Cincinnati Comic Expo
Comics fans in smaller towns know the frustration of having to travel hundreds of miles to find a great convention. Andrew Satterfield was tired of that feeling, and decided to start his own convention in his hometown of Cincinnati. The first convention in 2010 was small, but notable, drawing a respectable 1,800 fans to its one-day event. Over the years, Andrew and his team have upped the ante, adding more days, moving to a larger venue, and drawing ever bigger names, from comic-artist Stan Goldberg to Firefly's Jewel Staite, as well as Jim Steranko and George Perez. Now a three-day affair that takes place in the Duke Energy Convention Center, the Cincinnati Comic Expo lets fans of every franchise browse thousands of comics, movie posters, and collectibles; hear their favorite celebrities speak; and test out mutant powers without fear of governmental repercussions.
