Guests include special guests Mike Golden and Bernie Wrightson, as well as Mark Evanier, Marv Wolfman, Chris Giarrusso, Tony Isabella, David Mack and the usual MORE. Good times.

  1. Hey, I’ll be there! Be sure to say Hi. I’ll be the one selling the lady wrestling comic books. XD Its my first show but it looks like it’ll be a dandy.

  2. Mid-Ohio Con is a great convention with very friendly folks. The Henry Brothers run a wonderful show. I’ll be at my booth #625. This year I’ll be surrounded by my good friends Lora Innes (The Dreamer IDW Publishing) Billy Tucci (Sgt. Rock DC Comics.) and Gary Kwapisz (Conan, Punisher Marvel Comics) Hope to see some of you there.

  3. I went on Saturday and had a good time, as I always do.

    Things seemed a bit slower than in previous years, but perhaps that is reflective of the economic times…or perhaps reflective of how many years I have been attending cons; it may all be getting less busy in my mind from having so much experience attending cons.
