Amazing Comic Conventions has a reputation of bringing the very best talent to fans of Hawaii. When we launched our very first event in Honolulu, we brought the likes of Stan Lee, Rob Liefeld, and more. We followed that through the years with creators such as Jim Lee, Robert Kirkman, Brian Michael Bendis, Todd McFarlane and others. In 2017 we added media component to our event with William Shatner and members of the your favorite Sci Fi and Genre movies and TV. We continue this year with a star from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Evangeline Lilly and surrounded her with best comic talent on the convention circuit today…
And while much attention has been made about this carousel of pop culture personalities, Amazing Comic Con has always kept a key goal from the very start of our events in Hawaii. We want to showcase the very best local talent in comics, art, cosplay and more alongside these stars.
In previous site entries for Amazing Comic Con Aloha we have spotlighted great talent with roots in Hawaii. Look no further than Game of Thrones Artist MOG PARK and Marvel Cover Artist DAVID NAKAYAMA .
