Mid Con Comic Show. This is a brand new comic book convention scheduled to debut in Iowa City during the weekend of September 19-21, 2014, at the Clarion Highlander Hotel.
There will be an assortment of comic book professionals present including Phil Hester, Mike Norton, Steve Seeley, Ryan Browne, Jeremy Haun, B. Clay Moore, Seth Peck, and Alex Grecian. My understanding is that there will be opportunities to meet the various creators at the convention.
It's $25 for the weekend if you preregister. It's $35 for the week if you purchase your ticket after September 1st or at the door. If you buy an admission ticket for yourself, you can also bring two children age 10 and under for free with you.
I haven't seen a definitive schedule of events for the convention, but that should be released soon. As of August 8th, I'd heard that "26 panels throughout the weekend, plus a number of special events" had been arranged. Assuming that nothing has changed, one of those panels will be an Archie Comics panel featuring me. Some of the panels will focus on Cosplay (i.e., doing it, how to Cosplay, and how to make cool props). There will also be a Cosplay ball
And of course there will be a Dealers Room where you can buy all sorts of stuff.
Check out the website and don't forget to save yourself a bit of cash when you preregister. I look forward to seeing everybody in a month!
