  • Friend of the store and a comic shop owner longer then even our beloved Greg, John Dudas of Carol and Johns Comic Book Shop in Cleveland had our guest of honor do a commissioned piece for his store. Bob Layton did a masterful job on this recreation of TOS 57. Please visit Mr. Layton's website if you would like to set up a commission to be done before the show. All you would have to do is pick it up at the show and not have to wait in line. Oh yeah, and pay for it too. ;) I cant get over how tremendous this piece is. WOW!!!!
  • What is the policy on props like small swords or daggers? Is it just gun type props that cannot be made out of plastic?

  • Thinking about taking my son to this. I've never been to something like this. Is the atmosphere kid friendly there? I know it may sound like a stupid question but like I said I've never been to a convention lol. Also what about ticket prices? Are they the same for everyone or is there a child discount for 3 and under?
