Description

The world is over, but the con has just begun. Five years ago, a cataclysmic event obliterated everything within a fifty mile radius of the Los Spinoza Convention Center—right in the middle of Long Con, the world's biggest (and longest) pop culture convention. Underdog reporter Victor Lai barely escaped with his life, but his nerdy friend Dez Delaney—publicist for an indie darling comics publisher—wasn't so lucky.

Praise For The Long Con

“A smart, fun, and funny trip into the world of cons—with a post-apocalyptic twist.”
— Bill Oakley (The Simpsons)

"With snappy writing from Dylan Meconis and Ben Coleman and gorgeously gritty (but fun!) art from EA Denich, the first issue of The Long Con is a very promising lead in to what looks like is going to be hugely entertaining series!"
— Jenn St-Onge (Bingo Love, The Misfits)
