Last week, we mentioned behind the scenes convention veteran Mike Scigliano had opened the doors of his new event management company. Today, Atomic Crush Events announced they would be holding an inaugural show in Ontario California.
Comic Con Revolution will be held May 13, 2017, at the Ontario Convention Center. According to their social media, this one-day event will include a full lineup of programming, cosplay contest, along with exhibitors and vendors.

More guests will be announced soon and tickets are available for $25 at the show’s website.
While it might seem like the California convention scene is an overloaded camping tent full of charlatans who see this landscape as a modern day turnkey operation, Scigliano and his team have a proven track record of creating good convention experiences. It wouldn’t be going out on a limb to say this will not be a Comics Excitement ChuckECheese flea market.
