Virtual Indie Comics Convention CRoM Con VI & Indie Comics Cast This Wkd

Pops Van Zant is a lifelong fan of comics and is the founder and host of CRoM Con. “CRoM” is the name for the organizers’ “Comic Related Madness” mascot, a Facebook group for indie creators and comic book fans. With the cancellations of so many comic book conventions this year due to the pandemic, CRoM Con was born.  This weekend marks their 6th which grew out of the lack of live cons and Pops’ friends needing a place to “set up a table.”


Organizers hosted the first show back in April which they started planning when Emerald City Comic Con went down. Organizer Pops Van Zant had launched Comic Related Madness shortly before then and it had a small, but active following. That’s when he wondered, “How can I help my creator/artist friends in my Facebook group Comic Related Madness”.  At that time the group was only about 500 members.
