DENVER COMIC CON (a production of the Denver-based Comic Book Classroom ) is a 3-day Fan Convention featuring the best in popular television shows, movies, Japanese Animation, CosPlay, Toys, Gaming, sci-fi/fantasy, and of course… comic books.
As we plan our 2013 show for May 31 – June 2 we would like to invite you to learn more about our organization and we hope that you will be interested in joining us in our educational endeavors now and in the future.

COMIC BOOK CLASSROOM (also known as CBC) is a non-profit literacy and arts after-school program currently designed for children in grades 5-8. As a state standards-based curriculum, the program offers students not only a fun activity to do but solid educational engagement in their after-school time.
Students in our program undergo a six-week instruction in reading, writing stories and eventually creating their own comics, which are then published in a class collection. CBC graduates are subsequently invited to participate in Denver Comic Con as guests to create sketches and/or sell their work.
Currently, everyone in DCC and CBC – from Con Organizers to Curriculum Developers – are all volunteers and proceeds from Denver Comic Con go to the funding of Comic Book Classroom and the furthering of our educational goals. The massive success of Denver Comic Con 2012 earned enough money to allow CBC to greatly expand its mission.

When you walk into Denver Comic Con the first thing you see is the Comic Book Classroom Kids’ Corral, the 2000-square foot area designed to spotlight the CBC program, as well as its students and graduates. Further, it is designed to provide educational, youth-based programming and fun activities for our younger attendees and their families.
