The City of Indio’s Fantasia Comic Con comes into its second year and is creating a big splash with some premier guests and events to draw fans of all ages. This year’s event will be held on May 12th and 13th at the Riverside County Fairgrounds, and will include familiar favorites such as panels, booths, cosplay, video games and vendors with a wide assortment of pop culture icons.

The guest list doesn’t fail to impress! Headlining the 2018 event is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator, Kevin Eastman. Millennials will be excited about the addition of Larry Houston, who produced and directed such 90’s cartoons as X-Men, GI Joe and Captain Planet. Tony Fleecs, who is a writer and artist for My Little Pony, is a fun addition to the list, as well.
