After three years of planning, the first ever Denver Comic Con will be a reality Friday.

Denver has hosted science fiction and comic book conventions in the past, but organizers said this would be the first time a comic con will be held in the downtown Denver area.

“Denver has a great fan culture and that shows in everything from sports to conventions like this that have always been well supported,” said Charlie LaGreca, co-director of the convention.

“The conventions and events in the past have been held on the edges of Denver, but we really wanted to get it into the heart of the city.”

Hosted in the spacious 69,000-square-foot Colorado Convention Center, LaGreca said there will be plenty for fans “to nerd out on.”

“It is going to be a cornucopia of nerd culture. We are going to have stuff from blockbuster movies all the way down to rare Manga comics,” he said. “That doesn’t even include the panel discussions, costume contests, LEGO displays, video games and all the other things we have planned through the weekend for people to check out.”

There will also be appearances from comic book artists and writers as well as TV and movie actors from shows like “The Walking Dead,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

All of which will be available for autographs throughout the weekend.

LaGreca and his partners have been working to bring the fest to Denver for about three years. It has been a learning experience for them.

“There have been a lot of bumps in the road, but we have gotten support not just here in Colorado but regionally and that’s what we really want to build this into. There are fests on both coasts, but we want something for our area to look forward to every year,” he said.

Any money above the cost of putting the convention on will go to the Comic Book Classroom program. The Colorado-based nonprofit afterschool organization teaches fifth- to eighth- graders arts and literacy through comic books. Their display will be the largest on the floor, according to LaGreca, who helped found the program.

“That’s an important program that we really believe in, so no matter how big we get, that is always going to be the biggest booth on the floor,” LaGreca said.

“Some of the graduates will be at the convention as well, working with the artists we brought in and selling their drawings in the process.”

There will, of course, be plenty comic and collectable vendors at the convention, offering rare toys or comics for the right price. The list of participants includes Cheyenne’s own Heroes Only comic store.

“The lineup for this looks really good and it is great exposure and experience for our store,” said owner P.J. Brown. “It is a little stressful, but it is also just a lot of fun.”

Brown suggested first-time convention goers plan their schedules, but be open to changes.

He said the most important thing was to get into the crowd and interact with people.

“Get into the crowd and try and meet some people that are into the same stuff as you,” Brown said. “They are just regular people like you.”

LaGreca wasn’t sure what how big the turnout would actually be.

“I think we are going to be at or near capacity for Saturday at least so people should get their tickets ahead if they can,” he said. “If it goes well we are going to try and have this every year.”

Retail Best Practices Award Winners Announced at 2012 Summit

Retail Best Practices Award Logo

Most Improved Retail Display – Heroes Only Comics & Games in Cheyenne, WY

The winners for the first inaugural Diamond Retail Best Practices Awards (BPAs) were announced during the dinner portion of Diamond’s Retailer Summit in Chicago on April 12. Diamond’s own Executive Director – Business Development, Chris Powell, served as master of ceremonies.

The Diamond BPAs have been established to identify and honor comic book specialty retailers that demonstrate “best practices” in their stores, thereby offering their patrons and community a consistently appealing shopping experience. All comic book and specialty hobby store retailers serviced by Diamond were invited to nominate their store for Diamond BPA consideration by submitting photos of the area(s) of their shop they wish to nominate and a written statement (of no more than 500 words) explaining why they believe their store is deserving of the award. Throughout the morning and afternoon on April 12, retailers attending the Summit were then given the opportunity to review the entries and then cast their vote.

And the initial Best Practices Award winners are:

  • Best Window Display - Level Up Entertainment in Mays Landing, NJ
  • Best Counter Display – Heroes and Villains in Hampton, VA
  • Best New Comics Section – Comic Central in Sanford, FL
  • Best Graphic Novels Section – KINGS Comics in Sydney, Australia
  • Best Kids Section – Happy Harbor Comics in Edmonton, Alberta
  • Best Toys Section – Space Cadets Collection in Oak Ridge North, TX
  • Best Movie or Themed Boutique – Krypton Comics in Omaha, NE
  • Best Out of the Box Game Display – Lone Star Comics in Mesquite, TX
  • Best T-Shirt Display – Generation X Comics in Bedford, TX
  • Most Improved Retail Display – Heroes Only Comics & Games in Cheyenne, WY

“The entries for the first ten Best Practices Awards were all impressive, as I think retailers learned firsthand while reviewing the photos and explanations of the store’s merits in a given category,” said Diamond Director of Marketing Dan Manser, shown below with the winners in attendance. “Diamond wishes to congratulate the 10 winners and thank all those that submitted their photos and write-ups. Feedback I’ve received indicates that the BPAs achieved their goal of spotlighting the stores that best represent the unique retail experience only direct market stores can offer consumers, simultaneously providing fellow retailers with some great ideas of what they cany do and accomplish in their own shops.”

After announcing the winners in these first ten categories, Powell reminded retailers that new BPA categories would be announced, which should help establish a new tradition of honoring some of the world’s most outstanding shops with this industry award voted upon by those that drive it.
