Now in its 33rd year, Motor City Comic Con is known for being the largest and longest-running comic book and pop-culture convention in Michigan. Like certain wines, the event is proving it gets better over time. In addition to featuring new activities this year, the convention also allowed guests to pre-order wristbands that allow them to skip long registration lines and start their adventure quicker upon entry to the venue.
