Comic Con Revolution Returns May 19 & 20, 2018 for Two Full Days


Comic Con Revolution, The Inland Empire's first full scale comic con, opened big attracting 5449 unique attendees. This number does not include exhibitors or staff. Organizers, Atomic Crush Events (ACE), have announced that the event will return to the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario California for two days in 2018 May 19 & 20.

"We wanted to create something special for Ontario and the entire Inland Empire to call their own," said ACE Co-Founder Gabe Fieramosco. "We cant thank them, as well as our exhibitors and guests, enough for the support they showed us. Long live the 909! Cant wait to see you all again next year."

"[Comic Con Revolution] reminded me of San Diego Comic Con before the movie studios took over. It was just about the comics, said attendee Ronald Scott of Claremont, California.

Comic Con Revolution will grow in 2018 taking over both exhibit halls as well as the Mayoral Ballroom. The event will add additional features including a Professional Creator's Summit on Friday, May 18th, play host to the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles as they complete their Comic Book Artist badge while growing the exhibitor and guest lists.

"We are already hard at work laying the foundation for next year's Comic Con Revolution," said ACE Co-Founder Mike Scigliano. He added, "And we'll spend the next 12 months preparing an even bigger and better experience."

Exhibit sales are already underway for Comic Con Revolution 2018 with ticket sales opening in the fall of 2017.

When we decided to do our first convention as Atomic Crush Events and to debut Comic Con Revolution in Ontario we hoped the fans would enjoy it. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect to be embraced by the community the way we were - attendees, exhibitors & guests alike. We are humbled by your support and by all the smiling faces we saw last Saturday. We look forward to the day we can be 909 again, even if only for the weekend.

So mark your calendars, tell your friends and start preparing for May 19 & 20, 2018 when Comic Con Revolution returns!

Thank you,

Gabe, Drew, James, Mike & the rest of the CCR Team!

May the Force be with you! Today is International Star Wars Day! The day Star Wars devotees around the world celebrate 40 years of fandom! Just like them, we are HUGE fans and we've got some great Star Wars fun in store for you when Comic Con Revolution invades the Inland Empire - May 13th.

The Revolution needed the help of the Jedi so we reached out to the Saber Guild Outer Rim Temple and they heeded our call. Appearing in Booth 648 the Saber Guild Outer Rim Temple is part of the Saber Guild, a not-for-profit Star Wars fan costuming club that does choreographed lightsaber combat shows for charity and the community. They serve southern California's Inland Empire and the greater areas of Los Angeles and Orange Counties.

That wasn't enough so we reached out and hired some mercs and the Mandalorian Mercs LA chapter Manda'galaar Clan was more than happy to be a part of the cause. The Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club(Booth 649) is the world's premier custom Mandalorian costume organization. With 20 chapters in 7 countries around the world, members of Mercs take part in a wide range of activities, including local and international conventions, charity events, and fan gatherings.

And because we're gonna have a bunch of Jedi and Mercs running around The 501st Inland Empire Squad will be on hand to keep everyone in line, or subjugated, depending on your feeling about the Empire. The 501st Legion(Booth 550), also known as Vader's Fist, is a worldwide Star Wars costuming organization comprised of and operated by Star Wars fans.

Star Wars & Empire Strikes Back Producer Gary Kurtz will also be joining us for a special First Look at his new project TimeWarpers at 5:30pm in Room 104B. A hybrid of live action and animation made by comic book fans for comic book fans. TimeWarpers is a team of superheroes that travel through time to correct the forgotten time-line remade by the P.U.N. (Prosperous United Nations). Using their newly discovered genetic powers they warp through time and thus the future of mankind lies in the uncertain past. Join the film's writer Craig Miller (Star Wars, Curious George, The Dark Crystal), director Max Forzan, producer Gary Kurtz (Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back), and members of the film's cast.
