For today's Sunday entertainment feature, I'm going to do for Motor City Comic Con what I did for Youmacon a year and a half ago, explore the convention through the eyes of Detroit's media. This year, I'll focus on how the local television stations cover it. They seem to love it, with WXYZ, WJBK, and WWJ all uploading multiple reports to their YouTube channels on the event. The most came from WXYZ,* who began hyping it a week in advance with Motor City Comic Con 2016 to be held May 13-15 in Novi.
BAM! POW! WOW! Motor City Comic Con 2016 gears up for its 27th annual, three-day, celebrity-filled metro Detroit comic event.The promotion continued on Friday with Motor City Comic Con happening this weekend.

"Star Wars" is not primarily a comic book franchise, although there are Star Wars comics, but one of the supporting actors from the first movie filmed is a guest and was interviewed by WXYZ.
May The Force be with you, Biggs, and beware the Dark Side!
On the other hand, "The Walking Dead" did begin as a comic book series before it became a television phenomenon, so the series is well represented, as WXYZ was Talking with two stars of The Walking Dead.
Syma Chowdhry speaks with two stars of The Walking Dead at Motor City Comic Con.WJBK also interviewed both actors, beginning with Alexandra Breckenridge at the The Motor City Comic Con 2016.
Alexandra Breckenridge or Jessie from "The Walking Dead" (RIP) chatted with Jay Towers at the Motor City Comic Con in Novi.That segment felt like it could have happened on "The Talking Dead."
Now for Michael Cudlitz at Motor City Comic Con 2016.
Michael Cudlitz, better known as Abraham on "The Walking Dead" spoke to Jay Towers at the Motor City Comic Con in Novi.Cudlitz's wisecrack about a Trump convention turns out to be closer to the truth than he realizes. WWJ's Bill McAllister Asks Motor City Comic Con Goers Who They're Voting For shows why.
Bernie, Clinton or Trump?Bernie Sanders won among this group, while Trump got one vote. No one wanted to support Clinton. As Captain Jack Sparrow would say, that's interesting, that's very interesting.
