Otakon 2017 — A Capital Idea

I wouldn’t really think a convention like Otakon would have to go through “growing pains,” as it’s been around for over 20 years now. But that’s the situation we find ourselves in going forward. This was the first year of Otakon’s new/temporary home in Washington, DC, until the situation is ironed out with Baltimore. They’ve […]
