A brief history of Ithacon
The Comic Book Club of Ithaca, the longest-running comic book club in the country, grew out of a middle-school comic book club, and was formally established as a community organization in 1975. The first Ithacon took place in 1976, and featured 2 guests. The show has grown considerably since then, but the goal has always been to run a convention that is fun for fans, guests, and vendors alike. The convention has had several homes: GIAC, the Ramada Inn (now Hotel Ithaca), the Masonic Temple, the Boynton Middle School, the Women's Community Building, and the former Race Office Supplies storefront. The partnership with Ithaca College began in 2014, with Ithacon 39. Through the years we have continued to be a fan event, run by fans and for fans, with nobody receiving compensation for their efforts in organizing the convention. We have maintained a focus on comic books and providing a way for fan creators to showcase their works while allowing all of us to meet some of the most famous comics creators.
