Flint ComixCon recap

Motor City Geek attended the 8th annual Flint ComixCon at the Flint Farmers’ Market last month and is here with a recap!  This was an event I have been looking forward to for quite some time; downtown Flint is quite nice so any excuse to visit the Flint Farmer’s Market is welcome.

The event was kicked off by the 7th annual Superhero 5K Run and 1K Fun Run.  The race was hosted by the Weiss Child Advocacy Center and all proceeds went to help the children of Genesee County that have been abused, abandoned, and neglected.  There were adults and children of all ages dressed up in Superhero costumes and capes to partake in this family friendly run!

Free Comic Book Day 2017!

One day a year, publishers and creators set aside the need to do business and in the spirit of the craft they give away works of art and stories crafted with care. No, this isn’t Christmas, it’s Free Comic Book Day! So I hope you got out there and had a good time like we did because the Motor City Geek crew made some miles this year. With five comic shops all over Metro Detroit under our belt, we came away as some very happy shoppers!

Full recap coming soon, plus an interview with Jon St. John!

2017 Marche Du Nain Rouge

Marche Du Nain Rouge

Talking about this event is hard. I’m friends with people from all over the world and when I posted the amazing selfies (for real, my selfie game is strong) I took at the event and they asked what kind of party it was, I froze. How could I explain completely seriously that I was at a big celebration to chase a demon out of Detroit? But that’s exactly what happened. Thousands of enthusiastic participants braved the cold and the rain to march through the streets of Detroit to show Nain exactly where he could shove it!

22nd Annual Motor City Tattoo Expo

Motor City Tattoo Expo took place the weekend of March 3rd-5th and Motor City Geek was lucky enough to check it out. Even though MCG has been before, this was my first time going. I might now work in a “cool” industry (romance writers have all the fun) I come from a very square accounting background and the entire concept of a tattoo expo was rather foreign to me.
