ComiqueCon 2018 Mini Review

ComiqueCon rose from a year long sleep to take place at the Arab American Museum in Dearborn. This comic con placed the spotlight on female writers and artists in the comic industry.

The CONTINUUM 2018

The Continuum is a celebration of science-fiction, fantasy, hard science, music, gaming, animation, film and cosplay.
The Continuum is not your typical convention! We stand out with our well-supplied Convention Hospitality Suite, a Saturday Night Costume Ball, a merchandise area with a wide variety of offerings, several tracks of programming of interest to members and a loyal following of staff and panel participants. Our programming includes literature/sci-fi/fantasy, science/space, music and gaming. There is always something of interest to everyone going on! We also have a video room that screens rare anime and fan-created offerings not seen elsewhere. For NaNoWriMo participants, we offer prep workshops and panels focused on writing.

At The Continuum, you can have the type of day where you attend a tea tasting and history lesson before learning to swordfight, take a breather in a panel where your favorite author discusses world building, then end the day by painting miniatures and listening to someone sing about Star Wars.
