Convention Tuesdays: MomoCon, Mobicon, Treklanta 2018


Welcome to Convention Tuesdays! Every Tuesday, I will feature and highlight conventions happening during the upcoming weekend in Alabama, or within short driving distances from Alabama.

May 24-27 — MomoCon — Atlanta, Georgia

MomoCon LLC was born from the hard work and dedication of a small group of committed people. Split between anime/manga, gaming, comics and costuming, we strive to bring the very best aspects of these fandoms to our fellow fans. From parents bringing their curious “young’uns” to the most dedicated old-schoolers, everyone is welcome. Based out of Atlanta, extending Southern Hospitality is important to us. We would like everyone to enjoy what we do best: having fun!

Major guests include Bex Taylor-Klaus, Mike Reiss, Tom Bancroft, and more.  Major events include a career fair, artist alley, concerts, car show, and more.  Learn more at: https://www.momocon.com/
