Lake Effect Comic Con
The fifth annual Lake Effect Comic Book Convention was held on Sunday May 25th 2014 and was the most successful yet: attendance was over 1200 – thanks for attending – see you in 2015! As always, a convention like this succeeds because our volunteer staff is tops.
Thanks go out to: Greg, Jesseka, Frank, Ed, Joe, Gemma, Dan, Sarah, Emily, Ruth, Nick, Matt, and Brian. You are the best!
The costume contest was HUGE this year. Cosplay in Mentor Ohio – who’da thunk it?
