Thanks to all for another great minICON !!!

BIG THANK YOU TO ALL WITH ISSUES: Well we put another minICON in the books and it was a big success. Our numbers went up by around 100 fans! This one broke last year’s attendance as now the biggest minICON ever! A big “THANK YOU” to all who attended, who put on a costume, who brought the comics and merchandise to sell, who spent money at the vendor spots, who drew for the fans, the list goes on and on. With the rise in numbers for this show I can only believe that Comic Book I-CON will be bigger in numbers too! Have a good Sunday All.

Check out the photo album from Reality Reimagined on their Facebook page.
