We are just days away from the inaugural Kansas City Comic Con. Now we know that the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! will be there. The bigger question remains, will YOU be there?
The convention begins on Friday, August 7, running through Sunday, August 9. Show hours are 1-7 PM on Friday, 10 AM to 7 PM on Saturday; and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. The show will be at Bartle Hall in downtown Kansas City.
We will have a table at the convention. You can find at least one of us most of the time at booth #412. We are going to be out on the floor as well, trying to get some more interviews with many of the guests. Now, there will be at least two times on Saturday (see below) where we will not be at our table. We are looking for volunteers, if anyone would like to cover our table during our panels. Please reply to us and let us know if you are available to help.
Did you catch the word ‘panels‘ in that last paragraph? Yes, we will be hosting a variety of panels during the convention. The panels that have been announced (so far) include:
- FRIDAY, 3:00 PM – CERINA VINCENT – ROOM ONE: Actress Cerina Vincent discusses her career in film and television. Moderated by John of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!
- FRIDAY, 5:00 PM – BUTCH PATRICK – ROOM ONE: Actor Butch Patrick discusses his history with The Munsters and other classic television shows. Moderated by John of the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!

Check back on this post throughout the week, as we may have more panels to add to our list. We’re still working to line up a panel for Cullen to host!
As busy as we are going to be this weekend, we still have a lot of work to do this week:
- On Monday, look for a 60 Second Review from Cullen. When you watch the video, take a minute to subscribe to the WCPE channel on YouTube.
- On Tuesday, John will be giving us his picks for Four Comics I Want. As always, this list is sponsored by Elite Comics in Overland Park, KS. Stop by the Elite booth at KCCC this weekend for free bubblegum, as well as some incredible deals.
- On Wednesday, John has a secret assignment in the works. Is a comic? A video? Vacation pictures from his trip to Colorado? Find out on Wednesday! To be promptly notified when the post goes live, make sure you have LIKE’d our Facebook page and/or subscribed to our Twitter feed.
- On Thursday, Jerry will be looking at the early days of Marvel with Essential Fantastic Four Vol. 1 for the Throwback Thursday feature. If you haven’t done so already, go like Jerry’s Essential Showcase site or Facebook page.
- On Friday, before the show starts, look for a new podcast episode from us. We’ll discuss Star Wars #7 and some other recent releases; get some vacation updates from the guys; and talk about the upcoming con. As always, our show is sponsored by Clint’s Comics in Kansas City, MO. Clint’s will have a table there at the show, but do yourself a favor. Take a break from the con Friday or Saturday, and head three miles south to visit Clint’s at 3941 Main St.
We are the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER!, and we hope you enjoy the show.
