Denver Comic Con

Hope you enjoyed Denver Comic Con 2016. Get your costumes ready for next year's premier pop-culture fan experience in The Mile High City. Please check back for the 2017 dates. 

Denver Comic Con (DCC) is a three-day, family-friendly fan convention featuring the best in comics, along with popular sci-fi and fantasy TV shows, movies, Japanese animation, cosplay (fan-created costumes and costumed skits), toys, gaming and celebrity panel presentations. To buy tickets, see DCC's website

STAR-STUDDED LINEUP

The 2016 event featured its strongest guest lineup so far with Stan Lee, legendary Marvel Comics writer and producer known for "Iron Man," "Fantastic Four," "Hulk," "Spider-Man," "Thor" and "X-Men"; Lena Headey from "Game of Thrones"; Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley from "The Vampire Diaries"; Ralph Macchio of "Karate Kid" and "The Outsiders"; and many, many more. 

'STAR TREK' CELEBRATION

Denver Comic Con also be celebrated the 50th anniversary of "Star Trek." Guests included John DeLancie (Q) from "Star Trek: Next Generation" and Garrett Wang (Ensign Kim) from "Star Trek: Voyager." Also, DCC attendees will have the opportunity to see Manu Intiraymi (Icheb) from "Star Trek: Voyager." He announced his planned anthology film, which will feature fan-inspired stories gathered from 50 years of Star Trek conventions.

Popular anime voice actors Vic Mignogna (Naruto Shippuden) and Todd Haberkorn (Sgt. Frog) screened and discussed the sixth episode of their award-winning series "Star Trek Continues," which picks up the adventures of the crew of the Starship Enterprise after the show's cancellation in 1969.

Also, the fan-favorite YouTube series "Trekyards" was in attendance, filming new episodes and bringing surprise guests of their own.

IT'S HULKING HUGE

In 2012, Denver Comic Con's inaugural year, attendance reached 27,700. The following year attendance jumped to 61,000, and earned DCC Best Fan Convention by Westword. In 2015, a record 101,500 attendees made it to DCC, many dressed for the occasion. 

YOU CAN LITERALLY TASTE IT

Denver knows beer, so it's fitting that Denver Comic Con has its own brew. Each year, Breckenridge Brewery crafts a beer specifically for DCC each year and asks the public to help choose the name. This year's is Severus Snapricot, a fitting tribute to the late Alan Rickman's Harry Potter character, Severus Snape. Past editions of the DCC beer have been The Fantastic Pour (2012), The Caped Brewsader (2013), Brews Wayne (2014), Hulk's Mash (2015) and Snape-ricot (2016). The brew is available for a limited time at select breweries around town. 

A FUN WAY TO LEARN

DCC is a program under the Colorado nonprofit Pop Culture Classroom, whose mission is to inspire a love of learning, increase literacy and celebrate diversity. Each year, DCC hosts a literary conference, offers more than 400 hours of educational programming and provides hundreds of family-friendly activities.
