All Star Comic Con

All Star Comic con was held June 15, 16, and 17th, and it was a real blast. It was held in a Sheraton in Tyson’s Corner – which is a suburb of Washington D.C. Here is a random fan doing a non-Urban Fantasy costume. There were a ton of super heroes, and Deadpool. Not a lot of Urban Fantasy literature that wasn’t super hero based. (I guess, not surprising given the ‘comic con’ label.)

Supernatural was also very big, with a visit from a demon.

And, if you haven’t been to a Party Wizard party, it has a kicking dance party on Saturday night. Still, I was a bit disappointed by the selection of authors available. There were a few authors, and I purchased a few books to read, but none of them were Urban Fantasy.

In any case, I recommend All Star Comic Con if you are local to the DC area. It probably isn’t worth traveling, for the small crowd, but the cost is low and the fun is high.


About the author

Hawkings Austin

I'm a new fantasy author, but I've been reading since Ogg finished with the paint and went to play with his wheel-thingy. I'm a professional nuclear engineer, rocket scientist, and survivalist. I am a semi-pro historian as well, with some published work in both science and history. I play with fire, shoot guns, swing swords, and run with scissors.
