The Midwest has some well-known cons – we’re looking at you Chicago, Denver and Kansas City. Heralding from the very center of the country is Omaha Comic Con. From May 29th – 31st a budding con and expo debuts for it’s first annual comic convention. I was able to talk with Matt Fujan about the event.
Michael Bettendorf for Comics Bulletin: I ‘spose first things first, could you tell us a little bit about Omaha Comic Con? What’s it all about?
Matthew Fujan: OCC is a comic con expo right here in the omaha area which truly is the first of its kind. We are committed to making it a fun, friendly weekend event, for the attendees and the guests! If you do not know what a comic expo is, you’re in for a treat!
