Comic Convention – InterGalactiCon in San Diego June 16
InterGalactiCon is a new comic convention that opens the door to an intimate universe for nerds. Free Your Fandom™ at a con where you can relax, interact and participate without the stress of larger shows. Get ready to geek out on the coolest stuff from every known universe like only they know how. It is a place for all kinds of fans to gather, see the things they want to see, and have some crazy imaginative fun together. InterGalactiCon launches into the fan galaxy on June 16, 2018 at the Town and Country in San Diego, CA. Learn more and get tickets here. There is even a VIP Party on June 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm for those who want to mingle with the speakers and other fans.
Founder Steve “Captain” Kirk says “InterGalactiCon brings the best parts about fandom to the forefront. We’re reclaiming our freedom to geek out how we want. A con that’s created by fans, for fans. Exhibitors and speakers are chosen by fans. Experiences are designed by fans. And, of course, we’re staffed by fans. This is about building our community.”
A year ago, Kirk led a normal life. Then, much like Liam Neeson, he realized that his career and passion had given him a very particular set of skills. After a decade as a global executive for PlayStation and two decades building the hacker convention DEF CON from 150 attendees to 25,000, he could bring people together like Captain Kirk and run events with the precision of Spock. A life-long gamer, founder of a lightsaber combat school, host of a Star Wars podcast, and someone who proudly flies the flag of the Rebel Alliance outside his house, he has the geek cred to lead.
So he left his job and gathered the Guardian Council, a dream team of nerds from every fandom, to build InterGalactiCon. Together, this Council has over 100 man-years of experience running conventions and events. The result is an interactive, intimate fandom universe truly made by the fans, for the fans and of the fans. Even the head of the security team, known as “The Keepers,” is a Knight trained in real-world lightsaber combat.
Take a break from the real world, and play dress up as your favorite cosmic creature, or mingle with fans at the VIP Party on June 15, 2018 at 6pm.
