THE ONE DAY ASYLUM
A New Fashioned Comic Book Convention
The Midwest Comic Book Association (MCBA) announced the 15th Annual MCBA MicroCon Comic Book Convention will take place in the Progress Center located on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Sunday, April 27, 2008.
MicroCon, expected to be the largest in its history, uniquely brings together many of wildly diverse elements of the world of comic books into a single 30,000 foot facility resulting in what is best described as “The One Day Asylum”
MicroCon, a traditional comic book convention, continues to benefit as a result of the regions ever growing home grown comic book creative community, a numerically exploding fan & readership base and ultimately the recent adoption of cutting edge comic book culture by the much larger mainstream media.
An ideal event for seasoned comic book conventioneers, as well as first timers, MicroCon provides attendees with the opportunity to personally interface with comic book artists, inkers & writers. This includes working professionals, up and comers, independent & alternative voices, beginners, has beens, never will be’s and all creative points in between.
Of course no comic book convention could be complete without hucksters! MicroCon also features a gigantic comic book marketplace with comic book stores and dealers buying, selling and trading all things comic books. There will be literally tons of comic books (Around 100,000 golden age, silver age, bronze age, current and collectible comic books), trade paperbacks, graphic novels, original art, manga, action figures, statues, Star Wars & Trek, collectibles and the list goes on to a reasonable approximation of infinity.
At MicroCon, expectation of the unexpected is generally expected! Costumed characters, hundreds of door prizes, surprise guests, attendees of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, sexes, characters and mundane’s from all walks of life will converge to celebrate a uniquely American art form that is called the comic book.
New and exciting creative alliances will be formed, collector dreams will be recognized or dashed, new friendships will be forged in the fires of common interests, local charities will be benefited, role playing costume characters will be masters of all they survey, creative types will be inspired and all will be as it should be. Something for everyone and everyone welcome!
