Ted Serbinski of Detroit made the point in his May 8 post that the Midwest has an amazing amount of assets in this diamond.  For example …

  • 8 of the 25 entrepreneurial colleges (Entreprenuer Magazine)
  • 6 of the top 20 engineering schools including Chicago, Michigan, Carnegie Mellon, Illinois (US News and World Report)

Hey, what’s that in the center of the diamond?  That’s us – good old Fort Wayne right in the center of the entrepreneurial resources!

Fort Wayne’s Comic Con

appleseed comic con

The Appleseed Comic Con draws comic artists from all around the region to Fort Wayne each year.  But what makes me smile each year is the amazing number of highly talented comic artists from right here in Fort Wayne.  It’s always good to see so many local artists (or in some cases those who studied here and have roots here) creating so many great products.  See you next year!

You can browse through all of the Comic Con artists at http://appleseedcon.com/2013-guest-creators/.   Before you do, enjoy a few pics of some (not all. sorry) of the Fort Wayne artists.
