Meet The Team
This convention is for you!
Indie Comics Creator Con boasts an experienced and passionate team behind the scenes, with Matthew Sardo leading the charge. He’s joined by Rocko Jerome, writer and producer of the comic called GHOST Agents, who brings ten years of experience managing panels to IC3 as the Director of Programming; and Anthony Composto, Editor-in-Chief of Monkeys Fighting Robots, who will ensure the Indie Comics Yearbook shines the spotlight on lesser-known books and creators.
Matthew Sardo - Convention Director
After spending more than 15 incredible years immersed in the comic book industry, from retail to publishing, I couldn't be more thrilled to embark on the natural next step of my career path with the creation of IC3. This venture is the culmination of my passion and experiences, and I'm eager to share it with the world.
My vision for IC3 is simple yet profound - to establish a convention that not only nurtures and empowers creators but also brings together a vibrant and engaged audience. I want IC3 to be a haven where creative minds can thrive, connect, and showcase their talents without financial barriers hindering their journey.
Beyond its professional goals, IC3 holds a deeper aspiration - to evoke the warmth and camaraderie of a neighborhood block party. I envision every attendee walking through our doors to instantly feel at home, welcomed by a community of friends who share a common love for comics and storytelling.
IC3 is not just another convention; it's an authentic celebration of creativity where artists, writers, and fans alike can revel in their shared passion. I am committed to curating an unforgettable experience, fostering an atmosphere of joy, connection, and creative exchange.
So, I invite you to join me at IC3, where we'll come together as a family of comic book enthusiasts, forging lasting friendships and making memories that will linger long after the event concludes. Let's create something extraordinary together, a space that embraces talent, uplifts spirits, and leaves everyone with a sense of belonging. See you at IC3!
Rocko Jerome - Director of Programming
Rocko Jerome is the Writer/Producer of GHOST Agents and has proudly collaborated with 27 up-and-coming artists on that project...and gotten them all paid for their work.

Anthony Composto - Indie Comics Yearbook Editor-in-Chief
Anthony Composto is the Editor-in-Chief of Monkeys Fighting Robots. He's loved comics since he was a young boy reading Archie digests from the grocery store, though these days, he defers more to the works of Jeff Lemire, Eric Powell, and Don Rosa, to name a few. His goal is to bring attention to lesser-known books and creators and give them the spotlight they deserve.
