The Fantasticon is a mid-size show created for true comic book and pop culture collectors. The fans that come to our shows are true collectors that are looking for those rare items for their personal collections. Most leave very satisfied as we pride ourselves on having great dealers and artists at our shows. If you collect it, you will find it at a Fantasticon Show. We also are very proud of the fact that our admission price is the lowest of any of the other shows. And the cost for being an exhibitor or artist at the Fantasticon is far less than any other comic cons out there.

Youmacon 2015

Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Youmacon brings a unique all-ages mix of interactive events, celebrity guest panels, and live musical performances to Downtown Detroit. One of its most popular events, “Live Action Mario Party”, emulates the video game experience – often filling the room to fire code capacity. Players participate in gameshow-like mini-games to help their teams advance and win.

Youmacon 2015 will be held October 29 – November 1 at two of the most iconic locations in Downtown Detroit: The world famous Cobo Center, and The Renaissance Center. Separating these locations is the beautiful Detroit Riverwalk.
