Among the events and festivities that happened was an appearance by newly inducted Hall of Famer George Perez.  Earlier this year, George had a heart attack and, for now, has had to stop doing conventions until his doctor has cleared him... but he was able to make an appearance today and signed autographs and posed for pictures. He has lost some weight and joked about having to buy some new clothes because nothing fits ...

    MEGACON 2017
    (26 May 2017)
    Orlando, Florida
    MegaCon, the Southeast's largest fan conventions with shows in both Orlando and Tampa Bay, is proud to announce their Love is Love events during MegaCon Orlando 2017 raised $18,405.21. The proceeds raised have been donated to Equality Florida, Florida's civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.

    MegaCon Orlando came together with Marc Andreyko's (DC Comics) Love is Love project to host a weekend of programming to honor the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre during MegaCon Orlando in May at the Orange County Convention Center. The weekend began with a cocktail reception and book signing on Friday, May 26, which brought together some of the comic industry's top talent including George Perez, Tom King, Scott Snyder, Gail Simone, Cat Staggs and Dan Didio, as well as Love is Love project creator Marc Andreyko. The programming ran throughout the weekend leading up to a live art auction on Saturday, May 27.

    "We are so grateful for the fundraising event MegaCon hosted supporting our Honor Them With Action campaign that we launched in the aftermath of Pulse to uproot anti-LGBTQ discrimination and violence," said Nadine Smith, CEO of Equality Florida. "The compassion and support shown by MegaCon and the contributors of the Love is Love comic anthology have been an inspiration."

    Pics from the Love is Love event.  i was so happy to meet George Perez. He said "put your stuff down and let's take a proper picture" then he hugged me. Such a really nice guy. Then I got King to sign some Batman comics. It was a great event last night plus the money went to a good cause. Then there was Gail Simone and a bunch of others. Best bit for me though was when Scott Snyder remembered my name from when I got autographs earlier that day. He talked at our table and then had a conversation with Jim Zub between me about his future comic series. Then Jim Zub drew Aku for me. Really a great night.

Following the Pulse Nightclub Shooting in Orlando, a project in the comic community named Love is Love began to take shape.

The events at MegaCon Orlando will be continuing in this spirit, honoring the 49 lives lost by donating all proceeds to Equality Florida, Florida’s largest civil rights organization. Over 25 contributing creators will be at the show and more than sixty original comic creations from the book as well as artwork donated by creators who did not contribute to the final book will be on the auction block in this fundraising event. The artwork will be on display all weekend at MegaCon Orlando and there is a cocktail reception on Friday, May 26 (tickets are $150 and very limited), and the actual auction is on Saturday, May 27 and is hosted by Dan Didio, Co-Publisher - DC Comics.
