A small but terrific show featuring a variety of pulp and pulp related items. 25 dealers’ tables crammed with vintage pulp, pulp reprints, vintage paperbacks and posters as well as other ephemera. Plus a half-hour pulp magazine cover slide show. A great time for both serious pulp collectors as well as the casually interested. Lots of great stuff to see!

MSP Comicon

May 20th-21st 2017

Saint Paul, MN 55109

The MSP Comicon (formerly known as SpringCon), is one of the Midwest’s largest celebrations of comic book culture, it is a unique regional nexus of graphic literature and the wildly diverse communities that fuel it, produce it, and and ultimately consume it. Given the fact that the Midwest has a long standing and somewhat inexplicable reputation of producing a disproportionate number of working comic book & graphic literature professionals, including comic book writers, artists, inkers, etc., as well as being a breeder reactor for new and independent talent, it’s no wonder that FallCon has become one of the leading comic book conventions nationwide amongst the creative community, dealers and especially amongst the fans.
