DINK is a fun, first-class expo emphasizing the independent spirit, cultural relevance, imagination, and community of comics, graphic novels, zines, art, publishers, and fans. Our mission to promote and further the impact of their work on the world. Internationally renowned creators as well as local Denver artists will appear.
“Helmed by the same duo that launched Denver Comic Con a few years ago — Charlie La Greca and Frank Romero — along with other Denver geek luminaries such as Jeff La Greca (brother of Charlie and nerd rocker extraordinaire), Nerd Nite Denver impresario Sara Wilson and local author and journalist Jason Heller, DINK promises to bring a fresh approach to the Denver con scene.”
– Cory Casciato, Denver Westword
DINK will give back to the community by working with nonprofit organizations like Denver Drink & Draw and Love Hope Strength Foundation and will also involve an annual program which provides a weeklong, outdoor mountain camp with a focus on comics, literacy, and art for underserved, inner-city youth.
“Giving back has always been an intrinsic part of the events that I’ve created. Coming from a large, working-class family, I was so fortunate to discover the wider world out there through comics, and as a result I have always wanted to embrace and discover a way to unlock that potential for others.” – Charlie LaGreca
Additional plans, programming, guests, and more will be announced in the coming months.
