    Sorry. Didn't notice this when it first appeared.

    Apparently there are, try Google search on fields Star Wars AND Comic AND Convention AND Michigan and get bunches of links to explore: [link=]Search results[/link] The rest is up to you.

    There are several very small cons across the state, but there is one main one. It's called the [link=]Motor City Comic Con[/link]. It happens in the fall and spring in Novi. That's less than an hour from the tunnel.

    Hope that helps.

    novi - it's usually around the 2nd weekend in May - the exit for comic con is right at the site, easy to get to from I96 - i've been there the last two years - last year was ok (daniel logan was there and very very approachable and cool) but the year before there was better merchandise.
    oh - one other thing - this isn't limited to star wars or science fiction - both times there were female porno stars autographing. weird, weird combination.

    just found the site:

    this year the dates are 5/13-5/15

    I've always enjoyed Motor City Comic Con. I think we've travelled out for it at least twice from Rochester, NY. It was definitely the first one that came to mind when I saw your question.

    Lately, I've felt like the MCCC is a rip off. Between having to pay for parking and to get in, and a limited amount of merchandise that actually interests me. Every other booth seems to be bootleg VHS/DVD sales or something not really related to Comics/Sci-Fi.

    There is a gaming convention and I think they might have comics that takes place in Ann Arbor called U-Con: [link=][/link]

    If there aren't comics, there is at least one Star Wars LARP that's held, it's run by a friend of mine.

    Also over Memorial Day weekend there is a multi-fandom convention called Media*West that takes place in Lansing: [link=][/link]

    I think there is also a con that takes place in January in Troy called ConFusion: [link=][/link] and this link too: [link=][/link]
