Chromic Con and the advent of the weed-forward comic con
Friday, Jun 27, 2014

Chromic Con’s homebase will inevitably be the Speak Easy Vape Lounge in the Springs, where Johnson has already started planning activities including “light saber wiffle ball” and “Tron-style elimination Frisbee” in addition to the appearances. But two Denver clubs, iBake Denver and Maryjane’s Social Club, will also host Chromic Con events. For those who want to see it all, and partake along the way, the event is offering a Spaced Shuttle that will make the rounds between the three clubs for $45, which includes admission to all three clubs.

The aesthetics of the artists speaking and signing at Chromic Con will straddle the lines of marijuana and mainstream.

“Comic book artists who are geared toward the cannabis community are excited about coming and debuting their comics or showing their artwork,” Johnson said. “Their comic books might not be accepted in a mainstream comic con event, but they’re welcome here. We’re hoping to include both — cannabis comics and non-cannabis comics — however this event is definitely within the cannabis realm.”
