Awesome Con 2018 Photo Highlights

Each year Awesome Con, Washington, D.C.’s very own comic book/sci-fi/pop-culture convention is getting bigger and better, attendance wise and guest wise. With big name guests like John Boyega (Star Wars & Pacific Rim), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead & Guardians of the Galaxy), and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy & Blade Runner 2049), just to name a few, the Smithsonian hosting their very own FUTURE-CON, and Netflix coming through to promote their own version of the sci-fri classic, Lost in Space, the convention is definitely gaining vibes reminiscent of San Diego International Comic Con.

The biggest highlights of the con for me personally were John Boyega’s Q/A and the Science of Pacific Rim panel, especially with all the in-depth research the production team did to make the jaegers and kaiju realistic.  Do enjoy our photo coverage of the convention below, featuring various awesome cosplayers, and panel coverage from The Science of Pacific Rim, and John Boyega’s Q/A panel!
