This was my 1 year anniversary of doing conventions, and what better way to mark the occasion than returning to the Con that started it all for me. Steel City Con in Monroville, PA!!!
I first debuted "War In The Backyard" at Steel City Con last year, and never looked back. Now a year later, Irregular Mischief Publications is up and running, my third "War in the Backyard" novel is on it's way, I'm publishing my first comic book of War in the Backyard here in 2016, and Steel City Con is a blast!
Great Vendors, Artists and Authors fill the entire venue. You name it you can most likely find it here. Amazing Cos-Players roam the aisles stopping for the occasional pic, famous celebrities file in and greet their fans with smiles and autographs, and the mood of the entire event is that of elated GEEKDOM!
I met amazing Cosplayers, Artists, Authors and the like. Dedicated fans return to the booths, and spread the word to others in attendance of the amount of talent that exists in artist alley. Great deals and rare collectibles line each ailse on the retail floor. Every where you turn you can hear discussions of movies, games, tv shows and super heroes. This is where I am happiest. This is Steel City Con!
I have to be honest. If I could just full on GEEK OUT all the time and do Con's, I would. Conventions like Steel City Con are what give me hope and restore my faith in humanity. It doesn't matter what your race, creed, religion or orientation is. Under the roof of a Con, WE ARE ALL EQUALS. In Con, nobody cares about any of that, because we're all GEEKS! We can all relate, find common ground. We're all Fans of this Sci-Fi show, or that comic book. Love to play this video game, or Cos-play and be whoever we want.
Heck Ya, I'm a GEEK. Darn proud of it too. To me, Con is my zen and it's all thanks to my start at Steel City Con! See you at Steel City Con in APRIL 2016!!!!
Oh, yea. I got to meet Jason Mewes! SNOOGINS!!!
