Akron Comicon was last weekend, Saturday Nov. 10th. Since then, I've seen a very long list of bloggers complimenting the first-ever Akron Comicon, co-founded by Michael Savene and Robert Jenkins. From the sound of it, this is headed to be an exciting annual tradition you won't want to miss.
|Welcome to Akron Comicon 2012!|
I asked Erick from another blog Wonderful Wonderblog to be Akron Empire's special correspondent at this first-time event. He knows more about comics and conventions than anyone else I know, so I trust his judgement about this event. He agrees with what I'm hearing: THIS was a well-organized, well-attended, fantastic event. Erick can't wait for next year's Akron Comicon, already scheduled for Sat. Nov. 9th, 2013. Here's a collection of photos from last weekend's event:
