The Midwest Ethnic Convention for Comics and Art, or MECCAcon, is an annual convention which features young comic and film creators from diverse backgrounds presenting work based on their diverse experiences. The primary mission of MECCAcon is to connect with younger artists and show them that not all heroes look the same, in fact, some look just like them! MECCAcon will highlight comics, international/independent film, afrofuturism, science fiction, steampunk, fine art, music, graffiti, dj artists, handmade artisans, african belly dance, urban gardening, fashion, african martial arts, and more! On Friday September 15th, one day prior to the main convention happening at the Detroit Public Library, stop in at Vault of Midnight in Detroit for an exclusive signing with some of the most prominent comic creators from MECCAcon, including:
4:00 pm: Miguel Blanco and Javier Cruz Minnick
5:00 pm: Jahani Kwatre and Keithan Jones
6:00 pm: N. Steven Harris and Will Focus
Do not miss out on the unique experience of meeting these amazing young talents working on some of the most cutting edge comics today!
