First, the Southside comic book show. This show took place on Saturday September 14th in Alsip IL. The show is run by Rocky a.k.a. Matt Murdock and his family, who work together to make us, the artist and vendor feel at home. This is the second year for the show and my second time participating. Although it's a very small show, it packs a punch. Rocky, the show runner has been passionate about comics his whole life and it comes through in the show he puts on. The entrance fee in totally affordable, the artists and vendors are those you'll find at the bigger shows and it's convenient. You don't have to spend all day there and who doesn't want to spend a Saturday looking through comics?
Second, The Galaxy comic and fantasy art expo in Joliet IL. This took place Saturday September 21st. This show is run by Jody McQuarters and is held in Joliet's downtown museum. I've been doing this show for the past 4 years now and I have to say that hands down, this is one of the best one day shows of the year. It keeps getting better and better. The only thing is the foot traffic is not there and this show deserves better. It's four floors of Awesomeness! I know Jody does a good job getting the word out but the people have to show up. I would really hate to see this show go away, it's just too good.
Anyhoo, I gotta run. I'll probably come back to this post later to officially wrap it up.
