CHICAGO – The April “Mainframe Comic Con” … an entire online Comic Con, including guests, artists, exhibitors and even cosplay … was a huge success. So the team decided to do it again. Mainframe Comic Con 2.0 will take place on this upcoming Saturday and Sunday, May 30th and 31st, 2020.

The all-volunteer production staff – anchored by co-founder Chuck Lindsey – is presenting the Mainframe 2.0 again for a charitable purpose. The proceeds will go toward the Direct Relief COVID-19, an organization dedicated to delivering personal protective equipment (PPE) during the pandemic, AND Hero Initiative, a fund that helps comic creators affected by the quarantine. Mainframe Comic Con 2.0 is completely FREE for its online participants on the 30th and 31st … no waiting in line to get access to this amazing line-up of guests (click here).
