The Quad Con Today Was Superb!


Today I attended the Quad Con for October up in Saint Charles and it was an outrageous amount of fun! I kicked things off by chatting with my friend, Jack Thomas, of Fortress Comics. He had a ton of amazing older comics for sale. Then I had the chance to chat with the delightful Spike of Lost in Space Toys and Collectibles. After catching up with some folks the line to enter the show had built-up and everyone was let in. The crowd was pumped:

 The guys from Biff! Bam Boom! Comics had a both and I had a lovely time chatting with them and telling them about what was new with me--namely our new baby, Gibson! Tatertot comics and collectibles had a setup and I had fun browsing their wares. Brandon was kind enough to pose for a photo:

I met Galaxy Prop Productions and admired the awesome pieces of props/artwork for sale. Here's a picture:

STL Comics had a booth and I bought two comics from them! You can't go wrong with a first issue of, "Spawn," and a J Scott Campbell Spidey cover:

The owner of Endless Comics, Games, and Cards was at the show and we discussed how in addition to the Florissant shop location he would be opening a Saint Charles shop soon. I told him to keep me updated so I can make a post telling people to stop by once it has a grand opening! I snapped a pic of his booth too:

Bartertown Toys and Collectibles was kind enough to buy some comics I brought to sell or trade. They were really nice and posed for a picture:

I had a chance to admire the comics and fun props of Crystal Lake Comics. Here's a snapshot:

There were even more vendors and creators/crafters than I've mentioned--this is just who was eager to pose for pictures or didn't mind me writing about them! Quad Con was amazing with all the folks selling comics, toys, Funko Pops, vinyl records, things they created, and more. I can't wait for the next show in March of 2024 and will make sure to let all you readers know when it is approaching so you can plan on attending the next Quad Con too--this isn't a show you want to ever miss!
