Cape Comic Con in Cape Girardeau, MO is an event I look forward to every year. Not only do we get to hang out with our friends all weekend, but we get to meet other amazing people and make new friends. Not to mention the celebrity guests that make an appearance every year.
For those who may not know, Cape Comic Con features 3 days of professional comic book artists, publishers, cosplay, and over 130 tables of comics, art, toys, gaming merchandise, and more for fans of all genres to enjoy. Fans from all over the region come to celebrate with us.
This year we were joined by Butch Patrick who is best known for his role as Eddie Munster in The Munster's TV show. He brought with him two very iconic vehicles from the show as well - Dragula and Coach.
Other guests included Veronic Taylor (voice actor known for Pokemon, Sailor Moon, and TMNT); Marvel Comics Artist Greg Land; Actor David Fielding from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers; Actor Karan Ashley from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers; Actor Walter Jones from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers; and Professional Wrestler Road Warrior Animal (AWA • NWA • WWE • WCW.)
There were a lot of great authors and artist there as well - Nathan Bonner, Brian Rhodes, Brian K. Morris, Jason Nugent, Cathy Jackson, Kenny Sills... I'm sure I'm forgetting many.
But it was a fun time and I sold books, met cool people, and got to see some amazing cosplays. (See photos below.) I also heard there were was a record-breaking attendance this year, so that was great news! I appreciate all the effort organizer Ken Murphy and his volunteers put into making this event a success. It runs smooth and is always fun.
