Torpedo Con 2021 will be held from July 23 to July 25 at the Hollywood Palladium. Tickets go on sale today (Tuesday, June 1) and can be purchased at torpedocollectorscon.com.

Four years ago, Dolmayan told KSNV that he first started dealing at small Los Angeles-based baseball card and comic book conventions, shuttling boxes back and forth out of his 1988 Chevy Beretta. By age 25, he was making $60,000 a year selling comics.
