Once again Comic Con season is in full swing and like always there are a lot of great conventions to choose from. From SWC to SDCC, if you are a Star Wars there are a few that should be on your must-go list. One of those conventions you need to add to that list is ICCC in Nashville, Tennessee. Thanks to showrunner Michael Havens this convention keeps growing and growing every year, and this year is no different. Matter of fact, it has grown so much that Havens moved the convention to a new location, New Farm Bureau Convention Center. Taking place May 26 -28, 2023, ICCC once again will have an epic lineup you will not want to miss especially if you are a Rebels fan. You can find out more about this great convention by heading to iccollectorsconvention.com.
