I’ve talked about the previous times I’ve attended the Superman Celebration ( in 2017 and 2018), and it was really exciting to finally head back to Metropolis this year after being away for so long. And – the weekend of Superman Day! So it was perfect.
You may have recently read my post on Fan Expo St. Louis, or even watched my video on my channel, and fully be aware of how exciting it was for me to finally reunite with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes for the first time since I almost died in 2015.
But I figured it’d be nice to give the most special part of my weekend it’s own post, considering everything Kevin means to me.
To say I was excited for Planet Comicon 2022 is a severe understatement. This is one of my absolute favorite cons to attend, and I had a pretty packed, planned out schedule for the entirety of our trip – not just the con itself.
One of my absolute favorite cons returned this past weekend, the weekend before my birthday, like a special gift from the universe. Planet Comicon Kansas City is a well staffed, well organized, fun and friendly convention with something for everyone.
The people behind Cape Comic Con have added two new types of cons to their roster this year: Cape Anime Con, and Cape Fear Con – which is next month.
While I’ve been to cons that have had voiice actors from animes, or merchandise from various anime, I have never been to an anime specific con. But I enjoy anime, and my nieces are getting into it a lot as well, so I figured this would be a great way to test the waters.
The Saint Louis Science Center does a monthly, nerdy event every month called First Friday. As the name suggests, it’s the first Friday of each month, and each is themed differently. They offer a variety of activities, vendors for fandom merch, and occasionally special guests.
And best of all: it’s free to the public, as is parking. There are select ticketed events they warn, but I didn’t encounter any on this trip to know which to point out.
