We are counting down the days when we can see our friends at Planet Comicon in Kansas City, but before that, we have another con to tell you about.
With the postponement of Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, originally scheduled for March 12-15, the comic community in the Pacific Northwest was left wondering what to do next? For many creators and vendors, they were counting on ECCC as a source of income. For fans, this was an event that they had been planning on attending for some time.
So the brilliant team at PDXComicsArts.com decided to put on a comic convention in Portland, hosted at different comic book stores around the city. Within hours of the ECCC announcement, PDX Pop Up Con was up and running.
We sat down with Indigo Kelleigh from PDXComicsArts.com and Katie Proctor with Books With Pictures to discuss what it takes to put together a city-wide con in just one week. While we cover a lot of content on the show, this is a fast-moving con, so please click the link above to get the most up-to-date info for the PDX Pop Up Con.
As a reminder, make plans to attend the Worst. Comic. Podcast. EVER! panel at Planet Comicon on March 20 at 7:30 PM. We will be in 2505A talking comics, playing games, and giving away great prizes.
