NEAL ADAMS & CARMINE INFANTINO ANNOUNCED AS GUESTS OF HONOR FOR FLORIDA SUPERCON 2012
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.

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.

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.
At last it can be revealed! After months of planning and plotting – here it is. It’s the panel schedule for the 2011 Baltimore Comic-Con!
Update: We’ve listened to our fans and the costume contest has been rescheduled. It will now be held at 3:00pm on Saturday. Registration forms can be handed in near table #2403 in the main convention hall. With $1,000 up for grabs for the best overall costume and prizes for each of the 10 categories, this is one event all of you cosplayers don’t want to miss! For more information and a complete list of categories, visit our website’s Costume Contest page.
