This May, Motor City Comic Con is returning to the Suburban Collection Showplace for its 28th anniversary! Originally organized, and hosted, by local comic retailer Michael Goldman and family, and now directed by Miriam Kruger, the event was a paramount success and has kept expanding and growing since! The 28th-anniversary special promises to be the best convention so far!
Featured this year are over 170 comic industry guests and more than 20 television and movie actors, including Amy Jo Johnson (Power Rangers, Flashpoint,) Carole and John Barrowman, Kristy Swanson (Buffy, The Phantom,) Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham,) Ramones drummer Marky Ramone, Sting, and Big Van Vader! No less than 30 crafters will be in attendance, both professional and independent, like Scared Crow Steamworks, Ruppits, Shock Studios, KPac Creations, Posh Geekery and MoMo Gear. Throughout the event, guests will be offering autographs, photo ops, seminars, workshops, and panels.
The Exhibition Hall and Artist Alley will be booming this year, with over a million comics for sale, including rare variants and limited editions, plush toys, anime, and pop culture and gaming merchandise. Specifically, the Artist Alley will be hosting a wide variety of professional and freelance artists, offering original prints, sketches, crafts, models, and more.
The Cosplay Masquerade is returning as well, this year, with competitions for both adults and children. Prizes will be awarded by the MCCC team, with additional prizes supplied by their amazing partners and sponsors, including GameStop, Hero Initiative, and Encore impressions. This is a great chance to meet other cosplayers, while showing off your home-made costumes, and artisan skills!
The gaming room will feature multiple tables for RPGS, Wargames, and CCGs, while also including multiple consoles, new and old, and new releases from this year’s lineup of games! Sanctioned CCG tournaments will be hosted throughout the convention, providing you with an excellent opportunity to advance on the local, state, national, and international circuits!
