* ''Webcomic/HangInThereKogasaSan'' is a low-level LifeEmbellished strip where most of the characters are {{Doujin}} authors, so it has several story arcs where the author, his wife, and their friends attend Doujin festivals in the vein of Comiket. One memorable arc recounts the author's trip to Anime Boston, where he got to experience the differences between Japanese and American fan conventions first-hand.
** Of course, some arcs show less than enjoyable experiences the author has been through, including attending a ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' convention that went pear-shaped because the organizers failed to anticipate the show's runaway popularity, or another where, in order to attend two cons that were already full, he had to attend a nearby con dedicated to urophilia {{Fetish}} comics.

** WebVideo/NostalgiaCritic also ties certain cons into his reviews. They usually end in either his fans going on a rampage against him, or vice versa.

* The cast of ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' attend Comiket 90. Tohru and Kobayashi are both helping Makoto sell his doujin, but Tohru later attracts lots of attention from cosplay photographers with her {{meido}} outfit and [[LittleBitBeastly wings and tail]] showing. [[ShamelessFanserviceGirl Lucoa]], on the other hand, is removed from site because her outfit was too skimpy. Fafnir tries his hand at selling a doujin full of actual working curses, but walks away without selling even a single copy. Makoto and Fafnir later attend Comiket 91, but no attention is focused since they point out that it's the middle of winter. Fafnir once again fails to sell even a single copy.

* ''{{Manga/Genshiken}}'' makes a major deal out of the club's (both current and past members) visits to the same convention as ''Manga/LuckyStar''. Both of these series additionally make a big deal out of a common but seldom-covered "activity" at these: elaborate plans involving multiple people, maps of the convention, and carefully laid timetables to get in line for and obtain a variety of promotional items and limited-edition releases by doujinshi authors (who sell primarily at these conventions) before the supply is sold up.

* Although it does have a championship trophy defended in title matches, GLORY is not known for running shows so much as trying to get wrestlers it deems worthy shows established by other people. The one event it is known for running most closely resembles a women's pro wrestling fan convention and is appropriately dubbed "GLORY Con".

* ''[[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Proven Guilty]]'' takes place in part at a horror movie convention.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheVampireConSeries'' by Kate Paulk takes place in a world where the supernatural is real. Where do they go to hang out/meet up? Sci-Fi/Fantasy Cons of course. Sadly, adventure gets in the way of their plans to just have a good time.
This list shows the last 10 events of 104. Show all.
