Appleseed Comics and Art Convention
Appleseed 2014 has a growing guest list that features Jim Steranko, Peter Bagge, Ed Piskor, Tom Scioli, Hilary Barta, Ryan Browne, Mike Norton, Christopher Mitten, Dave Wachter, and nearly 100 more!
Appleseed Comic Con was founded with a singular purpose in mind: celebrate comics and the comics community. Comics is an art form, and it is an art form that is supported by an incredible community. To that end, we have made the art of comics, and the creators responsible, the focus of the show. Another big part of comics is the shopping experiencethe thrill of the hunt. In order to serve those fans who are on the hunt for that one back issue, that Gen-1 Starscream figure that has been haunting them since childhood, or that new game they've been itching to try, Appleseed also involves as many local retailers as can participate and a number regional retailers as well. The comics community is an amazing and wonderful thing, and it is Appleseed's primary goal to get fans new and old to come out to experience that community and build lasting bonds with creators, great retailers, and most importantly, their fellow fan.
Appleseed Comic Con is hosted in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Fort Wayne has an exceptionally supportive comics and art community that in recent years has supported not just the arts but five (previously more) comic and/or game shopsnot including the stores in surrounding counties and other collectible stores. There is a solid community of fans here, and our ease of access to other large cities allows us to attract even more fans who live in proximity. Fort Wayne has also hosted one of the two annual Diamond Retailer Summits, the previous Summit City Comic Con, BotCon, and a handful of smaller comic cons.
