We took a long drive to the Ontario Convention Center to see an artist we admired (Travis Hanson) at the Comic-Con Revolution 21-22 May 2022. This is a low-key comic-con where you have time to meet artists–some old and some new. And you can make your own discoveries.
There’s no big rush or long lines. We went on a Sunday morning. You could get discounted tickets if you bought them online the night before–a difference between $17 to $35.
It’s an easy two-hour quick walk through, but if you’re really interested in artists or other geeky things like science and shopping, maybe three to four hours.
Because the con is so low-key, you have plenty of time to talk to the artists.
You can see Travis Hanson (“Life of the Party: Realities of an RPG’er”):
We did see some cosplay including one really amazing one. So if you need to try out your latest cosplay creation, this is a good place to do it. Think of it as a rehearsal before a bigger con like Los Angeles Comic-Con or Long Beach Comic-Con. You’d definitely want to try these out before you hit something major like San Diego Comic-Con.
The artists we discovered:
- Carissa Williams: Lovely dinosaur enamel pins. Etsy shop: The Onion Cake Store
- Mantrap1989.com: Amazing bat-shaped facemarks.
