COSMIC-CON® is the events division of Famous Monsters. Famous Monsters founder Forrest J Ackerman was a champion of fan culture, even becoming the first ever cosplayer when he attended the 1939 Worldcon in a futuristic superhero costume. Through Famous Monsters, he dedicated his life to bringing fans of sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and pop culture together — a legacy that Famous Monsters continues to honor today. COSMIC-CON®, officially established in 2012, developed as a natural progression of Famous Monsters as a means to champion, promote, and foster fan gatherings, including the world-renowned San Diego Comic-Con International. The mission of COSMIC-CON® is to partner with the biggest names in the entertainment industry to bring audiences experiences that are truly out of this world.
