Information on Reactor 2005


October 21-23, 2005
The Purple Hotel

For years, the Japanese Anime and American comic book cultures have lived in separate realms. Enter REACTOR, a convention created to promote understanding and education of these two cultures in order to provide both fan groups the opportunity to explore similarities and influences. Creative fan panels, informative seminars, and high-energy social activities make REACTOR attractive to those new to pop culture fandom as well as those already in-the-know.
