Indy PopCon Comes to Convention Center May 2014

Yesterday, I wrote about Indiana’s first Comic Con, which will be held at the Indianapolis Convention Center March 14 – 16, 2014.

And then a friend told me not to forget Indy PopCon this May.

“PopCon?” I asked. “What’s PopCon?”

It’s a convention that will make every good nerd think they died and went to heaven — it’s 150,000 square feet of comics, cosplay (dressing up as costumed characters), video games, Internet culture, science fiction/fantasy, anime, TV and movies (so lots of Dr. Who, I’m guessing), art and more.

It’s a nerd convention about nerd fun, and I’m going to be first in line.

Indy PopCon will be held Friday, May 30 through Sunday, June 1, and it features a veritable flashing, blinking cornucopia of fun stuff to do.
