Appleseed Comic Con

Appleseed Comic Con May 16-17, 2015: Indiana's best comics & art festival in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne! Appleseed Comic Con was founded with a singular purpose in mind: celebrate comics and the comics community.

Comics is an art form, and it is an art form that is supported by an incredible community. To that end, we have made the art of comics, and the creators responsible, the focus of the show. Appleseed Comic Con is proudly held every year at the Grand Wayne Center in downtown Fort Wayne, IN.

Operating as usual

Always listen to the art.

Relive the inky magic!

Dozens of comic book artists, writers, vendors, collectors and enthusiasts descended on Fort Wayne’s Grand Wayne Convention Center last weekend for Appleseed Comic Con 2015, and Indiana’s premier comics and art convention did not disappoint.

Adam Savage Builds Himself a Screen-Accurate Captain Kirk Chair | Nerdist

Man, we need one of these for Captain Kruse this weekend. (Like he ever sits down at Appleseed. Ha!)

When will Adam Savage not live the life every nerd wishes he or she could? Hopefully that answer is never, because then we wouldn't be able to swoon over such feats of fandom as building Captain Kirk's chair in one day. If there was anything I remember wanting the most as a young Star Trek fan, it w…

Busco native combines teaching and love of comics into lucrative and rewarding career

"[N]ot only should we relish the very fact that we’re alive, we should make an effort to leave things better than we found them." Peek behind the curtain at the Wizard of Appleseed.

FORT WAYNE — A love of comic books, a knack for marketing and a love of teaching led Busco native Zack Kruse down an offbeat path to becoming a university instructor, an organizer of one of the state’s largest comic book conventions and a comic book writer.

Thanks for the love, Visit Fort Wayne!
