AUGUST 17, 2014 - KC FAN CON #42

New all-time attendance high set on August 17th!  This was the best-attended small show we've ever had!  A total of 423 came through the door for FANCON #42.  The show featured comic book artist KYLE STRAHM, currently performing artwork duties on SPREAD, published by Image Comics.  Kyle chatted with fans, sold prints, signed stuff, and did sketches for folks!  All-around positive reviews for Mr. Strahm!  And we had a record number of exhibitors at the show as well, hitting the 25 mark.  Whoa! We also rolled out the announcement for the 2014 FREE STATE COMICON with hot-off-the-press t-shirts, featuring another great piece of original cover art by Wes Wedman.  For those who haven't heard, this year's t-shirt will also double as a ticket into the FREE STATE COMICON on Saturday, October 25.  Soon, we will have a special web page available to get your shirts in advance, so that you may just waltz into the show!  That's right, it's a t-shirt and an admission ticket all in one!  See everyone on October 25th!

JUNE 1, 2014 - KC FAN CON #41

Okay, that's two shows complete for 2014.  Two down and two (maybe three) yet to go this year.  We had a wonderful time with our special guest ANDE PARKS. A veteran KC comic creator, Ande has pencilled, Inked, and/or written dozens of comics, working with greats like Kevin Smith, Phil Hestor, Brad Meltzer, Tony Moore, Robert Kirkman, and Chris Samnee to name a few co-creators. Thanks for coming out on a Sunday, sir.  The show had great attendance, and we received a lot of positive feedback.  Our 10 sketch boxes were consumed by noon, and we went through the other 40 regular boxes by three o'clock, so hopefully that is indicitative of robust sales for our exhibitors.  As always, thanks go out to sketch box artiste MARIO MORA a.k.a. the Artisan Rogue, for his support and continuing to do a bang-up job on the KC FANCON Sketch Boxes.  Special thanks go to the fans of Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and beyond.  You guys and gals are the adventurous souls that make it all worthwhile.  Hope to see all of you at the next show!

APRIL 13, 2014 - KC FAN CON #40

Weeeee!  Another first for a small Fancon. Five! Count 'em!  Five comic creators at one small convention.  One of our biggest supporters over the last 8 years, Mr. JEREMY HAUN, was gracious enough to come and appear the show.  He's currently doing interiors on BATWOMAN, and is knocking those books out of the park!  We also had four very talented self-publishers who write and draw and publish their own comics.  MARIO MORA who creates his book PAGAN ZEOTROPE (and does the exclusive FANCON Sketch Boxes), NICK PERRY of Redlegger Studios, BILL HOOK of 86'd Studios, both of which are currently creating the EIGHT-SIXED Anthology.  We also had rising star KELSEY WROTEN who is master over the JUKEBOX COMIX empire.  Examples of all of their work can be seen and linked-to from the images below.  Attendance was down a bit from last August, but very close.  We had a total of 396 come out for the show (413 last Aug.)  Not bad, considering it's only been a month since Planet Comicon.  We also wanted to welcome our new exhibitors Ron, Andy, Jenna, and William to the KC FANCON family.  We hope you liked the show, and want to return to sell more stuff in June.
NEXT UP:  KC FANCON #41 on June 1, 2014.  Same time, same place!  See you all there!
