The 2017 convention season has begun since last weekend I attended my first con of the season. MSP ComiCon is run by volunteers which is pretty impressive. I always sit with the Twin Cities Geek table so I am considered an exhibitor at the convention. I have never paid to get into this con and I get free lunch that’s cooked by the volunteers for this con. This con is one of my favorites and I always meet new creators each time I attend. I made sure to bring cash with me and I wanted to show off the comics and books I purchased.
Kim & Kim #1 by Black Mask Studios
Kim & Kim details the story of two young women who hijack some bounties and get into trouble. This comic emphasizes powerful female relationships while taking place in this punk rock, sci-fi adventure.
Lake Lurkers by M.P. Johnson
Lake Lurkers is a horror novella about creatures living in Lake Harriet which is located in Minneapolis. I have been trying to read more horror and I like how this takes place in areas around Minneapolis. I can’t wait to read this.
Big in Japan by Timothy Price
What would happen if a rock star/band traveled to Japan to fight a Godzilla-like creature? Once I read this book, I’ll let you know how it turns out. My first impression of this book is imagining Led Zeppelin battling with the Kaiju from Pacific Rim. This seems like a cool premise for a book.
RoboCatz vs. Thunder Dogs by Justin Cermak
Robot dogs are destroying robot cats and vice versa in this epic comic. I am rooting for the robot cats of course.
H.E.N.C.H (Helping Evil Nefarious Criminals Hire) by James Person & Chad Freund
Supervillains usually always lose against the heroes, so how about trying to hire villains for other job positions. I’m doing a terrible job explaining this comic because it’s more interesting than how I’m describing it out to be. I am linking the H.E.N.C.H. Facebook page so you can learn more yourself.
That is everything I purchased from MSP ComiCon this year. I am actually slightly overwhelmed by all the comics I have yet to read, but I know I will get around to reading everything eventually.

Um, lucky!! I’d love to get into a con for free, very cool. Awesome haul! I’m still pretty new to comics and haven’t heard of most of these, but I’m definitely interested in a few of them. And I second Smudge as a crazy adorable cat name ❤️
A lot of the comics/books I purchased are native Minnesotan artists. However, you can find a lot of these comics by following the links that I posted. Especially Black Mask comics 😀
You got a seriously awesome haul 🙂
Thanks! 😀 It was pretty fun.
Awesome con! It looks like you had a great time! Robocats vs Thunder Dogs sounds like so much fun.
It does! I’ll have to write a review once I finish it!
Wow: that’s what I call a super haul! 😀
Haha I see what you did there 😉
