The Derby City Comic Con is thrilled to announce that we will be back in Louisville for our sixth year on June 25-26. The event will be held in the Kentucky International Convention Center and features celebrity guests and hundreds of locally and nationally known artists, exhibitors, and vendors of all things pop culture.
Last year’s event in Louisville drew over 4,000 attendees and this year should be even bigger. Attendees will have the chance to meet some of the comic industries’ biggest stars including the creator of The Crow, James O’Barr, and such industry heavy hitters as Jae Lee, Colleen Doran, and Iron Man legend, Bob Layton.
Derby City Comic Con also boasts appearances by the original black Power Ranger, Walter Jones and Ming Chen & Bryan Johnson of the hit show on AMC, Comic Book Men.
Also appearing will be wrestling legend and Louisville’s own, Jim Cornette.
On top of all of the amazing guests, this convention will feature hundreds of exhibits from local and nationally known comic artists including many of today’s hottest comic professionals. These professionals will amaze you with their artistic talents and stories from inside the comic industry.
The convention features hundreds of vendors of comics and collectible toys that range in price from $1.00 up to thousands of dollars. Many of these vendors will be selling items that you may not have seen since childhood and a walk through the convention floor is surely a walk down memory lane.
Whether you are a die hard, card carrying citizen of Geekville, or just a casual watcher of Big Bang Theory, this con will certainly have something for you. So, dust off your Superman costume and come join us for Louisville’s biggest weekend of all things awesome.
The show is open to the general public from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 25 and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 26.
