Rocky Mountain Conference on Comics and Graphic Novels (ROMOCOCO) has a new name! After reading through all of your suggestions, we found that one theme united them all: progress. Doing work that picks up right where a comic book’s last panel leaves off. It was then that we wondered, “If the standard length of a comic book is 22 pages, what’s next?” It was then that we had our new name.
PAGE 23 represents everything we’re working to create: the next scholarship, the next curriculum, the next publication. Therefore, in the coming CFP, and at the coming conference, you’ll see ROMOCOCO re-branded as PAGE 23’s LitCon. We’re still tied to Denver Comic Con, and will still be holding the LitCon at the same time as DCC. For now, our old ROMOCOCO email address still works (we’ll update everyone when that changes). Our page, however, will change.
Because Facebook seemed to be a fan of our old name, they wouldn’t let us change this page to PAGE 23. So we made a new page, here:
If you have a chance, visit us there and like the page. If you don’t, no worries. We’ll be migrating over all the content, links, and “likes” this week. After that, we’re going to shut down the ROMOCOCO site, knowing that all our content will be preserved on PAGE 23’s page. If you need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out on the PAGE 23 Facebook page.
Thank you so much for your continued support! We look forward to seeing you in Denver.
Page 23 supports comic book scholarship through its LitCon, which is partnered with Denver Comic Con, and occurs annually in Denver, CO.
We’re What’s Next
