnati Comic Expo to be bigger and better in 2013

The beginning of November has brought lots of convention news around the area and today's news comes from Cincinnati Comic Expo. On the convention's Facebook page, organizers have stated they are challenging themselves to make the 2013 convention even bigger than it was in 2012. 6,000 attendees flocked to Duke Energy Convention Center in September to see over 200 artists, vendors, and exhibits. The convention this year included a Geek Prom, Kid Con, Jedi training, and demonstrations from Jason David Frank. After a very successful con in 2012, organizers have a big task ahead of them to supersede this year's success.

"We promise that 2013 looks to be the best year yet for CCE with some great guests already attending, first time attending comic publishers, popular media guests, and the best vendors and retailers a comic show could ask for!"

CCE began in 2010 as a pop culture convention with an emphasis on comic books. 2013 will begin with a Preview Night on Friday and continue with extended convention hours on both Saturday and Sunday. The event will include a costume contest and the return of Kid Con.

  1. Hi! Thanks for the great post! I'm Dot Crane--I'm on the staff of the Expo. Also, I saw your comment on Reddit about the new show over in KY, and thought you might be interested in a few things.

    The Expo has always reached out to cutting edge comics artists in addition to honoring the greats of years past. Some years it's more difficult to schedule current talent, due to crazy-busy schedules, but we have always striven to bring our fans the best. Also, the Expo has always been a September show. And we welcome input and help from anyone willing to contact us; no one has ever been "rebuffed." Finally, the creators and vendors at the 2012 Expo reported great sales and were very happy with our biggest show ever.

    Thanks again for writing about us. Hope to see you next year!
