There was a time, not so long ago, when Triangle-based comics fans had to travel to Charlotte's HeroesCon for an annual dose of convention mayhem. But since 2009, NC Comicon has grown from a modest enterprise in a Morrisville strip mall to an extravaganza that packs the Durham Convention Center with costumed crusaders, who flock to meet national talent like My Chemical Romance singer-turned-comics writer Gerard Way, this year's returning marquee guest. In addition to mingling with a wide variety of indie and superhero comics creators, you can buy geek stuff to your wallet's discontent, sit in on panels both practical and philosophical, and branch out into related events like the ComiQuest Film Festival at the Carolina Theatre or the interactive LEGO workshop in the convention center. And since NC Comicon's website has a tab just for cosplay, you can count on stiff competition for the best Harley Quinn or Doctor Strange get-up of the season. —Brian Howe
