Nerd Appropriate Goes to MegaCon 2013!

Before I ever attended San Diego Comic-Con, Penny Arcade Expo, or Star Wars Celebration, I wandered the packed halls of the Orlando Megacon.  The Orlando Megacon has been around  since 1993, and has changed and grown a whole lot over the years.  In 1999 the convention was sponsored by the now-defunct Cross Gen Comics, and seemed as though it might grow beyond the Orange Country Convention Center.  With the exception of Star Wars Celebration, Megacon is one of the biggest pop-culture and comic book conventions in the Southeast, and we couldn’t be more excited to cover the con for the very first time in 2013.

No matter what size a convention might be, it’s always great to share space with “our people.”  Here are some of the confirmed comic book folks said to be attending this year’s show: Mark BagleyFrank ChoBob Layton,  Mike PerkinsMichael LarkNeal AdamsMark WaidChris Claremont, , Brandon PetersonAmanda ConnerJimmy PalmiottiBilly TucciGeorges Jeanty,Tim Townsend, Mike ChoiAndrew RobinsonSteve EptingAndy PriceDoug SneydJose DelboMatteo ScaleraSteve McNivenMichael AtiyehJimmy CheungGeorge PérezGail SimoneMike McKoneDave JohnsonDan PanosianBrian Pulido Craig Boldman,and Ed McGuinness
