Tomorrow, October 25, I will be a guest at the 9th Annual Free State Comicon in Lawrence, KS. If you would have told me two years ago what I would be doing in 2014, I would have laughed at you. But, amazing things are happening here at Monster Movie Kid Central. This is thanks in large part to Joel Sanderson, the creative force behind Gunther Dedmund and The Basement Sublet of Horror.
After years of entertaining horror movie fans both locally and throughout the United States through various television stations and that little thing called the internet, Joel has begun to expand the basement. Last year, he launched a new comic book series with issue #2 making its’ debut at this year’s Free State Comicon. He is also launching a new Basement Sublet of Horror magazine with the first two issues being available this weekend. Yours truly has three articles in the first two issues and there will be more to come in 2015. In fact, work is underway for some exciting projects that will lead to some incredible articles. Stay tuned monster movie kids!
The Free State Comicon is an annual event from Kansas City Fan Conventions that supports local artists and writers, such as myself, while gathering fans together for a day of fun. Vendors will be spreading the word about their creations and there will be a ton of merchandise for comic book lovers and genre fans alike. Director Craig Klotz is expecting a record attendance as the weather will be fantastic and with Halloween right around the corner, this is a great event for big kids and little kids alike.
Be sure to check out this great article about the event from The University Daily Kansan where I am graciously mentioned as one of the guests. There will be a lot of great talent there and I am quite lucky to among the guest list.
If you are in the Lawrence area, you have no excuse but to check out the Free State Comicon on Saturday, October 25, at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper Street, Building #21. Admission is only $5, children 12 and under are free, and the doors are open from 10 am to 5 pm. A tremendous amount of talent will be there just waiting to meet you. I hope to see you there!
