Comic conventions: a comprehensive guide to most all of the upcoming comic cons

There are comic conventions happening weekly around the world - here's a list of many of them, so you can make plans to be there yourself!

C2E2 2022

Loving comics can be a solitary experience - unlike movies or TV shows, you can't read them as a group. But that's where comic conventions come in.

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!

Popverse is collecting dates and locations for all the major comic conventions around the world; from the biggest US shows like New York Comic Con and Comic-Con International: San Diego to beloved regional shows like HeroesCon and TCAF. We even have some of the biggest international events such as Angoulême International Comics Festival and Komiket on the list.

There's a couple big comic conventions which we're waiting on for their next announced dates such as São Paulo's CCXP, D23 Expo, Angoulême International Comics Festival, London's MCM Comic Con in October 2023, Switzerland's Japan Impact, Comic Con India, the London Anime & Gaming Convention, Barcelona's Salon De Manga, Latvia's UniCon, Arizona Comicbook Arts Festival, and Star Wars Celebration 2025. But if you see an oversight on the list, you can email us with the name, dates, and location of the event.
