Get Your Awesome On at Awesome Con

The nation’s capital is getting ready once again to welcome Awesome Con! D.C.’s largest comic con and sci-fi fest is back with guests from every fandom. The event features cosplayers, panelists, indie film and comic creators, and more.

Awesome Con Media Guests

Excelsior! It all starts with the man himself, Stan Lee! The Spider-Man and Fantastic Four creator will celebrate his love of comics with fans. Need a fix from The Walking Dead? King Ezekiel himself, Chary Payton, will be there. (No word on appearances from his pet tiger, Shiva, however.) Feeling Whovian? David Tennant, the Tenth Doctor, will bend time and space to appear. Have a craving for the CW? Come see John Barrowman (Arrow) and Felicia Day (Supernatural).

Cosplay contests and skill building events fill the schedule. Cosplayers and costumers of all skill levels are welcome. The event includes daily contests for adults and kids alike.

Awesome Con, Jr.

Awesome Con has three days of family-friendly guests, activities, and events, and the headquarters for all this is Awesome Con Jr! Bring the kids to the Awesome Con Jr. pavilion to learn to draw super heroes, create your own costume, and pose for pictures with some of your favorite good guys (and bad guys, too)!
