SILVER AGE COMIC CON HISTORICAL FUN FACT
Silver Age Comic Con has a long history of spreading the love of pop culture from a humble beginning. On October 14, 2014, a small convention was born titled Campbell Con in Campbell, California. It was the very first and still the only pop culture convention in Campbell, California. Campbell Con rolled on from 2015 to 2018. It was recognized by the Mayor and City Council of Campbell, but with such success, the manager of the city venue decided to no longer allow Campbell Con to use the venue. The manager had a disdain for cosplayers and didn't want Campbell Con in a venue she managed.
In 2018 Campbell Con moved to West Valley College in Saratoga, California. Again making history as the first and only pop culture convention in Saratoga, California. 2018 would be the only convention for Campbell Con in the Saratoga Venue. Other venues were difficult to find as hosting an event at the California venues became unfeasible for non-corporate shows.
In 2019, the city of Reno, Nevada invited Campbell Con to come to their city and conduct a pop culture convention. Campbell Con was in full gear to come to Reno until the COVID-19 pandemic took over the world. Campbell Con was never named for the city in which it first appeared but was named after the mascot Agent Campbell who was and still is a super agent character. Agent Campbell was inspired by actress Lana Wood, the first special guest signed for Campbell Con back in 2015. The plan was to bring actress Lana Wood back to Campbell Con and have the convention at Circus Circus because Lana Wood was in the James Bond film "Diamonds Are Forever" and the inspiration for the convention and the mascot. Unfortunately due to bad health, Lana Wood could not make the event.
It was at this point that Campbell Con was renamed Silver Age Comic Con, and Agent Campbell became superhero Silver Age which can be seen in the comic book "Team Colossus #2." Campbell Con was not the first California entertainment event to come to Reno, Nevada. Oakland Raiders followed and became the Las Vegas Raiders. Businesses began to leave California for Nevada, and eventually, the Oakland Athletics baseball team would also move to Nevada. Silver Age Comic Con became the official comic con of Nevada, with Silver Age as the official superhero. Silver Age Comic Con is purely Nevadan and has weaved into the culture of all those in Nevada with great pride to serve all in Nevada. Silver Age Comic Con brings family fun entertainment and a great love for community as Silver Age Comic Con is organized by locals.
