Des Moines Con's Story

Des Moines Con is a pop culture, media, and comic book convention in Des Moines, Iowa. DMC was created by Ben Penrod, founder of comic cons in over ten cities, including Awesome Con in Washington, DC. Ben fell in love with Des Moines while visiting his friend Jacqui, and decided that Des Moines would be the perfect location for a new comic con. DMC is produced by Ben's company Nerd Street (established 2011), which also organizes Twin Cities Con, Central Florida Comic Con, Annapolis Comic-Con, Southern Maryland Comic-Con, Sugoi Expo Orlando, and co-promotes the Alaska ComiCon.
