POP!: THE COMIC CULTURE CLUB is an open, friendly on-line environment where comic book & pop culture fans, retailers, and professionals can discuss all aspects of the industry -- including comics, movies, TV shows, toys, games, and more!

If pop culture is your passion, POP! is the place to share the love!

If you're a comic and pop culture fan on Facebook, you are invited to join POP!'s Facebook Group.

The Facebook Group is open to everyone and adheres to the following strict rules of conduct:
  • Stay positive! POP! was designed as a haven from the negativity and bickering normally found in other online forums.
  • Respect others! Everyone should be free to love and share their favorite things without ridicule or confrontation.
  • Keep it clean! This is an all-ages group and is not the place to use strong language or share objectionable content.
  • No spoilers! We all consume media at different speeds. Just because you saw it first doesn't mean everyone else wants the details ruined for them.
  • No commercials! POP! is not the place to promote your blog, review site, kickstarter, or personal projects.
Failure to follow these simple rules will lead to removal from the group by its moderators.

Dear POP!Stars,

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the end of POP!: THE COMIC CULTURE CLUB's Cleveland chapter meetings. With over a hundred meetings, our six-and-a-half year journey was an impressive run by any standards -- especially in a comic book industry known for relaunches every six issues!

We would like to thank the hundreds of members who have taken part in POP! meetings and discussions since we began this group in 2011. So many of you have made our Mondays brighter by keeping things positive and sharing the joy of what you love with your fellow fans. Not everyone understood or agreed with our core mission, but those who did helped to make POP! a very memorable and welcome group for all involved.

Over the course of POP!'s lifespan, we've seen lots of faces come and go, but we've also seen lots of friendships formed as people from completely different corners of Northeast Ohio who might never have met otherwise came together to bond over their mutual interests. We've been honored to participate in conventions, collect food and money for charity, and even spin-off a second chapter in Akron. It's been one epic adventure!

While the monthly live meetings in Cleveland have reached their conclusion, the POP! Facebook Group will remain open for the time being so that members can continue with us in our mission to share the LOVE of pop culture without any of the negativity found elsewhere online. More news about the future of the Akron POP! chapter will follow soon.

And even in our absence, we encourage you to keep POP!'s mission alive every day, going out into a culture of fandom filled with hate and venom armed with the most impressive super power of all -- positivity!

Thanks again for all of your support on this wild ride known as POP! We hope you got as much out of this group as we did... and, who knows, maybe someday we'll be back with a reboot... (Nothing ever stays dead in comics anyway...)

Peace, Love, and Comics,

Marc & Jae
