South Florida’s Comic Book, Anime, Animation, Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Video Game Festival returns to Miami, FL. June 29–July 2, 2012 for the largest geek event in South Florida history!
Miami, FL – Florida Supercon returns to Miami for its 7th annual show at the Miami Airport Convention Center. South Florida’s Comic Book, Anime, Animation, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Video Game Festival is set for Friday, June 29 through Monday, July 2, 2012. The 7th annual Florida Supercon will be the largest yet, with over 200 guest celebrities, artists, writers, filmmakers and bands taking over almost 150,000 square feet of convention space. Comic Book Legends Neal Adams and Carmine Infantino have just been announced as the 2012 Guests of Honor to the four day festival that includes celebrity guests, comic book publishers, artists, writers, vendors, Q&A’s, parties, costume contests, anime programming, cosplay, panels, photo shoots, live music, video games and more. The event kicks off at 12:00pm, Friday, June 29 and the fun continues almost around the clock until 6:00pm, Monday, July 2.
Florida Supercon is proud to have two legendary Guests of Honor this year, Neal Adams and Carmine Infantino.
Neal Adams is one of the greatest comic book artists of all time! He helped revolutionize Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and Green Arrow for DC Comics. He helped revolutionize The Avengers and The X-Men for Marvel Comics. He redefined comic book art in the Silver Age and continues to be a huge influence in the industry as an artist, graphic designer and creator rights advocate. He has been working with both Marvel and DC recently on both Batman and The Avengers.
Carmine Infantino is one of the most important comic book creators of all time and will always be remembered as the personification of DC Comics’ Silver Age. Infantino helped to resurrect a dying comics industry in 1956, as the artist who launched the Silver Age with his co-creation; the FLASH and remains the best-loved Flash artist of all-time. In addition to The Flash, he is also the creator/co-creator of dozens of top characters including: Batgirl, Human Target, Poison Ivy, Animal Man, Black Canary, Deadman and many more. Mr. Infantino’s appearance is health permitting and is made possible with the assistance of Vanguard Productions, publisher of The Amazing World of Carmine Infantino.

With the closing of the Wyndham Hotel, the home of Ultimate Horror weekend from the start. the promoters are now up to the task of picking a new venue for the future. They have chosen the Hilton Orlando! Located just south of the Convention Center and right off the 528 expressway. This will be easier access for fans coming from the airport. This year’s dates are slightly different, October 26-28th. Future dates will be the 3rd weekend in October and May-Hem will stay at Memorial Day weekend. Fans still get the $99 room rate. The hotel has a awesome pool area with a lazy river! This looks to be the best show ever.

ICCW Network, LLC presents the first annual DoDeca-Con. You may be asking yourself, “What is DoDeca-Con?” Well, that is an excellent question. It is a comic book/pop culture convention held in Columbia, MO at Kemper Arena (1270 E Boone Industrial Blvd Columbia, MO 65202) on May 4th thru 6th 2012. It will feature independent comic book creators, retailers of comic books, anime/manga, costumes and many others, as well as, a number of informational and educational (though entertaining) workshops on comic creation, cosplay and gaming. Check our schedule for event times.
That may not have been the only question you had. Maybe you are asking yourself, “What’s a DoDeca?” Simple answer, a 12 sided polygon. A dodecagon or a dodecahedron.
Now you’re asking, “What does this had to do with comic books and pop culture?” Also a simple question to answer. DoDeca-Con represents the best of the midwest. The best independent comic creators, the best gaming stores and players, and the best costumes (cosplay).
And being that there are officially 12 states that make up the midwest (The Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Ohio) you get a 12 sided polygon or a dodecagon. It is also a 12 sided die used in Role-Playing games and the first year the con is being held is 2012, so it only seems right.
So welcome to the official DoDeca-Con 2012 website. You can reserve your artist table or your vender booth, buy tickets to the show and other events that will take place that weekend.
Keep checking back for updates on guests and events and I look forward to seeing you at the show.
