Popverse's top stories of the day

Who doesn’t love a good convention? It’s where fans of all stripes can get together and find their people, surrounded by people who either share their particular pop culture obsessions, or have their own that are just as powerful.

Comic conventions bring the best of comics and associated pop culture fandoms to cities all around the world. Whether that means the appearance of the creators behind your favorite comics, rare copies of your favorite comics, or even clothing, collectibles, and other merchandise, comic conventions can have it all. You can even dress up as your favorite character and take part in the creative world of cosplay.

But it can be hard to keep track of all the conventions happening in your area, or keep an eye on the big ones so you can make travel plans to get to these landmark events. That's where this page comes in!
