Dragon*Con 2008

Everything has a con these days. Comic cons, Star Wars cons, anime cons...you name it and chances are there's a convention centered around it. And this weekend in Atlanta (or Hotlanta as some natives like to refer to it) is the 2008 Dragon*Con. Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US. Those of you looking to go and get your comic convention fix should note that are some industry big shots that will be there, including Dexter Vines, Mark Texeira and Stephen Hickman among many others. The event will be hosted at three hotels that are all interconnected, and those hotels are the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Atlanta Marriott Marquis and the Atlanta Hilton. Pre-registration is sold out, so if you want to go you have to get there early and drop $90 for a four day convention "membership," while single days will run you $30 a piece. So if you're going to be in Atlanta this Labor Day weekend (or live there) and are dying to go to a comic convention, Dragon*Con isn't full out comics but it may satisfy that itch. Dragon*Con 2008
