Yeah it's true. I'm not too sure where you live (not trying to be creepy I swear!) but there is a Con in august in Indianapolis called Gen-Con. It's mainly focused on "gaming" (card, board, strategy, video) but it has comic and other such things there too. Not too sure if that's your thing but it's worth it to check it out. C: And it's in the summer as well which makes it more convenient.
