Coming off the huge success of last year’s Inaugural event, this year’s Pop Con is poised to become the most fan friendly convention in the Midwest. Carroll Spinney (Bird Bird), Jim Steranko (Legendary Comic Artist), and scores of actors, artists, and unique vendors helped us launch last year’s first annual event.
This year, Sam Jones (Flash Gordon), Pete Rose (All Time Hit King), John Schneider (Dukes of Hazard), Burt Ward (Robin), Lee Meriwether (Catwoman), Danny Seagren (Electric Company Spiderman), Jackson Bostwick (Captain Marvel), and Lydia Green (Ewok Empire Strikes Back) are our featured celebrity guests. Legendary artist Mike Grell and Arvell Jones will be on hand to create original art for their fans, sign autographs, and curate a collection of original art done for the MEARS Pop Culture Gallery which specialized on 1960/70s Super Heroes. Lilith Lovecraft & Dr. Destruction will be our horror host MC’s.
Times, autograph prices, and photo op information will soon be posted on the website.

When asked about Pop Con 2017, founder Troy R. Kinunen replied “I am looking forward to witnessing the positive interaction of our growing fan base with the diverse personality and achievements of the celebrities in attendance and sharing the overall experience with the quality vendors which will be exhibiting their goods. Pop Con has created an intimate setting where collectors, dealers, and celebrities can meet. This is a throwback concept which embraces the “Good Ole Days” of collecting before the age of the internet. ”
