OMG we're all over MegaCon 2012!

February 17th-19th is MegaCon, Florida's largest comic book, anime, sci-fi and gaming convention. It's gonna be awesome and we'll be there doing events!

Before we get into that, know that you can order tickets in advance here. The event is at the Orange County Convention Center in west Orlando, near the theme parks. You may want to look into reserving a hotel room in the area.

Anyhow, we'll be bringing our big guns to MegaCon this year. The super-popular Ninja Olympics are back and we're making the convention debut of Iron Cardboard Robot Cosplay! We will also have a couple Quickdraw! Contest sessions and even a Karaoke Party!

We also have more than several notable panels from our resident experts. A wide variety of subjects are covered and we hope there is something for everyone!
