Founder and Convention Promotor, Michael Goldman says, “When Motor City Comic Con was founded back in 1989, it started from my passion for collecting comic books introduced to me by my father. We had a couple thousand attendees our first year to over 60,000 last year. Our fans have been so supportive over the years and we are grateful. I am happy to be here 30 years later and offering more content and interaction. We plan to continue to grow and impress for another 30 plus years.”
