We make comics, collect comics, and deal in rare underground comix, so we thought we'd like to make a con that embodied our sensibilities. As the major conventions grow exponentially, but focus less on comics, we felt a good old-fashioned con with a strong emphasis on comics was needed.
Our first show in 2012 started small, just 32 tables in a bowling alley that was converted to a rock club that was converted to a comic convention. Our sencond show had 48 tables. Our last show was held at Convention Hall and had 170 exhibitors and eight panel discussion sessions. April 2014 will see us expand to two days and feature over 200 exhibitors. While it is our intention to grow the size of our con, we do not book movie and tv celebs or pro wrestlers. We intend to keep Asbury Park Comicon about comics.
