We are a little over 2 weeks away from the con and we've had a few changes (mostly additions) with dealers and guests, so I'll repost the entire list. The show is getting bigger and bigger, and we've gotten considerable attention from local media. It's going to be an absolute blast from start to finish. Our website is www.annapoliscomiccon.com
