Just curious...we all know about the big name comic cons, but what are some of your favorite lesser known local shows?

I’m in Central Florida, so MegaCon is it for me!!  Wish I had gone to the flagship SDCC when I was in the Navy at SUBASE San Diego!

Megacon is a good con. I will be there in a couple of weeks!

MASSive Con in Worcester is a good one, as is Boston Comic Con.

Geez, I'm halfway between Chicago and Detroit so my "local" cons are C2E2 and Motor City Comic Con... I think C2E2 is one of the larger ones (top ten for sure) and MCCC an't too shabby either.  Grand Rapids Michigan has a newer one that's been going for a few years.  That's about the same distance from as the other two, only North instead of East or West.  That's a nice "smaller" con.

I've never done Motor City, but I have been to most of the C2E2's

A couple artists (Sara Richard is one, don't remember the others) say that MCCC takes good care of the artists. I think it's about 1/4th the size of C2E2 but they usually have pretty good artists and media guests.  That's where I was able to see my #1: Alan Davis!  Also saw George Perez there a different year, and he's really high on my list too. 

I love going to both on shows and Fridays.  MCCC I just don't go Saturday, I drive back and forth on Friday and just do that one day since it's smaller than C2E2 and I can knock everything out in one day.   C2E2... We stay at the Hyatt.  But Saturday I do panels and avoid the floor (unless I'm picking up art that I put in for on Friday.)  SO.  MANY.  PEOPLE.

I like going with my family to Cape Con, in Cape Girardo, Missouri.

Memphis Comic Expo - run by one of our local shops, it's been a great show for the last 4 years.
