MECCAcon was Greg Anderson-Elysée’s first time vending at a comic book convention, as well as his first time in Detroit! Greg has been massively supportive of the black indie comics community, so this was definitely an honor for me to have him here!

Welp, it’s another one under our belt!! #MECCAcon2016 is a wrap!! We had an absolute BLAST! I couldn’t be more pleased with the entire 3 day event! From the book signings at both Source Booksellers and Vault of Midnight, to our comic book convention and film festival, everything was wonderful all the way thru. Our turnouts were wonderful and fruitful for our creators who traveled from all across the U.S.

We also had a lot of bonding time amongst each other over the weekend! From our lovely bed-n-breakfast owned by mama Diane and baba Keith Hoye, 90% of our out of town guests stayed there all weekend long. Vegan and vegetarian food was abundant to say the least, due to the fact that mama Diane feeds you until you burst, lol. This was our second year utilizing their bNb, and all of the guests were impressed. Not only are they highly affordable, but the hospitality is priceless!

Our actual comic con was highly successful! Please don’t ask me how many attended because i am completely clueless, lol. Just know that it was a grand time, and there wasn’t a dead area all day long! Our busiest times were definitely between 1 and 4p, and it felt like the church doors were opened, lol. I am so proud of all of my vendors and participants for impressing the city of Detroit with their books, posters, toys, live art, and our productive and well spoken panels!

This year’s MeccaCon went exactly how i wanted it to. No complaints can be found at this time. If you attended, or even wanted to, i thank you!!
