Noon-7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday, April 10-12 | Orange County Convention Center, 9800 International Drive | 386-364-1826 | megaconvention.com
It’s that time of year again when those who are into superheroes, anime and science fiction of all types flock to I-Drive and post updates from the annual traffic jam about how far they haven’t moved in an hour. Seriously, though, MegaCon has set up two new off-site parking lots this year in an effort to avoid last year’s gridlock, so check their site before heading down. Once you’re there, you’ll be able to marvel at cosplayers, watch informative panels and get your picture taken with stars from shows like The Walking Dead, Doctor Who and Firefly. If comics are more your thing, do your best to get a snapshot with Stan Lee, the public face of Marvel Comics, but also don’t forget about legendary talent like George Pérez, Darwyn Cooke, Chuck Dixon and tons more.
