A-Kon celebrates its 30th anniversary this year by moving back to Dallas from Fort Worth, taking place this June (27-30) at Fair Park, a historic complex that’s home annually to the State Fair of Texas. By all accounts, it’s an exciting time for the Texas con community, but also a nervous one for the many… Read More A Promise to the Fans: Interview with A-Kon’s New Owner, Frank Powell

Yesterday, I attended A-Kon for the first time. It was a wonderful experience, and certainly the best I”ve had at a con. There were certainly minor issues (and maybe major ones I’m unaware of), but that’s to be expected. Overall, I had a tremendous time with staff, guests, and attendees. I tried to reflect a… Read More A-Kon 24: Going to Church
