Yesterday, The Outhouse was the first to report on the brewing battle between Comic Con International, the longtime promoter behind events like San Diego Comic Con, Wondercon, and Alternative Press Expo, and Salt Lake Comic Con, a convention celebrating its second year this September. In a brief statement to The Outhouse, CCI explained:
"We are the registered owner of the Comic-Con trademark and confusingly similar variants. When confusion arises with regard to our name, we are obligated to protect our mark." - Comic-Con International
You can read an overview of the story in our full report here. You can also read our short interview with SLCC co-founder Bryan Brandenburg here.
The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw. Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
