I’ve decided that I should go to at least on con this year. It would be awesome if I could get someone else out of their house for a while to go with me. I’ve got 4 ideas:
- Anime Central
Here are the facts of each:
Theme: Anime, Manga, Japanese Culture

I’m not too into anime, manga, or Japanese Culture but I still think it’d be fun to go to.
Theme: Comics, Popular Art, Cartoons
Location: San Diego, CA
Dates: July 21-24, 2011
Likely Mode of Conveyance: Plane
ComicCon always attracts the best cartoonists, writers, and voice actors, as well as generally-known artists in the fantasy and sci-fi arts communities.

Dates: June 23-26, 2011
Likely Mode of Conveyance: Car, Train, Bus, or Plane
It’s a furry convention. Likely to appeal only to me (’cause I’m a furry), Sean (cause they have some damn talented artists there), and one other person who’s secretly a furry and doesn’t want anyone to know.

Dates: August 4-7, 2011
Likely Mode of Conveyance: Car, Train, or Bus
GenCon is the most awesome gaming convention ever. It doesn’t matter what sort of games you play, all gamer geeks are at home at GenCon.
Let me know your thoughts on any of these. Thanks!
