The next stop on my comic tour is the Motor City Comic Con next week May 15-17! This is a convention I used to go to with friends as a teen and it's changed a lot! It's in a brand new center: Suburban Collection Showplace 46100 Grand River Ave., Novi, Michigan. And it's 3 days long, bigger and better than ever! Hours are Fri 12:30p-7p, Sat 10:30a-7p, Sun 10:30a-5p.
So many super awesome things are going on there! I for one want to see the Sponge Bob car and meet the voice of Sponge Bob: Tom Kenny! Dave Aikins, an artist on the show, will also be there.
Of special note is that besides the Artist Alley, there is a separate section for "Crafters," which don't usually get a different listing in other shows. Crafters have comic themed jewelry, buttons, perler bead sprites, etc anything else artsy that isn't on paper. Next week I'll highlight other cool things and people at the show!
Seeing old toys in the basement, I wonder when was the last time I played with that huge bubble blower wand...
