Comments Off on ICCW Network presents the first annual DoDeca-Con
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.
