Back in May, I attended the first Comic Con Revolution in Ontario, California. The show was put on by Atomic Crush Events and it was surprisingly good for a first-time, one-day show. I chatted with one of the men behind the new event shortly after the show, Gabe Fieramosco. He told me how they got the word out about the show and that paid attendance was over 5400 — amazing numbers for a first-time show.
Last month, they announced they would be doing a show in Palm Beach, Florida on February 24th, 2018. And now were getting information on the second time in Ontario, which will be a two-day show on May 19th and 20th, 2018.
They will continue to hold the con in the Ontario Convention Center, which is a very nice facility with a lot of easy parking. The guest list includes Jason Aaron (X-Men, Star Wars), Sandy King Carpenter (Film Producer & Comic Writer), Ming Chen (AMCs Comic Book Men), David Lafuente (Archer & Armstrong), Dustin Nguyen (Descender), Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo), Cat Staggs (Wonder Woman), and Timothy Zahn (Star Wars Novelist).
They'll also be doubling the square footage of the show, which will allow for more guests, more exhibitors, and more vendors to go along with the second day. They'll also be producing the second annual Cosplay Revolution Costume Contest hosted by Ming Chen, with the winners receiving what they are calling "one of the most unique awards ever."
You can get an idea of the size of the show from these photos taken last year. And if you look closely, you can even see me at my table. I will be back for year two.
