Year 3 for Florida Comics Experience 2015 was an unusual adventure. In the end, though, we’re thrilled that so many of our fans poured into Famous Faces and Funnies last weekend to make the event a reality. The best part of working on these conventions is seeing a community grow from all the fans involved…
And we’re still growing.
We got a lot of great suggestions for where we should move in 2016, and planning will begin in November of this year for Florida Comics Experience 2016.
For now: THANK YOU to everyone who made this year a reality. Special thanks to Rick from Famous Famous & Funnies, Jake from Space Coast Comixx, and Jo from Humanoids.
Also – thanks to all our costume contest winners!
