Silicon Valley Comic Con is on March 18th – 20th at the San Jose Convention Center, around the same time last year when Big Wow Comicfest was held and that’s no coincidence. In true Valley fashion, the Silicon Valley Comic Con acquired Big Wow Comicfest, partly for their history of running and planning comic conventions and because they needed to secure a date and venue for the 3 day event. Even though Apple co-founder Steve Wozniack is only lightly involved in the planning, you can bet that his sphere of influence will resonate throughout the entire event. From special guests to technology themed panels, SVCC wants to differentiate itself from every other comic con in the world. The big question is whether or not con-goers will buy into it.

The sheer amount of comic conventions in California is mind boggling. There’s almost a show every month of the year if you’re willing to travel. But what sets Comikaze from the rest is that it’s STAN LEE’s Comikaze. The man, the myth, the legend that is Stan Lee owns and operates the show along with Elvira Mistress of the Dark. This is one of our favorite shows of the year.

Can’t believe it’s already been a year since Comikaze 2014! This is one of our favorite cons, and for good reason – it’s well produced, draws a lot of celebrity and creator talent, tons of interesting panels, it’s affordable, easy to travel to, and SoCal cosplays come out in full force! We managed to snap some cosplay photos throughout the weekend and have created this galley to share with you. If you recognize or know any of these awesome cosplayers, please send them to this gallery!

The Shortboxed crew was able to check out the last Big Wow Comicfest in San Jose, California, before the reins are bestowed onto Stan Lee and Steve Wozniak next year. We weren’t able to go for both days, but Saturday showcased an awesome variety of cosplayers, including one of our own, Jeremy Dizon, and his twin brother, Kevin, Kevin’s wife, Stephanie, their best friend, Jason, and their little Shortboxers, Ethan, Mason, and Aiden! Enjoy the professional pics taken by Shortboxed friend, Jason Tong. Let us know which ones are your favorites in the comments below or on twitter!
