It’s a special episode of my Wayne’s Comics Podcast, so I thought for #275 we’d go where this show has never gone before – to talk with the leader of a successful comics convention! I talk with Ben Penrod from Awesome Con about that high-octane event, including how it came to be, what goes on there, and what we might expect from them in the future. He even discusses how it got that name, and why he thinks it’s perfect for the years ahead! Comics conventions are a big part of the comics experience these days, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy what he has to say! For more about Awesome Con, including details about this year’s event, go to their website here, and for more about the other conventions Ben is part of, head to this link.
