Fantasia Comic Con

Bringing together America's three greatest mediums under one roof.

There’s a new convention coming to California, and it’s got a big goal.

Fantasiacon is looking to start something big in Indio, California. In its own words, “Fantasia Comic Con brings together America’s three greatest mediums under one roof: Pop Culture, Entertainment and Fandom. Fantasia’s ultimate goal is to meet the needs of the fan first. So many comic cons forget the true purpose of bringing these three mediums together for the benefit and enjoyment of the fans in attendance. Fantasia Con has not forgotten this creed and is committed to the fans first in satisfying their every need. We hope to accomplish this by featuring Pop Culture, celebrities, independent artists, cos play, video games and most importantly of all-comics. Fantasia Comic Con is a place where entertainment, pop culture and fandom can all intersect for the enjoyment of all and the experience of a lifetime.”

Guests have already signed on, showing that this con is looking to live up to its pledge: Eric Fox, a twenty year freelance special effects artist who appeared on SyFy’s Face Off; Vic Moya, an inker whose work has appeared in books from Devils Due/1First Comics, IDW, Zenescope, Aspen/BDI, and Rock ‘N’ Roll Comics; Marat Mychaels, whose art has graced Deadpool Corps, X-Force: Shatterstar, Hawk and Dove, Grifter, Blindside, Notti & Nyce, and Zen Intergalactic Ninja: Hard Bounty; Orlando Harding, the founder and creator of Revolution Comics and author of the comic book Pariah, the critically acclaimed Night Stalker, and R.R.H.; Peter “Navy” Tuiasosopo, best known for his roles as E. Honda in Street Fighter and Manumana in Necessary Roughness; and John Gallagher, who helped start BioWare as the director of concept art and design, moving on to work on Once Upon A Time, Falling Skies and Man In the High Castle to Night at the Museum 3, Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters and the upcoming Power Rangers, and currently illustrating both The Flash and Supergirl.

Exhibitors and professionals are encouraged to contact Fantasiacon if they’d like to be part of this event.

This looks to be the start of something fun to be found in the world fandom. SciFiPulse wishes them success in their endeavors.
