Episode 14: Friends of Comic Con

episode 14: Friends of Comic Con

Greetings Entreprenerds!

This weekend is Boston Comic Con! My guest this week will be attending the convention (as will I). It’s Alyssa Franks from Friends of Comic Con.

Friends of Comic Con started as an online forum and message board for attendees of San Diego Comic Con to share wisdom with newcomers and make friends with people attending the con. The forum has grown to include New York Comic Con, C2E2 and nearly every other convention. The blog also covers con culture, pop culture, entertainment news, cosplay and much more. Alyssa hosts A Cup of Tea with An Englishman every Sunday where her and Leonard, An Englishman in San Diego, talk upcoming conventions and entertainment news with convention organizers and other industry professionals.

Now, Friends of Comic Con is multi-platform organization dedicated to creating a friendly, innovative community where people can collaborate, learn, create, and expand in an effort to promote individual expression and enjoyment of comics, fandoms and pop culture.
