I love these type of events, and have been to some in cities like Louisville and Nashville.  Finally we're getting an event of our own!
POP!CON is the tri-state’s premier convention made for all fans of Comics and POP Culture,  happening April 4th & 5th at The National Guard Armory at the East Lloyd and Vann Ave.

POP!CON was an idea conceived by fans of comics and pop culture with the hope and dream of bringing a high quality Pop Culture and Comic Book Convention to the area.

Check out the special guests page here.  It includes Illustrators, moviemakers, actors (cast members of AMC's "The Walking Dead" among others, UFC fighters and this beast.
