COMICON.COM ANNOUNCES GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION AT DENVER COMIC CON
The Re-Launched Website Unveils Increased Content And Mission Statement
July 1st 2017 (Denver, Co.) — Comicon.com is pleased to announce the completion of its soft launch period as a comics and pop culture news website and is excited to unveil the next phase of its development in an OFFICIAL GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION taking place in real time this weekend at Denver Comic Con, a premier non-profit convention drawing over 100,000 visitors annually.
Along with the grand opening of Comicon.com, readers can expect to encounter an increase in content running daily on the website, ranging from wider coverage in comics to an expansion in the realm of TV/Film, gaming, collectibles, and more. Comicon.com will be unveiling a number of hires in the form contributors to the site as well as a major TV/Film writer through its on-site “About” page today. Backed by a group of entertainment investors whose goal is to rejuvenate comics and pop culture journalism, Comicon.com will continue to add staff over time.
At this time, Comicon.com would like to introduce Hannah Means-Shannon, Ph.D., in the role of Executive Editor. Means-Shannon joined Comicon.com after working as an Associate Editor at Dark Horse Comics, and was formerly the Editor-in-Chief at Bleeding Cool, as well as the EIC of Bleeding Cool Magazine. Prior to this, she was a Contributing Editor at The Comics Beat. Coming from an academic background, she worked as an English Professor before moving into comics journalism.
At this time, Comicon.com would also like to express their mission statement as a pop culture media outlet. The origin of Comicon.com as a website dates back to the late 1990’s and the origin of comics communities online. The first iteration of Comicon.com acted as a virtual platform where creators and fans could meet, and fans could encounter new works to spur their enthusiasm for the medium. That focus on enthusiasm for the medium of comics, as well as for the popular culture that is so much a passion in fans’ daily lives, is what has led to the re-launch of Comicon.com.
Comicon.com aims to light that spark of enthusiasm in readers once more, leading them to explore the world of comics more fully, as well as the worlds of TV, Film, and many other fandoms. Comicon.com’s goal is to engage with fans in ways that create a personal drive to support these arts and build communities that continue to celebrate them in the future. The role of Comicon.com is to be educative, incisive, balanced in critical approach, and also relentlessly inclusive in attitude.
Comicon.com is opening the doors on a new era of fan-facing access to comics and pop culture, and they hope you will join them. One ticket admits millions. Welcome, on behalf of Comicon.com.
