About Florida Supercon
Now in its tenth year, Florida Supercon is one of the country’s largest conventions for comic books, anime, animation, video game, fantasy, Sci-Fi and pop culture genres, and the largest in South Florida. This 4-day event features celebrity guests, comic book creators, voice actors, industry guests, cosplayers, artists, writers, panels, Q&A’s, films & shorts, costume and cosplay contests, vendors, parties, anime, workshops, video gaming, children’s events and more for the whole family. The convention has continued to grow from its first event held in November 2006 with 1,500 attendees to over 43,000 in 2014.

Who are we excited to meet?


This is a great question. As you, our readers, know we love our Young Adult books. The 100 trilogy is a young adult science fiction trilogy by Kass Morgan. The story is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, when a spaceship housing humanity's lone survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet. If you're not aware, The CW is set to release third season of this fantastic show. So if you're not watching, then I highly recommend that you do now. Catch up to the show and tweet with us along with our beloved YA authors!

The great news is, recently Eliza Taylor star of The 100 on the CW joins her co-star Bob Morley! Yes, we were stalking Supercon Twitter account, there is no shame. If you don't know them, then start watching NOW!
