Page Intentions: The Outlet Comics Events page aims to be a hub for you to discover and promote all comic related events happening far and wide, from large conventions to local meet-ups and comic shop sales.

Current State: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the necessary reduction of in-person events, we have scaled back the functionality of this page and have shifted focus to mostly online events. Events are available in a list or calendar format and are searchable by date and keyword.  We will add functionality (such as additional search and display options, the ability to list events on your own, or sell tickets) back in as this page grows and it becomes financially feasible to do so.

To List an Event: Send event details and display image to You can also list it in the “classes and meet-up” or “conventions” channels on our Discord server and we’ll make sure it gets added here.

Hero Initiative C2E2 (Unofficial) After-Party

March 22, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 11:59 pm CDT


We’re combining creators and fans for an unofficial C2E2 party that benefits The Hero Initiative.

About Hero Initiative: Many creators that have worked to create the comic book worlds which fans love were paid little for their work, or not allowed to keep their creations. If an artist has been a working comic book writer, penciler, inker, colorist, or letter on a work-for-hire basis for ten years or more, they can apply for aid from The Hero Initiative. Aid can include medical assistance, paying rent, or finding employment (in or out of the comics industry,) and is kept confidential. For more info,

Located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, Nick’s On Wilson has been a local favorite for geeks with Geek Cred trivia and Nerds on Wilson parties for years. They are proud to welcome creators, locals and out of town guests for a night of fun with fellow geeks for a good cause.
