Denver Comic Con (DCC), Denver’s largest consumer convention and program of education-nonprofit Pop Culture Classroom (PCC), announces the dates for the 2017 convention as June 30 – July 2, 2017 at the Colorado Convention Center. Tickets will go on sale this fall.
2016 marked the 5th year anniversary of the event of the Denver Comic Con. Since 2012 the attendance has continued to increase each year. In 2012 the attendance was 27,700 and in 2016 it increased to 114,900. From 2015 to 2016 the attendance grew over 13,000 attendees and 2017 we should expect to see more.
Convention Director Christina Angel had this to say about 2016:
“2016 was a blast, and of course the growth of the event is exciting. It’s an honor to be able to bring such popular guests, comic artists and programs to the Denver community. We’re already working to make the 2017 line-up the best yet,”
Denver Comic Con continues to add a thriving lineup of artists, writers, celebrities and much more. The 2016 lineup of Hollywood stars consisted of the likes of Karl Urban (Star Trek, Dredd), Lena Headley (Game of Thrones), John Barrowman (Arrow), Clark Gregg (Agents of SHIELD) and many more.
We it came to the show floor were also exposed to comic book companies such as Valiant Entertainment (Rai, Bloodshot, Ninjak), Aspen Comics (Fathom, Soulfire) writers such as Terry Brooks (Shannara), Kevin Hearne (The Iron Druid Chronicles) and artists such as J. Scott Campbell (Spiderman), John Romita, Jr. (Batman, Superman, Spiderman), Marguerte Sauvage (Faith), Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Star Wars) and much more.
Denver Comic Cons hosted more than 300 hours of panels of family friendly entertainment from all the artists, writers, industry experts including Pop culture classroom who is in part responsible for bringing the Denver Comic Con to life. Due to Pop Culture Classroom’s involvement more than more than 9,000 sq. ft., is dedicated to teens and children with activities designed to engage kids in education through pop culture, which makes this convention slightly different than other conventions.
For 2017 we will only have to wait to see what is up their sleeves, but if history has shown us anything it is that we will see more guests, more contributors and more attendance. We here at Constant Collectible attended 2016 for the first time and we look forward to next year where we will bring you even more coverage
