Genghis Con 2014 will be held on Sunday, November 30th at the Lake Erie Building - Registration Now Open!

For the past five annual Thanksgiving weekends Genghis Con has been a touchstone event for comics and independent print media in the North East Ohio region. From Pittsburgh to Columbus to Chicago, the region’s most prolific comics creators and zinesters have converged on Cleveland to share their stories and artwork, and help foster an environment for the open dialogue about the nature of comics, storytelling, and the small press print medium. Genghis Con 2014 is primed to be another exceptional year with a couple of major changes to the show.

Big Change #1: Genghis Con is moving! The sixth annual small press and independent comics convention will be held from 2pm-7pm on Sunday, November 30th, 2014 (Thanksgiving weekend) at The Lake Erie Building (AKA: The Screw Factory), 13000 Athens Ave, at the south end of Lakewood, Ohio. This means we’ll have a ton of extra space for even more exhibitors.

Big Change #2: We’re getting rid of the $5 charge to get in! Genghis Con will now be FREE to all who wish to attend, making it an even better way to spend your post-Thanksgiving Sunday!

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank The Beachland Ballroom for all the support and giving us such a great home to launch Genghis Con and help it develop over the past five years. We encourage everyone to continue to support them, and enjoy all the awesome things The Beachland has to offer!

Those comics and zine makers interested in Exhibiting Genghis Con 2014, please head over to this REGISTRATION FORM.

Moving to a bigger space and making the show free for attendees means we have to make another big change, and so we will be charging a minimal fee for tables this year- $25 for 3’, $50 for 6’ of space.

We’re excited for another amazing year. Help us spread the word and don’t forget to register!

Morning retweet - check this out! Mark your calendars! Apply for the show!

I think it goes without saying that these comics I do for this pornographic website are not safe for work?

Anyway, hooray for more comics!!
