bringing comics back to comic cons

RetCon is a new Chicago comic book convention devoted to fantastic comics. While other comic conventions have shifted to focus on pop culture, RetCon brings the comic book back to the forefront. The comic book community is filled with diverse, up-and- coming writers and artists who are not currently featured in the mainstream comic industry. RetCon is committed to representing diverse creators.

This convention is perfect for comic book lovers who are interested in having meaningful conversations about the classics and want to learn more about the diverse voices entering the comic book space. The event will feature insightful panels, live entertainment, and a plethora of talented creators showcasing their latest work.

RetCon is a convention created by and for the Chicago comic book community, where the voice of the fan matters most.
