May 20-21, 2023 | The Virginia Beach Convention Center | VA Beach, VA

Our Origin

Tidewater Comicon is the brainchild of founder Mike Federali who wanted to see a local comic book convention become a reality so bad he sold his entire comic book collection at garage sales, flea markets (and even on AMC’s Comic Book Men) to make the show possible. The first show was a one day hotel show with an over capacity crowd. Fans gathered, met creators, had a blast, and left with only one complaint.. More Space! Thanks to the yard sales, fundraisers, Tidewater Comicon moved to the Virginia Beach Convention Center where it has continued to grow each year in space and attendance. In 2016, following an impressive Kickstarter campaign, the show reached it’s highest attendance so far with 23,000 fans.

The show has had an amazing roster of celebrities including:
