Palm Springs Comic Con 2017 (Preview)

Looks like Palm Springs Comic Con 2017 will be our last con of the year! Unfortunately, we missed last year’s inaugural event because it was the same weekend as DesignerCon and we had already made plans.

The two shows fall on the same weekend again this year, but we recently found out that one of our friends, comic book historian and author of the spectacular coffee table book, The Silver Age of Comic Book ArtArlen Schumer (who is based out in the east coast) was going to be making an appearance, so we just had to go to PSCC as well.

Here’s what the organizers have to say about PSCC:

Palm Springs Comic Con is more than a pop culture convention. We are a geek culture convention. We pride ourselves in honoring the rich tradition and history of comic books, sci fi, and fantasy, while embracing all forms of media, especially new media such as YouTube, blogging, podcasts, tech, and indie game development.

We want to offer an experience that gives the fans more of a connection than the typical convention. We want our fans to not just satiate the desire to consume the fandoms they love but to feel educated, informed, inspired, to feel like they too can do what the creators of the art they love can do.Palm Springs Comic Con is more than a pop culture convention.
