Hartford Comic Con
Despite its name, the Hartford Comic Con doesn't just celebrate comics—it dives headfirst into the multiverse of pop culture. The two-day event brings together fans and artists from film and TV, gaming, comics, and genre literature for a chance to learn and revel in fandom at the same time. Special guests—from celebrity stars of sci-fi and fantasy TV and film to the artists of beloved comic book runs—headline the convention. Guest artists from a range of titles and nearly 60 independent artists in the Artist Alley are also on hand to show off their ink-based works.
Celebrities from both of those worlds participate in panel discussions. The Comic Con is also interactive: a cosplay contest gives visitors a chance to show off their creativity and attention to detail, while kid-friendly workshops let little ones enjoy arts and crafts.
