People, it’s a busy weekend for cons. Here is a brief rundown of cons happening across the nation this weekend:
Connecticon XVI: This con held in downtown Harford at various venues has an impressive lineup of voice actors such as Troy Baker (who always has large lines), Nolan North, Steve Blum and Vanessa Marshall.
Florida Supercon: The Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale is home to the Florida Supercon. Just a few of their guests include: Mike Colter, John Barrownman, Rachael Leigh Cook, Ryan Hurst, William Shatner, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, and Robin Lord Taylor. Comic guests include John Cassady, Howard Chaykin, Paul Mounts, Plus our favorite streamer, Jarad Weston, will be there in the video game ballroom. He will be hosting a Hearthstone tournament and might be doing a couple of panels.
Readercon: This is a literary con held in Quincy, Massachuesetts. They describe themselve as a con that “features a near-total focus on the written word.” In other words, a con that I want to go to. If you love to read and near this con go and meet you new favorite author.
Anime-zing! Anime Convention: This anime convention is in Davenport, Iowa. They have voice actors such as Dawn Bennett and Marissa Lenti. Our experience with Anime Cons, more than any other specific type of con, the real attraction is the attendees. The cosplay at these events are unreal. I’m sure this one is no exception.
Anime Iowa: This anime convention is in Des Moines. Rachel Robinson and Joel McDonald will be at the con. Again, anime conventions are great to see the people that attend the con. It’s a place life long friendships are made.
ConGregate: This speculative fiction con will be held in the Greensboro metro area in North Carolina. This con has a list of literary guests and science guests. That last part is my favorite and makes me want to go!
Delta H Con: This is a gamer and anime con held in the Houston area. Tom Wyner from Power Rangers and VR Toopers will be there. Besides anime there will be gaming tournaments all weekend.
Tokyo in Tulsa: This con builds itself as Oklahoma’s largest anime, japanese, and pop culture event. Guests include Cassandra Lee Morris and Chuck Huber. This convention will have panels and a charity ball!
Wizard World Boise: Wizard World always puts a good show on! Some of the guests include Ron Perlman, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, John de Lancie, Charisma Carpenter, and Jason David Frank.
Whatever con you attend, have a great one!
