Gem City Comic Con Shining Bright

25 February 2011 by

Gem City Comic Con is Sunday April 3 in Dayton, Ohio at the Student Union of Wright State University.

Groups appearing at the con include: Studio Akumakaze, Ohio Valley Artist League, Vantage House Productions, Ringtail Café Productions, G2 Comics, Twiligh Studios, and more.

The con has already sold out of space for vendors and exhibitors, which is cool to hear and helps get you excited for what will be there.
