Overview

A gripping comedy-drama that follows a fictional cast of fans and professionals down through the decades, as they attend the annual gathering of America’s biggest comic book convention. "Trust Paul Cornell to find the humanity and weirdness in the comics industry and the rise of organized comics fandom” —Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky

Con & On is the story of five different years in the life of the Vista Al Mar Comics Festival—one year per issue, spanning three decades—from the points of view of a diverse bunch of desperate people whose lives revolve around this greatest show on Earth. Meet close friends Eddie and Deja, aspiring young comics talents whose ambitions threaten to tear them apart; Anthony, Don & Finn, brilliant, boozy and bombastic British creators; and all of the crusty veteran editors, forgotten TV stars, and enthusiastic fans who make the convention experience something to revisit year after year.

Collects issues 1 through 5.
