Fans of Marvel's 'Black Panther' are organizing the very first "WakondaCon" to celebrate  "Afro-Futurism, Tech and Black superheroes in film, gaming, television and comic books."

The event will take place August 3-5, 2018 at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Chicago and will feature all of the things one would expect from this type of convention: speakers, cool presentations and panelists, celebrity meet and greets, exhibitors and much more!

Tickets are on sale now, and different badge levels are available depending on your budget. WakondaCon even offers a Digital Pass for those that can't physically make it to Chicago, but still want to be a part of the convention fun.
