Green mountain nerds let their geek flags fly
Vermont, my home state, had its very first comic con late in October. I rarely get to attend these sorts of events but was rather excited to check this one out in my back yard.
Not a huge event by any means but hey its about quality not size right? It didn’t take long to scope out a costumed hero standing outside the event entrance (punisher). I feel like the cosplayers are half of the attraction at these types of events. I didn’t even wear my crooked ninja uniform. Shame. I was like Geraldo opening Capone’s safe but with a better payoff.
Inside I was happy to see a solid variety of booths. Vendors, artists,writers, a few TV celebrities, and some local business tables. My favorite toy vendor, Yin’s Collectibles, had a booth but I didn’t buy anything because they get most of my cash inside their store anyway.
Who am I to not buy toys though? This cool older fella had a slightly disorganized booth selling his stuff and i was probably his best customer that day.
I was at a comic convention so yeah I also got comics. Picked up an interesting book that combines my enjoyment of both comics and professional wrestling. Haven’t read it yet but the creator was a quality guy. Always nice chatting up the artist/writer.
All in all the show was a blast. A 2015 date of Labor Day has been set already for the next con so the show was obviously a success. Oh and if you’re local keep your eye out for a possible toy show in the near future.
