Summer 1 Day by STL Comics, which prides itself on being all about comics and related merchandise, sounds like something quite enjoyable!
The Summer 1 Day is--as the name implies--a show that takes place over a single day (This Sunday, August 13th) and it will be going from 10AM to 5PM. It will be in an event-space at the Holiday Inn on 10709 Watson Road in Saint Louis, and has free parking and a very reasonable admission fee of 5 smackers (with kids 10 or under able to attend for free). I spoke with the show and was excited to hear that there will be vendors from over 7 different states all with a variety of cool comics and local and regional guests with experience in the comic industry will be in attendance too. Also, the CBCS will be present and accepting comics to be graded!
I'm excited for the Summer 1 Day and will be there Sunday eagerly checking out the comic-goodness on display. See you there!
