Comic conventions increase in popularity every year and the convention season kicks off in January starting with Wizard World Portland and the Amazing Arizona Comic Con, both happening next weekend, Jan 24-26th.
Conventions are fun to attend, you can learn more about comics, meet old friends, make new ones, and BUY stuff! You can also use a comic convention as an event to build a vacation around. Spend a day or 2 at the con and then explore the surrounding area, or just relax at a local resort or beach.
Did you know that the ComicSpectrum Convention Calendar page lists over 45 of the larger conventions happening all across the US in 2014?
There’s not a listing for every 1-day “hotel show” but the majority of the multi-day conventions are listed along with links to the convention web-sites in both a calendar and table format.
We’d like to be as complete as possible, if you know of a convention (inside the US or anywhere in the world) that is not currently listed, send the URL of the convention web-site to: firstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll get it added!
