Unite to Unveil Silicon Valley Comic Con

Bringing Pop Culture and Technology Together, Silicon Valley Comic Con to Feature Top Celebrities, Film, TV, Independent Artists, Comic Books, Cosplay,
Video Games, Music and Technology at the
San Jose Convention Center the Weekend of March 19-20, 2016

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak is no stranger to pop culture. Before inventing the personal computer, the Woz created the technology for color video games. He hosted the US Festival music events in the 1980s, has made numerous TV appearances, including American favorites “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Big Bang Theory,” and has been portrayed on the silver screen in the Steve Jobs biopic films. No other technology icon has touched pop culture and entertainment like the Woz, so it may not be so surprising that he is now bringing Silicon Valley a unique Comic Con experience in March 2016.

“In life, the most important thing is to have fun, and Silicon Valley Comic Con will be the place to experience all your favorite things at one great show,” said Wozniak. “Today, technology is pop culture, in Silicon Valley and around the globe. Entertainment and innovation inspire and bring so much joy to the world, and I’m so excited that we will showcase both at Silicon Valley Comic Con. It’s finally the Age of the Geek, and we’re ready to celebrate!”

Woz called upon his friend Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters, to help him bring Silicon Valley its very own Silicon-style Comic Con. “The one thing I want Woz to keep in mind is this: With great power comes great responsibility. I love the idea and can’t wait to see it. Excelsior!” said Lee.
