“We try to pride ourselves on having a little something for everyone, whether it’s gaming, cosplay, movies, TV or comics — you name it,” explains Chris Angel, the convention’s director. “If it’s a part of geek culture, we’re trying to include it.” Naturally, that includes plenty of fun for the budding geeks of tomorrow, who will bring the next generation of nerdy awesomeness to life.
“We’re on a mission to promote literacy and improve education through pop culture, and that’s a cool thing to do,” Angel adds. “People are starting to pay attention to the fact that that’s what we’re doing. We have the Comic Book Classroom Kids Corral in the middle of the convention floor, where kids and families can participate in activities and workshops and presentations and all kinds of fun stuff. We encourage people to bring their kids to our show.”
The convention starts at 10 a.m. today and runs through Sunday evening at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street. Tickets start at $30 for adults for single-day passes, with multi-day passes and special-event pricing available. For tickets and additional info, visit denvercomiccon.com.
