UPCOMING: Indiana Comic Con, March 30-April 1, 2018, Indianapolis

Indiana Comic Con, March 30-April 1, 2018, Indianapolis
*Disclosure: I will be attending the Indiana Comic Con as media. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

In late March, I will be traveling to Indianapolis for the Indiana Comic Con, and I'm very excited to attend.

I've actually never been to Indianapolis—it's about a 4.5 to 5 hour drive from the Detroit area. The story of how I became interested in attending the Comic Con is funny: I wasn't even following them on Facebook, but their ads kept popping up in my feed. I saw that Neville Longbottom (aka Matthew Lewis) from the Harry Potter series will be attending, then I saw that Noah Schnapp (Will Byers, from Stranger Things) will also be there ... my curiosity was officially piqued.

Just a few of the guests that will be attending!

Sean Astin will be there, too—I met him in 2014 when I was attending the Entertainment New Media Network conference, in Anaheim, CA, which was a great experience.

Other attendees include Sean Young, from the original Blade Runner, as well as Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride), Walter Jones (Power Rangers), and a slew of voice actors: Rodger Bumpass (Squidward on SpongeBob SquarePants), Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko on Rocko's Modern Life), and Charlie Adler (Aaahhh!!! Real Monsters, Transformers series, and Tiny Toon Adventures).

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't *most* excited to see Matthew Lewis, aka Neville (I'm a HUGE Harry Potter fan) but I'm looking forward to seeing many of the other actors and voice actors that will be present, too.

Information about the Comic Con:
  • It runs from Friday, March 30th through Sunday, April 1st, and tickets can be purchased here.
  • A 3-day ticket is $60, but you can also purchase a 1-day ticket ($30 for Friday or Sunday only, or $40 for Saturday). 
  • All admission sales are final - no refunds.
  • If you're staying overnight, the comic con has partnered with a few area hotels for some discounts - click here to view those. Rates range from $104-139 per night, and some include free breakfast too (travel tip: make sure to check out the parking rates, as well, as most are an additional $30/night).
This will be my second time attending a comic con, and I'm curious to see how the experience compares to my previous one, at the Motor City Comic Con in 2015.


Have you ever been to a comic con before, or to Indianapolis? Feel free to leave me any Indy recommendations for my stay, as well!
