In 2003 Granite State Comicon, or “Granitecon”, was a one-day, one-room, no-celebrity, comic book and gaming show. It was definitely small, to be sure, but it was a hit. Granite State Comicon is produced by Double Midnight Productions, organizers of MASSive Comic Con which takes place in Worcester, MA.

Double Midnight Productions’ mission is to provide fans the best in comics, games, and pop culture while maintaining a family-friendly, traditional comic book show atmosphere.
But that’s not the whole story.
Double Midnight Productions started as a small, three-owner comic book store in Manchester, NH. Our first convention was the 2003, Granite State Comicon. “Granitecon” was a one-day, one-room, no-celebrity, comic book and gaming show. It was definitely small, to be sure, but it was a hit.
And, now sixteen years later, that smaller size continues to serve our guests, vendors and attendees well. We’ve expanded the retail side to a second location (Concord, NH), we’ve added a second convention; MASSive Comic Con (Worcester, MA), and we now produce several one-day comic book shows throughout the year.
As we continue to grow our brand, that growth is balanced by our customer service, attention to detail and personal connections; from our Show Producers to the Volunteer Staff. Our goal is not to be the biggest, or have the most celebrities. Our goal is to give everyone who attends our events the best experience possible.
We pride ourselves in providing a more intimate experience – fans, comic creators and celebrities get a chance to mingle and chat and enjoy each other’s company. Being smaller is reflected in our pricing as well. We strive to keep our ticket prices as low as possible, our table and booth rental prices are lower too.
Yes we are smaller, we’re smaller on purpose.
