Out of the Ashes of Universal FanCon, Wicomicon Pop-Up 2018

This week, diverse pop culture fans from all over the world will be coming to Baltimore en masse looking to celebrate their fandom and their communities. Unfortunately, for many of these people, their plans abruptly changed due to the “postponement” of Universal FanCon. Fortunately, the WICOMICON Pop-Up 2018 has been put together to help #SaveTheDay!

The name “Wicomico” is derived from the Algonquin words meaning “a place where homes are built.” The pop up convention will take place in a historic building at 1100 Wicomico Street in Baltimore, MD. WICOMICON 2018 will be a home for fans and artists left homeless by the postponement of FanCon.

The convention promises acclaimed names in the comic book, arts, and entertainment industries. WICOMICON 2018 will open its doors starting at 10am on Saturday, April 28 and run until 7pm. In addition to dozens of exhibitors, this unique pop-up convention will also feature panels, cosplay contests, surprise guests, and a wide variety of food options. Admission at the door will be only $10 ($5 for FanCon ticket holders) and free for children under 12.
