WELCOME TO COMICON.com
You've driven into the city; stood your place in line at the convention center; paid the entrance fee and filled out the registration forms. At last, you're passing security and entering the Main Hall. Inside you are confronted with comic book heaven: row upon row of dazzling booths and tables manned by your favorite artists and writers. You've got two days to try and find everything you need and talk to everyone at the show. What is wrong with this picture?
Not a thing, if the convention you're attending is in the physical world. Hundreds of thousands of people soldier through a similar experience to get to wonderful comic book conventions, large and small, that are hosted in this country and around the world every year. But now there's a better way to go about it.
Welcome to COMICON.com, the world's biggest comic book convention. COMICON.com is as close as your computer and, once you get us bookmarked, there are no lines to stand in, no entrance fees to pay, and the fun doesn't end with the last day of the weekend. COMICON.com is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Better still, it isn't confined to any single city or country. COMICON.com is the first GLOBAL comic book convention, open and available to every wired comic book fan on Earth simultaneously!
So, you've made it this far; what can you expect to find at COMICON.com?
To start with, please be aware that this is the beta version of the convention. Think of it as if you've gotten a floor pass for the night before the show starts. Some of the booths are open and some are setting up, while certain functions are running smoothly and others still under construction. You can expect new booths springing to life at COMICON.com all the time, so be sure to stop in and explore regularly!
But make no mistake, all open booths are open for business! Click on any activated booth icon and you'll discover amazing worlds of Original Comic Book Art, hard-to-find books, one-of-a-kind comics related items and direct e-mail links to your favorite creators. You can purchase sketches, art or signed editions direct from the artists themselves via mail order, or click to Amazon.com, Graphicnovels.com, or our other on-line book retailers to buy the titles you want with a credit card on their secure shopping cart servers.
