Indy PopCon 2019

It has been a while, but we are back with an all new Prose and Cons!  I know I mentioned that I would share a story about a past convention that I attended, but alas, time got the better of me and I will have to share that story at a later time.  This week we will be talking about a convention that is a perennial fan favorite–Indy PopCon!  This was our first time attending and it was a wonderful experience.  As always, the following description is true about the iteration of the convention I attended in 2019 and may change over time!

Wizard World Cleveland part 2

In the previous installment I went over the basics of what Wizard World Cleveland was and what it offered.  In this entry, I want to illuminate more what the experience was like. Most of this is tied to the convention itself, but some is tied to its location and the accommodations.

In our first bonus episode we bring you part 1 of our Wizard World Cleveland coverage!  Contained within are interviews with John Glover, Thomas Nicholas and a special ‘behind the scenes’ insight from Jerry Milani.

Wizard World Cleveland part 1

Our first entry in this blog dealt with a slightly smaller convention.  For those feeling the need for something a little bit larger, you might consider sinking your teeth into Wizard World Cleveland!  It is important to note that the description herein is only for the Cleveland event as Wizard World has several events in different cities.  Also, this is for 2019 only.  Conventions change over time, so what is true this year may not be true the next, but I am sure you all already knew that!

NWI Comiccon Part 2
