Mississippi Comic Con (MS Trade Mart in Jackson, Mississippi, June 23-24):
We didn’t make it to the Mississippi Comic-Con this year because this little cutie had her baptism.
We wanted to attend. Meeting Linda Blair would have been awesome, and we just finished watching The Office so meeting Kate Flannery would have been a great start to a collection for that franchise.
Since we didn’t make it to the con, here are a few links to stories about the con:
A set of articles from the Starkville Daily News (Hail State!) about a young man who operates a lemonade stand to make it to the Mississippi Comic-Con. (1, 2, and 3)
An excellent walk through the show floor! (Check out the youtube channel for more great stuff!)
Louisiana Comic Con (The CajunDome, Lafayette, October 6&7): Ryan Hurst from Remember the Titans and Sons of Anarchy will be appearing at the con. We met him at the Space City Comic Con, and it was one of the highlights of that trip to Houston. Also appearing will be designer and illustrator Kathryn Shuff. You can see more of her stuff here.
Gulf Coast Fan Fest (Mississippi Coast Convention Center, Biloxi, October 13 & 14): Hercules! Hercules! – Kevin Sorbo will be making an appearance at Gulf Coast Fan Fest. He will be joining Ray Park, Sam Jones, Peter Davison, Jason Mewes, Denise Crosby, and Seth Gilliam. This is going to be a great con, and we can’t wait for it!
Pensacon (Downtown Pensacola, Pensacola, February 22-24, 2019): I don’t know how Pensacon does it, but they get guests announced for their next con as soon as they present one closes. Ok, we do know how they do it. They treat their guests fantastically and equally. Artist Tony Isabella has remarked to us how wonderful he gets treated at this con. It shows in the guests that they get. I wouldn’t be surprised if plenty of artists and celebrity guests spread the wonderfulness of Pensacon amongst themselves. Here are just a few of the guests announced for 219: Kevin Conroy, Jonathan Frakes, Catherine Tate, Orlando Jones, Timothy Zahn, Charles Fleischer, Sean Gunn, Paul Freeman, Julian Glover, Diamond Dallas Page, Karen Allen. This is about one-fourth of the people they have announced. We will go through them more as we get closer to the con. Also, it will be Nola Nerd Baby’s first birthday on the Friday of Pensacon! She will think it’s a giant party for her!
