Tidewater Comicon is Virginia’s fastest growing comic book convention and returning to the Virginia Beach Convention Center with Celebrity Guests, Comic Book Creators, Arcade Room, Panels, and Events.
Tidewater Comicon is the brainchild of founder Mike Federali who sold his entire comic book collection at garage sales, flea markets (and even on AMC’s Comic Book Men) to make the show possible. The first show was a one-day hotel show with an over-capacity crowd. Fans gathered, met creators, had a blast, and left with only one complaint… More Space!
Thanks to the yard sales and fundraisers Tidewater Comicon moved to a 37,000 sq. ft. space at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. Again the crowds came in, met creators AND celebrities, had a blast, and left with only one complaint… MORE SPACE!
Tidewater Comicon doubled the space for 2015 and added Special Guests Sam Huntington, Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Kelly Hu, and Chloe Dykstra. The show broke its previous attendance record with over 16,000 excited fans and families.
In addition to organizing the show, Mike has reached out to public schools to offer Super Hero Visits for the kids and local libraries to offer comic book themed events and movie nights.
