There was a con about 10 miles from me last month. Who knew?

I just stumbled across Con on the Cob” which apparently was a convention (gaming, comics, anime, and other dorkery) held last month. I know I’m out of the loop but I’m a little bummed I didn’t know about it. Sandra Garrity and several miniatures sculptors I’ve never heard of were there. Shucks.

The graphic design of the web site is very nice. Check out the organizer’s web site (Andy Hopp). He is an illustrator of some talent, doing some very nice weird fantasy stuff. I’ve heard of his book Where the deep ones are (a spoof of Sendak’s classic Where the wild things are mashed up with HPL’s Innsmouth), but I did not know he was in Ohio. Come to think of it he looks a lot like a guy knew at Kent State in the animal rights club in the later 1990s but who knows, much of my time at Kent State is a blur.

So now I am aware of at least two very nearby gaming conventions I have never made it to (Andcon/Another Game Con being the other).

  1. That Andy Hopp dude’s Low Life, a Savage Worlds book, is all sorts of awesome.
