Motor-City-Comic-Con-2018

Show Your Nerdy Side at Motor City Comic Con This Weekend


Picture this: We open on an establishing shot of Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. The sun is shining. The parking lot is filling up quickly. Comic book fans clamor to get inside as soon as possible. They’re here for one thing: to celebrate their love of comic books and pop culture with like-minded fans. It comes but once a year. It’s Motor City Comic Con.

Sorry. I sort of got lost in a daydream. But it’s true. Motor City Comic Con starts today! For three days (May 18-20), the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi will serve as a meeting ground for local vigilantes, boy wonders, wonder girls and more. Motor City Comic Con is southeast Michigan’s premiere comic book convention and it’s always a treat.

Walk the rows of artists’ tables, vendors’ booths and more and you’ll find all kinds of things you’d expect and even more you wouldn’t. One moment, you may be holding an old toy you used to have when you were a kid. The next moment you might see your Hollywood crush walk on by as they head to their booth.

Maybe you’re trying to complete a collection of WWE figures or just want to add another Funko Pop! figure to your shelf. Either way, you’re bound to find something you’ll like.

Last but not least: cosplay! Do you have a killer Hawkeye or Batwoman costume? Maybe you Hulk out like no one else. Don your costume this weekend and attend the cosplay contest for your chance to win prizes!
