Do you love comic books, costuming, or gaming? Well it’s time to get your geek on! Middle Georgia’s largest comic book convention is coming back to Macon on Saturday, February 18th and Sunday, February 19th!

MGA Con (Middle Georgia Convention) is set to have its annual event and for the very first time it will be held at the Anderson Conference Center at 5171 Eisenhower Parkway in Macon, GA.

So “What exactly goes down at MGA Con?” you might ask. Well, you will find many of your favorite artists and media guests, a dealer’s room where you can buy all kinds of comic and gaming related merchandise, panels discussing a wide range of topics, an excellent costume contest, and plenty of tabletop games.

MGA Con has something for everyone. For gamers, there are several role playing, card, and board games available as well as tournaments for Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, Munchkin Steampunk, and X-Wing. If you want to meet some creators, Joseph Michael Linsner of “Dawn” fame will be on hand as well as artist Tracy Yardley and cosplayer “Lili” Lisa Keith among others. Or, if you just like collecting comics, you may be able to pick up that rare issue of Spider-Man you’ve been looking for from one of the vendors in the dealers room.
