As you know, I went through a somewhat insane couple of weekends a while back, in which I wore myself with three different cons. I’ve already covered the first two – Wizard World St Louis and Planet Comic Con – now it’s time for the final con: the STL Comics Winter One-Day.
Alright, folks. Here’s my first con haul of the year!
PREPARE FOR DELICIOUS NERDY GOODNESS!
Possibly my first purchase was this multi-Harley print by Mostafa Moussa – I don’t have it framed yet, so here’s the two you can order from his website if you dig ’em.
For the last month, roughly, I’ve been an exceptionally busy gal on the weekend. Between the first weekend of February until the first weekend of March, I’ve been at some sort of con every other weekend:
- Wizard World St Louis
- Planet Comic Con (in Kansas City)
- STL Comics Winter One-Day
HOLY EXHAUSTION, BATMAN! My poor wallet hurts.
However, it was a pretty fun to have so many, so close together, to compare how different they felt. Different levels and experiences, etc. So, while I plan to post about each one individually, I’d like to take a moment to compare the three.
I first heard about the STL Comics Summer 1 Day show when I saw a flyer at Villainous Grounds, a while back. It sounded awesome – a con focused on comics, with loads of vendors, and only $5 admission for adults. THIS was something I severely needed in my life, since our area feels like it’s lacking this sort of event. That was one of my huge complaints about Wizard World St Louis this year – where the hell were the comics?
It’s that time again, boys and girls. Wizard World St Louis – a time I can attend a con and
drive my things home at the end of each day, and not have to worry about safely getting everything home in luggage that may or may not arrive at my destination with me. This particular con makes my little collecting heart happy. BUY ALL THE THINGS!
My con prep was a little more involved, this time. I had two new bags to try out – reviews to come on those, plus I needed to sort through some of my comics to figure out what I needed to fill in some gaps, if the dollar bins would be kind to me. So, my handy dandy notebook of lists got a few pages added to it. But, aside from those things, I also needed to locate shirts, roll up posters, find my plastic protective sleeve things I use for prints, etc. Don’t even get me started on trying to figure out panels and schedules. Ooooh boy.
This was actually one of my least busy cons, but somehow felt like I was trying to do more. Funny how that works, huh?
