SPACE 2016

20160410_173031bIt’s been quite a while since I wrote…no wait, it was just last month or so, wasn’t it? Okay, scratch that line and let’s start over again. It’s been quite a while since I took myself on a road trip to an out of town comicon/comic convention.

Since I seem to be a bit rusty at this, I’m going to go back to a style of event writing that I used to use. Why? Because I like it and because it sum things up in tidy little packages and who doesn’t like those? Ready? Let’s go!

Honestly, if I weren’t completely filled with cabin fever and the urge to be around other people, the snow would have kept me curled up cozy inside. Thank goodness for cabin fever because what I found was a great little show!

If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I can be fairly picky about my events. I have expectations after seeing some really great ones. I’m thrilled to say that other than one issue (which wasn’t the event’s fault), this is a great little show! From my understanding, this was the first time that this show had been held in Lansing...
