BEVERLY COMIC CON
Local artists, comic creators, unique vendors, cosplayers, and fans of all ages unite! This is a one-of-a-kind FREE comic con to celebrate local art, and indie comics.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce there will be no Beverly Comic Con this year. Over the last 5+ years we have grown thanks to the incredible support of the fans, community, artists, vendors and sponsors; but unfortunately with that growth comes change. As the show has become larger & larger with more moving parts we have tried to maintain it’s unique grass roots atmosphere within our wonderful host; the Studios at Porter Mill. Over the past few years, we’ve squeezed and stuffed as much awesome as we can into every available inch of the building. And while we have grown, the building has changed a lot as well. As a staff we will be taking a hard look at what lies ahead for Beverly Comic Con, whether it remains at Porter Mill or elsewhere. (Somewhere larger? Or something different all together?)
We have been discussing this decision for quite some time and simply did not want to rush into any new plans for the show going forward.
We will always be grateful to Porter Mill, the tenants, residents, and staff for hosting this incredible show. Beverly Comic Con was initially formed as a reaction to tragedy and we hope it was a source of joy to our North Shore community and beyond. A big “Thank You” to all our past partners, vendors, artists and guests for helping to make this show the strange and wonderful thing it has been. Please keep supporting artists, listening to music, dressing up as your favorite characters and making comics.
This is not goodbye, just bye for now.
