The 11th annual Free State Comicon is upon us and Monster Movie Kid is back for his third consecutive year! Once again, I’ll be alongside Mr. Joel Sanderson aka Gunther Dedmund from The Basement Sublet of Horror.
Four new releases will be for sale at this year’s event. Issue 5 of The Basement Sublet of Horror magazine is a tribute to science fiction author James Gunn (Star Trek: The Joy Machine, The Immortals) and issue 6 features great information on Kansas film director Lance Hayes (King Kung Fu). Plus there will be a special edition featuring the exclusive Basement Sublet of Horror trading cards.
However, most exciting for Monster Movie Kid is the special edition Monster Movie Kid presents Richard Chamberlain’s Guide to the Films of Boris Karloff. All of my Karloff reviews are now together in print and in one special collection. Special thanks to Joel Sanderson for putting this together.
Friends of Monster Movie Kid will be there, including CW Cooke (Solitary, Stillwater), Ed Bickford (Robot Pulp, The Birdlander) and Aaron Walther (The Birdlander, Zero’s Heroes). Plus comic legend Steve Lightle (Justin Zane, Legion of Super-Heroes), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), Bill Hook (Eighty-Sixed), Scott Drummond (Nightsmoke) and many others!
Come visit Monster Movie Kid and Gunther at the Free State Comicon on Saturday, October 1, at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence, KS. This great old school comic convention will be open from 10 am to 5 pm with admission at just $5, kids 12 and under are free! Check out the KC FanCon website as well as a really cool promo from Gunther Dedmund!
