Heroes. Villains. A collection of your favorite comic book characters all in one place. Don your costume caped crusader—Statesville Comic Con 2020 is coming up on Saturday, Feb. 8.
What are Comic Cons?
Short for comic book conventions, comic cons serve as a place where comic book collectors, creators, and publishers convene. Comic cons are where people can enjoy each other’s company, and learn about what’s upcoming in the comic book world.
Comic book enthusiasts flock to comic cons for the latest updates on the newest comic book, comic series, movie, or other media. Creators and publishers use the convention as a chance to showcase their latest work—and advertise forthcoming works, specials, and more.
Comic cons feature fan-favorites such as cosplaying, which allows attendees to dress up as a comic book or movie character. Cosplay competitions have become a staple of many comic cons, with the most creative convention-goers crowned for their artistic flare and ingenious designs.
