Anyone in the LA area who is bummed over the postponed Wizard World LA show scheduled for September 24-25 should be aware that Power-Con is still on for those dates. This small two-day fan show is focused on Thundercats, He-Man, and She-Ra. It’s a small show but sounds like a swell afternoon if you’re into ’80s animation. More info:
