Comic Con Wars Break Out In Cincinnati

It’s been a while since the last one but comic con wars are upon us again. Where two competing organisations, try to best each other running a comic convention in the same city, at the same time, sometimes even on the same street.

The Cincinnati ComiCon is a new convention scheduled at the Northern Kentucky Convention Centre from September 6th to 8th 2013. It’s being funded by a Kickstarter appeal, is sponsored by Things From Another World and labelled  “The Convention Cincinnati Deserves”

However, Cincinnati already has a comic convention, the CCE, looking forward to its fourth year, at the Duke Energy Center, already scheduled for the 13th to the 15th September 2013, a week after the date the new show chose.

It is now tagging itself at “The Original Comic Expo In Downtown Cincinnati”.
The original show is yet to announce its comics guests while the new show has guests aplenty from Jason Aaron to Katie Cook to Chris Burnham to Tony Moore to Rick Remender to Tony Harris! And a much nicer website.

The new show is organised by CCE panel sponsor last year and comics retailer, Kendall Swafford, CCE previous attendee and Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore and his wife Kara Fairfield, and CCE vendor Brian Livingston.

I get the feeling its going to get bloody over the next ten months…
