For the first time in two years the Kirby Museum has the full schedule of comic cons and shows we plan to attend this year. Some booth setups will offer our full or partial line of merchandise sale – items in our gift shop plus more, while others are a small setup with our professional scanners to scan and add pages to our Jack Kirby Digital Archive. We will update this list as the season progresses.
We hope many Kirby fans, collectors and Museum members will visit us at these events:
San Diego Comic Fest!
Thursday, April 21 – Sunday April 24th
Four Points by Sheraton, San Diego, CA
We will have many of our items for sale. We will not be scanning art at this event. Rand HOPPE, museum Trustee will moderate panels at the show.
About the Show
The San Diego Comic Fest is the friendly comic convention with a casual atmosphere and an intimate scale that allows fans to mingle directly with professionals and exhibitors. It’s the place where you can indulge your love of comics, science fiction, and films, and meet an outstanding array of professional creators without high-priced tickets, crowding, or long lines.
San Diego Comic-Con International
Wednesday, July 20th – Sunday July 24th
San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA
We will have our full line of merchandise and special show items for sale. Bechara Maalouf has generously provided a table for us at his Nostalgic Investments booth for scanning Kirby art! If you are plan to attend the con and have Kirby art, please bring it to the con to have it archived.
