When the idea of PopCon started, we were a group of gamers, geeks, nerds, and collectors who wanted to start something cool. When we announced our idea to the world, we expected a modest response at first. Instead, you gave us more. The passion and excitement our fans have shown us has left us both humbled and honored. It also leaves us wanting to give you what you’ve given us – more.
We are not a mega corporation. To give you more, we need a second hall for the convention so we can give you more space, more programming, more guests, artists, and vendors, and for that we need to know you’ll be there. If we raise the funds for the second hall by putting you there, we can give you bigger cosplay contests, gaming tournaments, larger panels, a 24-hour board/tabletop gaming area, and more.
But that’s not all we’ll give you. If you get your tickets now, through this Kickstarter pre-sale event, you will be an intricate part of making PopCon 2014 Bigger, Better, and Geekier than we could do on our own. In exchange for that support, we offer you “I Made it Happen” T-Shirts, VIP passes, exclusive artwork, and more.
Take a look and we thank you for your support!

Big thank you to ComicsPriceGuide.com, the world’s leading online price guide for comics and collectibles, for coming on board as a title sponsor for PopCon. CPG will help us make sure comics are WELL represented at our show!
“Started in 1995 as a tribute to the memory of Tim Beck, a close childhood friend of founder Bryan Neely, who unfortunately passed away from complications due to leukemia at the age of 25.
From the early days of their friendship, they were both focused on the world of comic reading and collecting. Their entire world revolved around this hobby. It didn’t stop even while Bryan was going to college. At Ball State university, Bryan created the very first percursor of ComicsPriceGuide.com. Initially it was named MarvelWorld and featured only data and related information exclusively on Marvel Comics.
Fast-forward 18 years and ComicsPriceGuide.com has become the world’s largest and most accurate online community for obtaining comic book value information. In addition to serving over 700,000 users value data, our message boards and blogs have become the go-to-source and authority for connecting comic book enthusiasts.
Our values remain simple, but our technology is not. Using a proprietary value algorithm, paired with dedicated comic enthusiasts, we are able to preserve real sales data to get up-to-the minute comic book value information.”
