I produce TERRIFICON in Connecticut every August and stay focused on just getting comic creator guests. What do you look for in a con nowadays?
My go to Con is Charlotte’s Heroescon. Always a winner. I discovered a very nice well run con called Jekyllcon on Jekyll Island in Georgia last year and had a great time. I’ve hit Megacon a few times as well. As far as what I look for in a Con- a well balanced mix of vendors, comics lots of comics, good guests and panels, people watching the cosplayers, a also a few good food options.
Always Dragon Con in Atlanta. Nothing else like it.
