With comic conventions slowly starting again in Southern California, Torpedo Comics will be taking over the Hollywood Palladium from July 23rd to the 25th with an expansion of their inaugural show from 2019.
Torpedo Comics themselves are no stranger to the comic book industry as they have in business for quite a few years and have 2 shops (Las Vegas, Nevada and Orange, California). The company was founded by System of a Down drummer John Dolmayan who says about the convention “We crafted a space that will ring true for every collector, and brought in some amazing talent to give fans a chance to meet legends of our industry.”… and what an amazing talent line-up it is!
Torpedo Collectors Con 2021 will see over 100 comic book vendors set up, as well as some heavy hitters in the comic book industry including (in no particular order) Jim Lee, Frank Miller, Donny Cates, Bill Sienkiewicz, Frank Cho, Mark Brooks, and more! Tickets for the convention are now on sale!
Not only will this be one of the first comic cons in SoCal since the pandemic, but it will also be The Convention Collective’s return to conventions as we plan to be in attendance at the show.
Full press release is below with more information on the show.
