  • MegaCon Tampa Bay: A Successful First Year

    I’ve been to a lot of conventions, and I’ve hosted several first-year conventions. That said, MegaCon Tampa Bay was one of the best first year cons I’ve ever attended, which was honestly a pleasant surprise. MegaCon was added to the FanExpo brand not that long ago, and after attending (and not really enjoying) MegaCon Orlando […]

  • RE: Forbes’ “Report from MegaCon 2014”

    I recently attended MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  When writing my main con report I searched the Internet for other recaps of the event and I was frustrated when I came across an article from Forbes that called out all those people who ‘don’t read comics’. I mean, David DiSalvo has been buying comics since they […]


  • MegaCon 2014: Enjoyable Despite its Growing Pains

    This year was my second time attending MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, but the convention itself has been around since 1993. Originally a comic book convention, eventually it expanded to be multigenre – and its attendance grows every year.
