It Really almost didn't happen.
Super Jersey Comic Expo was conceived after the wild success of The Middletown Comic Show, which was a bi-annual event until November 2019.
It was decided to change the Spring show each year to a larger format event under a different brand, but with the same concentration on comics & customer service.
We look up to events like Garden State Comic Fest, Heroes Con, Baltimore Comic Con, Nickel City Con and other ACTUAL comic-centric conventions. Unfortunately they seem to be too-few & far between these days, often "pop culture" conventions that are disguised as comic conventions.
We have ZERO issues with pop culture events, we attend many of them annually, we are just purists in a way.
After multiple postponements between 2019 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the first-ever Super Jersey Comic Expo blasted onto the scene on November 6th 2021 with an attendance of just over 1,900 humans through the door.
Our 2023 event will attempt to outdo our first two events without getting an ego or overinflating prices to keep the show affordable!
Super Jersey Comic Expo is produced by a small team of comic & pop culture enthusiasts with significant experience in the world of events. We attend conventions, we vend at conventions, and we are diehard pop culture fanatics that wanted to build something amazing in an already-thriving state for cons- New Jersey.
