“We are so excited to be able to branch out and bring something bigger and bolder to Vegas and Hawaii.” Said Amazing Comic Conventions founder Jimmy Jay. “After being Vegas’s leading show for the past 6 years and Hawaii’s ONLY show the past 4 years we felt it was time to bring more of the Architects of Pop culture that people love into these spaces. We were the first to bring COMIC CON’s to Hawaii and began a new trend of bringing big name talent like Stan Lee, William Shatner, Alan Tudyk and Star Trek The Next Generation cast members to the Aloha state. We can’t wait to continue that this year!! ”

“Charlie, Evangeline, Rob, Brianna, Sam and Tara are currently some of the most prolific names in Pop Culture and it’s amazing for people to be able to interact with them and see them in an intimate but family-friendly environment.”
