On July 12th, 2003, Double Midnight Comics brought to NH the first ever Granite State Comic Con. A convention combining comics, pop culture and gaming, Granitecon kicked off it’s inaugural convention with only a few hundred in attendance. As each year passed, attendance and the guest list grew, adding in cosplay, video game tournaments, panels and media to the mix. While the Manchester venue hasn’t changed, the amount of space has grown, from the 8,000+ sq ft the first year of the convention to over 60,000 sq ft! The focus for each con is to create a family friendly environment for attendees of all ages to enjoy, while giving diehard fans a great convention in the state of NH!
