2018 will mark my 5th year attending the Grand Rapids Comic Con. During the years, I taken many photos, interviewed many people and I managed to squeak out a review or two. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and what my home town Comic Con is all about.
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. I’ve heard about this con for a few years but was unable to attend. That situation finally changed, and I made the trip out this year. What were my thoughts on this up and coming event?
These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.
Spring is the season where new life blossoms into the year. Con season really picks up. Warm weather kicks in and everyone is happy to be rid of the cold weather. How did the months of March through early May go? Let’s find out.
