BACKGROUND

The Great Lakes Comic-Con has been in the Metro-Detroit area since 2010.  We try to focus our events on comic books, toy collecting, and nostalgia, as opposed to creating pop culture events - as other conventions are doing these days.  So, things that you will see and experience at the Great Lakes Comic-Con will have some connection to collecting comic books and toys.  We pride ourselves in bringing top industry talent to the Metro-Detroit area for each of our February Comic-Cons.  We also try to bring something unique to all of our events - whether it's creating an overall event theme, providing high value comic book prizes, having an authorized/certified signing event, or hosting rare stamp unveilings based on comic book characters/movies.

The Great Lakes Comic-Con hosts 4 events annually.  Two of them we call Comic Expos (the look and feel of a smaller collector's show), one we call "Halfway to Comic-Con", and the fourth is the Comic-Con (which is a much larger comic book and collecting event).  Each event has its own theme and philanthropy.
