About Air Capital Comic Con

What is Air Capital Comic Con?

Air Capital Comic Con (ACCC) was started in 2013 by brothers Don and Drew Woodworth.  Having attended many comic conventions in other cities, they were interested in bringing a similar experience to their hometown of Wichita.  They both have a deep rooted love of comic books and comic book culture and they hope that the convention reflects those passions.

In it's eighth year, ACCC underwent some leadership changes.  Drew stepped away from the business.  Don is carrying on the torch together with his wife Barbara and daughter Kris Campbell.  They hope to continue to bring you the same dedication and entertainment that you have come to know from ACCC.
