So what is JABEcon? Well it stands for Japan, Animation, Books, and Entertainment Convention, but it is more than that. JABEcon is a gathering of fans, professionals, and most of all: geeks. This is a chance for our local community to foster interest and discussion about all forms of geek media. It is really an all ages celebration.
