Cool, thanks for the info. I already have plans for this weekend, though - not sure if It'd be worth it to try to show up for a short time.

from the front page...

What is the Comics & Toys MonsterCon? Think of it as the most anticipated "Supernatural, Sci-Fi, Superhero Show" on the East Coast. The Comics & Toys MonsterCon is a multi-fandom convention for fans of superheroes, science-fiction, horror, fantasy, games, anime, and performing arts. This year, the convention will be a 2-day event at the Cabarrus Arena & Events Center (www.cabarrusarena.com) on Oct. 4th & 5th. On Saturday & Sunday, you will find a wide variety of merchandise from dealers coming from all over the East Coast & beyond. In addition, you'll be able to meet and get autographs from our featured guests. There will also be plenty of entertainment including gaming, trivia contests, costume contests, movie screenings and much more. On Saturday night, you'll find plenty of music and merriment at the convention after party (costumes are encouraged). The Graveyard Boulevard, The Tremors, Psycho Charger and a few other bands will thrill convention goers with their skele-tunes. Single Cell Productions will also be providing their own style of madness and mayhem. All of that is planned and we're just getting started, so if you're excited about the East Coast's most anticipated "Supernatural, Sci-Fi, Superhero Show", start spreading the word.

Local Fan Force groups from Charlotte and Salisbury will be in attendance as well as the 501st's Carolina Garrison and Rebel Legion's Freedom Base.

For more information on the convention please visit the MonsterCon website!

The cons around in Charlotte need to get some big name star wars signers. Hell, if that Steel City Motor con can get Carrie Fisher why the hell cant we? One would think the cons around here could pull a big name draw like that every few years.

Several years back, HeroesCon got Prowse. This was probably 2000, 2001 or 2002 but it's happened. Lately not so much.
