As mentioned before, if you follow me, you know that I love my Cons!  After starting my Con Season with C2E2, I now await the commencement of my summer Cons, starting first with my hometown Con known only as Awesome Con.  Having attended since its 1st year in 2013, I have witnessed the Con steadily GROW (and I do mean GROW) year after year.  Though the event has slowly revealed info regarding their incredible guest list week after week, today they have released their first official press release.  Check it out below…

Washington, DC (April 13, 2016)Awesome Con, the biggest annual comic and pop culture convention in Washington, DC, expects to attract its most dynamic crowd yet in 2016. This June, fans will experience an impressive line-up of celebrity guests from the worlds of television, movies, and comic books and specialized pavilions focused on science and technology, family activities, and larger-than-life props. Panel discussions bring together noted experts from comic creators to scientists at NASA; costume contests, sci-fi speed dating, and gaming tournaments celebrate all things geeky; and the show floor will feature exhibits dedicated to comics, collectibles, toys, cosplay, and original art. Fun for fans of all ages, Awesome Con continues its commitment to creating an inclusive atmosphere for diehard fans, casual fans, and families. And this year is Awesome Con’s first year in partnership with LeftField Media, an event organizer created by the founder of New York Comic Con.
