So why “Comicones”?
The concept of “Comicones” comes from the ideal of equality. People are judged and ostracized for their gender, their race, their choice of or lack of religion, their sexual preference, their political stance, their age and their appearance. But, beneath all of that, at our core, we are the same. We’re all made of the same organic structure. We all eat and drink and socialize. We think and feel and love. We see, we listen, we learn, we grow. In our purest form we are made of the same building blocks.
“Comicones” is a celebration of equality, but also one of uniqueness. At the heart of every Comicone is a cone and every cone is the same. The cone represents our skin and bones, our organs and muscles, our building blocks at their most basic. It’s the details that make us unique.
Every character starts as a cone. Some become heroes, some superheroes, some villains. Others become princesses, while others become Timelords or wizards. Some Cones are “Weird”, while others are “Thrilling”. There are demons, sheriffs, dancers and bounty hunters. Each one the same, but at the same time, unique in their own way.
Comicones represents all walks of society and we want to celebrate all aspects of pop culture. We aim to provide gender equality and provide as many female characters as we do male characters. Women are a huge part of pop culture and it’s time that is reflected. We want icons from all cultures and countries represented and soon we’ll start including historical and influential real-life Comicones.
Come celebrate the world of equality and individuality with “Comicones”.
