About Planet Comicon Kansas City

Planet Comicon Kansas is the region’s largest pop culture and comic book convention, with a 19 year history. The first Planet Comicon KC was held in 1999 in Overland Park, KS and has grown into a three-day extravaganza attended by tens of thousands of fans from across the country. Planet Comicon KC features the best in comic books, as well as fantasy, sci fi and superhero television and film. It is held in vibrant downtown Kansas City, near the Power & Light District. We will have much more information on this page (and maybe other pages) as the show approaches to assist in attending and enjoying all of the wide variety of activities and guests Planet Comicon Kansas city has to offer.

As the show approaches we hope to add some “Tips and Tricks” of attending Planet Comicon Kansas City to help fans navigate to find those aspects that appeal to their particular interests. We may create a new page, we may post them on this page… just keep watching for more information.
