Here's the latest news from our sponsor!

HELLO COMIC ART & POP CULTURE FANS!

Since Bob Jenkins and I sold Akron Comicon last year, we've expanded our team to include Robert A. Kraus, independent publisher and founder of RAK Graphics, to work on several projects we hope will appeal to comic art fans, from casual readers to serious collectors, and to the aspiring writers and artists working to make their mark on the comic-book entertainment medium and beyond.

We are calling our new direction Collectors-3-Productions, a partnership of three experienced collectors and enthusiasts established to preserve and present our individual interests through a series of ongoing public events starting in 2021.

We are taking the “comic-con” concept and dividing it into three basic categories with the intent of creating low cost events all comic-book and pop culture enthusiasts can afford to enjoy. We are calling our efforts “The 2021 Microcon Series.”

And, just in the last week we have completed our team to facilitate a fourth category starting in 2022. Joining us is Mike Maxim (Horror Host Mr. Maniacal) and Cleveland media memories chronicler, radio, and television personality Mike Olszewski!

We are very excited to share our plans with you in of our first newsletter. If you want to continue to receive information about our shows, please like our page(s) or email us at [email protected] to request our newsletter—or both!

We hope you will join us in our new adventures!

Sincerely,
Michael Savene

HERE IS THE PRELIMINARY DESIGN FOR THE 2021 3-SHOW PROMO FLIER!

Since we sold Akron Comicon, we've been quit busy creating and planning several events as the Collectors-3-Productions.

We've found a way to continue what we started with Akron Comicon in a way that will allow us to meet family needs. And keep our shows affordable for comic and pop culture fans to enjoy!

Stay tuned. We are looking forward to seeing you next year. And, not just once... three times!

ALL OUR PLANS ARE COMING TOGETHER!

Hello Comic Art & Pop Culture Fans!

Since Bob Jenkins and I sold Akron Comicon last year, we've been joined by Robert Kraus, independent publisher and founder of RAK Graphics, to work on several projects we hope will appeal to comic art fans, from casual readers to serious collectors, and to the aspiring writers and artists working to make their mark on the comic-book entertainment medium.

We are calling our new direction Collectors-3-Productions, a partnership of three experienced collectors and enthusiasts established to preserve and present our individual interests through a series of ongoing public events in 2021.

We are taking the “comicon” concept and dividing it into three basic categories with the intent of creating low cost events all comic-book and pop culture enthusiasts can afford to enjoy.
Here is a brief description of each event and supplemental activities:

THE ADVENTURE IN COMIC'S COMIC-BOOK & TOY SHOW! (Saturday, April 17, 2021)

We invite you to join us on our latest adventure. An adventure in comic-books and toys! A one-day event where comics-books and toys are the stars of the show. The show takes place at the Goodyear Hall, located at 1201 E. Market St. in Akron OH 44305, from 11am-6pm. Exhibitor setup is from 7-10:45am. Admission is $5. Parking is free.

THE COLLECTOR'S CONNECTION POP CULTURE COLLECTOR’S SHOW! (Saturday, September 11, 2021)

The Collector’s Connection Pop Culture Collector's Show is scheduled to take place at the Goodyear Hall, located at 1201 E. Market St. in Akron OH 44305. The swap meet takes place from 11am-1pm; and the show opens to the public from 1-6pm. Exhibitor setup is from 7-10:45am. Admission is $5. Parking is free.

THE COMIC ART EXPO: A CELEBRATION OF SEQUENCIAL ART! (Saturday, November 20, 2021)

The Comic Art Expo is an annual one-day event featuring comic creators, special panel presentations and activities focused on the comic art form. It’s a great opportunity to meet the creators of your favorite comics, purchase original art, get their autograph, and learn about their careers. It’s not a comic convention. It’s an art show. The show takes place at the Goodyear Hall, located at 1201 E. Market St. in Akron OH 44305, from 11am-6pm. Exhibitor setup is from 7-10:45am. Admission is $5. Parking is free.

THE MOBILE COMIC ART MUSEUM!

The purpose of The Comic Art Museum is to promote and preserve the comic art medium through informative displays at our events, comic conventions and other community events.

While the primary focus of the museum will be on newspaper comic and comic book art, it will also include medium influences such as books and pulp magazines and their representation on radio and through theatrical and television releases. In addition, the displays will also include vintage memorabilia, toys and all related collectibles.

Our hope is that the mobile museum displays will work toward establishing a brick and mortar museum in Akron, Ohio.

THE COLLECTOR’S CONNECTION COLLECTORZINE MAGAZINE!

The Collectorzine Magazine is a fanzine. The first issue is scheduled to be released March 19, 2020. Our publication is intended to increase fandom and complement our scheduled activities.

For anyone unfamiliar with the term, a fanzine is a “magazine” usually produced by amateurs for fans of a particular form of entertainment. Back in the early days, fanzines were even xerox copies staples together and mailed or handed out to the fanbase. We hope to capture the nostalgia of that time and continue the tradition!

We are currently scheduled as a quarterly fanzine for collectors of modern and vintage pop culture collectibles—with an emphasis on comics books and comic book collectibles—we are interested in a wide range of pop culture memorabilia.

Our goal is to provide entertainment, accurate information, and encourage others to get the most out of their hobbies!

Chakan the forever man

CHAKAN
CHARACTER FACT

The Reaper’s Curse

“You shall never know rest or peace as you wander this world for eternity. Each night supernatural horrors will haunt your dreams, and the pain of their victims will be your pain. When they are bitten, you will feel the bite. Your sleeping hours will be torturous until you slay all the beasts, ensuring an unending misery for you.”

“Your waking hours will be spent hunting and slaying these creatures, and you will suffer grievous wounds and unbearable hardships, but you will not die! No, instead, you will slowly, painfully heal, and as the weight of this eternal curse rolls on, you will crave the solace of the grave, but that will forever be denied you.”

“One last thing, Chakan, your face will bear my visage, and your eyes will burn with my hell-fire."

So saying, the stricken warriors' face withered taut to his skull, and his eyes blazed like Satans' coals.

"In leaving, let it not be said that I am without mercy," Death grinned, “There can be an end to the curse. If all the beasts of the dark are slain, then you may find your rest.”

Death left the once proud Chakan in wretched agony, stripped of all but the most basic of mystic powers. His abilities to control the forces of nature were nearly gone. The Spell caused his red, mortal blood to become a black liquid that granted him immortality, but it made his complexion and skin appear grey and dead. He was just a shell of the powerful warrior mage he had been once the Reaper’s Curse Spell took hold of him.

The warrior had begun a wretched and woeful existence that day, the day that he became Chakan the forever man.
