Wizard World St Louis 2018

Before I say anything, I will immediately give Wizard World STL credit for one thing:

This was definitely an improvement on several of my disappointments from last year, specifically:

  • The celebrity guests were better organized, like they used to be, and not in some weird maze of tables in the middle of the room.
  • There were considerably more vendors – of comics, as well as a variety of others. This was a pretty big deal to me, last year. I was on a mission to buy comics, and only had a handful of vendors to choose from.

So, bravo for that, WW! Thank you for making that aspect more enjoyable.

Cons, cons, and more cons.

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

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?
