Special series: RenCon has something to prove

The Renton City Comic Con has grown its annual event over the past three years to become a Northwest geek attraction. Organizers have innovated cosplay contests, geek awards, and much more.

Yet, organizers say there is a lack of support among some community leaders. Local politics, funding, and "Footloose" all come into play as RenCon attempts to throw its 2018 comic con. NW NERD dives into what it takes to organize a convention, and RenCon's story.
