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. Being that we’re an indie review site, I thought that SPACE (Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo) would be a perfect fit. It was known to be small, but passionate which to me was a great fit for someone just getting out there.

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!

The Good:

1) SPACE is all about the indies. You won’t find big vendors or publishers here...

Fantasticon – Lansing 2016

20160305_175752It was a snowy winter’s morning when I set out for Lansing and my first ever Fantasticon show. 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...

Grand Rapids Comic-Con 2015

It was pointed out to me a few months ago that I rarely show my face at any of the conventions that would be considered local to me. As someone who so strongly supports the Indie community, this had me pausing and evaluating my own show appearances. In the end, I decided that the person was right and that I needed to get my butt in gear and start checking out my own local comic scene! It just so happened, that Mark Hodges, the man behind Grand Rapids Comic-Con had asked me to come out in the past, but it had always fallen on the wrong weekend. Not this year! So, sit back, relax, and find out what I thought of Grand Rapids Comic-Con 2015.

The Good:

  • Location – DeVos Place is fantastically easy to access and has a great layout for this sort of event...
