Fantasticon – S6-EP19 – MT. PLEASANT

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.

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.

Shuto Con 2018 Review

Lansing’s annual anime convention, Shuto Con, descended upon the Lansing Center again. For the last three years, I had a good time experiencing this convention. How did my fourth visit to Shuto Con compare to last year?

2d6 at Shuto Con 2018 (NSFW)

I finally had the opportunity to do a proper interview with nerdcore rap duo, 2d6. Boy, did I regret it. If I wasn’t contractually obligated and held at gunpoint, I would’ve never released this. DJ Stuck Down a Mineshaft with a Broken Leg is a horrible reprobate while Cliff B is pretty cool. All kidding aside, I had a lot of fun talking with these two again. We dove into their albums, their hilarious music videos, their great song titles, video games, pro wrestling, and a Barenaked Ladies podcast. A lot of insults were thrown back and forth in this mad train wreck of an interview.
