Check out your favorite comic artists as they go “pen to pen” in this epic competition. Plus, you can enter to win the original art they produce once they’re done! 

This is an amazing experience to witness as these friendly competitions reveal who's got the edge in comic book illustration!


Some of the world’s biggest comic book creators will be featured this year, with panels of their own. Here’s your chance to ask those questions you have always wanted answers to and to hear the perspectives of those who shape the industry!


Many of our Artist Alley creators will have original art, lithographs, limited edition art prints, and original sketches available. Some also take commissions from fans.

Note: Fees vary. Please check with creators individually for prices and availability.


Indie meets pro in this special area where you will find all your favorite pencillers, inkers and writers. This is a ”must experience" area for anyone interested in meeting rising stars and those who work the front lines of the industry! 

Here you’ll find it all – comics, graphic novels, limited edition prints and best of all, original art and sketches. You’ll also find crafters and makers, all with a nerdy slant to their designs and creations.


Our event prides itself on having so many amazing activities and attractions that are family oriented. Spend the day with the whole family as you meet your favorite Superheroes, Princesses and voice actors. You can even enter the Cosplay Costume Contest as a family!
