Normally, I post Con-related videos as part of Newspace near the start of the week. This week, I’m posting my own video of Forest City ComiCon, the first convention of its sort in my part of the world since the 1970s (excluding Toronto, two hours away).

It succeeded beyond the organizers’ dreams, bringing comics, cosplayers, cake… One man nearly got arrested, walking to the Con dressed as the Punisher. After the police realized the weapons he threw down were fake, they put their guns away, heard his explanation, and drove him to the Con!
