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.
If you missed our trip last year: Planet Comicon 2021

It has been a wild few years, but cons are making a comeback, and with it – people are venturing to said cons.
Whether you’ve never been to a con, or you’ve been to twenty – there’s always new things to learn. So I’m going to share with you some of the tips, tricks, and generalized advice I’ve absorbed after several years of con-going.
From the event page:
“We all love a good mystery. On Feb. 4, join us to solve a mystery at the Saint Louis Science Center! The evening will include a building-wide Clue-style mystery game, trivia, a feature presentation on the science behind solving crimes, and educational activities that will require the use of your “little grey cells.” End the evening with a screening of an Agatha Christie film favorite.”
If you haven’t heard – you can currently get a Batman Calzony from Little Ceasars.
The week of Christmas, my nieces needed to do a bit of last minute shopping, so I decided it was a good time to check out some local businesses we could support, as well as giving you all a new place to check out if you’re in the area.
So, we went to The Factory in Farmington, Missouri to check out Aesop’s Treasury.
During Planet Comicon 2021 in August, we decided to venture out for some dinner and see a little of Kansas City while we were there. And of course we chose one of our favorite things to get: Chinese food.
Originally, 2020 was a packed full year of adventure that I was so ecstatic for. Then, the unexpected happened, and I spent that year mostly making comic review related content here on WanderingNerdGirl since wandering was pretty much off the table.
