    This gets my vote for the best, most adorable obscure geek-reference name for a local convention ever.

    Love that graphic. :D

    My first and last Botcon was the one held in Durham in 2001. It'll be very nice to have the option of having another convention here in NC :)  I REALLY hope I can go.

    Agreed :)

    Is the title pronounced "sharticon" like Charlotte is pronounced "Sharlotte?" If it is, that's kind of funny.

    This is great news. If Botcon ends up being too far away again next year, I am SO THERE.

    Yay! I'll prepare for it.

    It could also just be Char. The planet the Decepticons Occupied in the Generation One cartoon's Third Season.

    All respect to the sharkticons though

    It gives us great pleasure to announce our first guest for Charticon will be none other than Daniel Ross!

    Anyone who doesn't know Daniel's work needs to brush up on their voice actors! We are thrilled to have him join us for the show.

    Big updates to the site! First off I'd like to announce that Registration is live for both Dealers and Artists. Second we have updated the FAQ and Schedule pages with more information about the show. We expect pre-registration for attendees to go live very soon, we are just ironing out a few more details before we proceed.

    Dealer Information: Charticon: Dealers
    FAQ: Charticon: FAQ
    Schedule Information: Charticon: Schedule

    Looking forward to a great convention, thanks!
