IHC first official activation at Comic-con was in 2008 with a performance by Glass Candy, but their founder, Franki Chan, has been attending since 2003. They know the convention, and the world surrounding it, inside out. It has always been their mission to head to the biggest pop culture gathering in the world and bring some of their flavor to the mix. That goal has resulted in partnerships with such legends as SPIN and Flaunt Magazine, Viceland, Funny or Die, Skybound Entertainment and more. We’ve even brought Andrew W.K. and his full band down to rock the con.
More than any other activation in our rolodex, Comic-con, our presence and the content we create there, speaks the most to what IHEARTCOMIX is all about: bridging the worlds of music and geek culture.
