With billion dollar box office hits like Avengers, Captain Marvel, Shazam, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Batman, X-Men and others, the world of comics has hit the big time!  What do all of those movies have in common?  They all started as a visual story in a comic book.  Memphis Comic Expo (MCX) shines a spotlight on the artists and writers who create the inspiration and stories made popular by the cinematic universe.

2019 will mark the 6th year for MCX, a locally owned, comic-creator focused convention with the largest guest list of any show within 500 miles - including Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Attendance has risen steadily from 1,800 to 3,500 in a few short years with continual growth expected. MCX is a family-friendly environment with diverse demographics. Currently, our content reaches almost 12,000 followers across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter daily.  Our website averages over 150 views per day.

This year, MCX will begin to focus efforts on engaging youth in literacy and expressing themselves artistically. We are adding new panels with topics such as: creative writing, drawing, publishing, and costuming plus various other engaging programs. We aim to create an environment where children, teenagers and adults can be exposed to different facets of the comic book community and foster an outlet for creativity. We are proud to offer free admission to adult-supervised guests age 12 and under.

2019 MCX will feature over 150 exhibitors, including many Memphis-based creators and vendors, that cater to a wide spectrum of interests such as comic books, toys, games, movies, wrestling, television, amine, manga, cosplay, original artwork, handmade items, apparel and much more.  In addition, a roster of comic industry professionals and local celebrities are in attendance for meet and greet. With an enhanced costume contest, video game tournament, board game room, encounters with professional cosplayers, local costuming groups, and movie prop replicas, there is something for everyone!

We are also proud to again host a charity art auction to benefit a local organization. Last year's Drink & Draw event raised over $2000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Your sponsorship helps ensure that MCX can continue to attract the best creators in the comics industry and enhance the attendee experience with new features and activities while keeping ticket prices low.  We look forward to partnering with your organization to better serve the Memphis community!
