This year’s charity is the NorthWest Arkansas Rape Crisis Center. Northwest Arkansas Rape Crisis Center provides a safe haven of healing and hope to those affected by sexual violence and to constantly work towards a safer future for all through education and awareness. Since 1982, our mission-driven work has offered free, comprehensive support to survivors of sexual assault while actively addressing the individual and community hurt caused by those who perpetrate.

We welcome everyone!

May 16th-17th 2015 • MN State Fairgrounds - Grandstand, Saint Paul, MN 55109

anime, art, comics, cosplay, fan, steampunk, weird, zine,

The MSP Comicon (formerly known as SpringCon), is one of the Midwest’s largest celebrations of comic book culture, it is a unique regional nexus of graphic literature and the wildly diverse communities that fuel it, produce it, and and ultimately consume it. Given the fact that the Midwest has a long standing and somewhat inexplicable reputation of producing a disproportionate number of working comic book & graphic literature professionals, including comic book writers, artists, inkers, etc., as well as being a breeder reactor for new and independent talent, it’s no wonder that FallCon has become one of the leading comic book conventions nationwide amongst the creative community, dealers and especially amongst the fans.

FallCon, one of the premiere comic book events in the Midwest with a growing national reputation, is a celebration of the extraordinary marriage between the written word and graphic arts. A fascinating and focused acclamation of an American born, truly unique, dynamic, ever growing and evolving medium that comic books represent. At FallCon, expectation of the unexpected is generally expected! Costumed characters, hundreds of door prizes, surprise guests, portfolio reviews, attendees of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, sexes, characters and mandate’s from all walks of life will converge to join the party. A One Day Wonder of pure comic book action! Now is the time and FallCon is the place where there’s something for everyone and everyone is welcome!
