CHICAGO – With large gatherings becoming unlikely in 2020, how will the comic book legion celebrate their heroes? “Mainframe Comic Con” has the solution. Their idea is to put an entire Comic Con – guests, artists, exhibitors and even cosplay – all online.

The all-volunteer production staff – anchored by co-founder Chuck Lindsey – is presenting the “Mainframe” for a charitable purpose. The proceeds will go toward the American Red Cross, an organization on the front lines of the pandemic, AND Hero Initiative, a fund that helps comic creators affected by the quarantine. Mainframe Comic Con is completely FREE for its online participants on Saturday, April 25th and Sunday, April 26th … no waiting in line to get access to this amazing line-up of guests (click here).

The big three in the star power guest line up starts with headliner Kevin Smith. The cult film director and comic book advocate will appear on Sunday the 26th. Clark Gregg from Marvel Studios “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” headlines Saturday the 25th. Also appearing on Sunday is David Dasmalchian, with his team of creators for his new comic book, “Count Cowley.” And among the line-up is Seth Green (“Family Guy”), a reunion of the Cast of “Clerks” and author Chuck Palahniuk (“Fight Club”).

And even though everything is virtual and online, all the Comic Con familiarity will be presented, including “Artist Alley” (comic book artists and their wares), exhibitors, comic book auctions, cosplay costumes (submit by photo) and much more. Click the link below for all the details.

In a Podtalk with Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com, Chuck Lindsey – the co-founder of the Mainframe Comic Con – talks about putting together this unique online event, the incredible guest line up and his influences in the comic universe.

The Mainframe Comic Con will take place April 25th and 26th, 2020. For all the details and to participate, click MainframeComicCon.com.
