“When we launched our first Comic Con Revolution last May in Ontario, California we built the show with the focus on creators and the work they create,” said ACE Co-Founder Mike Scigliano. “The concept was received incredibly well. Fans are excited about comic cons that feature great comic book and creative arts talent. Our inaugural show in West Palm Beach will be built around that same core concept. We are excited to bring the Revolution to West Palm Beach. We have a great deal of family and friends in the area so it will be very personal for us.”
