The Daytona Beach Comic Con was a perfect coming together of a great promoter, a cool crowd and awesome fellow guests. It was a super show that really represents what comic cons used to be about - comics, comic art and collectibles. We hope to attend more shows like this in the future.  We want to thank Tom Raupp for being such a great host.

We were thrilled to be invited to the Orlando Toy & Comic Con - Summer Fan Event. Not only did it mean attending a great convention, it also meant that we got to reunite with Sugar Boogarz writer/artist/creator Michael "LocoDuck" Duron. We also were seated next to the one and only Tony Daniel, an amazing artist as well as an all around nice guy. This was a perfect one day comic con that focused on comics new & old as well as a crazy amount of toys. We hope never to miss another one of these great shows.

January 9th, 2018 -  West Palm Beach, FL

The Superheroes of Cubicon 

This year's Fandom Fest was held under a cloud of controversy. From a mass exodus of guests canceling days before the show to not providing refunds to a last minute switch of venues (resulting in the con being held in an abandoned Macy's), there was plenty to be concerned about. However we were committed and came anyway ... though it was "odd" we were not disappointed. The folks we met were all great, we made some new fans and some great connections and that's priceless. We also used this opportunity to reach out to new comic shops and to explore a bit of Louisville. It was a unique experience that we will not soon forget.

Fan2Sea was an all encompassing comic con experience aboard an incredible cruise ship - Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas. Guests included Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, David Harbour, Catherine Dyer, Randy Havens and Shannon Purser from Stranger Things, Michael Rooker & Sean Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy, Sonequa Martin-Green, Seth Gilliam, Madison Lintz and Lew Temple from The Walking Dead. Also in attendance were some of the biggest names in comics including Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Klaus Janson, Andy Kubert, Arthur Adams, Mark Brooks, Phil Noto and Charles Soule … just to name a few. It was an incredible experience and one that we highly recommend checking out once next year's dates are announced.

The 2017 Soda City Comic Con was one of the BEST shows we have ever been guests at. The promoters were some of the nicest we have ever had the privilege of working with, so generous, really the model that others should look to for inspiration. But beyond that the attendees were so nice and were really interested in what we had to offer. Also the city was simply amazing everything was so beautiful and everyone was so friendly, plus some of the BEST food we have ever had on the road. If given the opportunity we would love to return for 2018!

Cosmic Times and publisher Martin T Pierro along with Heidi Hess attended the Mighty Melbourne Toy & Comic Con! it was great a opportunity for us to connect with some old friends wile making new ones. The surprise hit of the show was an old book back from the early days of Cosmic Times, Arthur: The Legend Continues … perhaps it's time to revisit that series. We want to thank Tom Raupp and Mike Pries for being so generous to us.

The 2017 Infinity Con was in a word … FUN! 
The crew behind this show really put together a well run event that is fun for everyone in front of and behind the table, everyone has a good time at Infinity Con! We met so many great folks from all corners of the fandom including some not as well represented at other “bigger” shows. Infinity Con draws an eclectic crowd and they do so by having a very diverse guest list. We were also thrilled to be placed next to our partners from Inverse Press, seeing those guys is always a plus. All in all Infinity Con is a small show that is growing and with such a great team behind the scenes it’s clear to see why.

Cosmic Times attended The Superheroes of Cubicon - Cuboree 2017!

This awesome Boy/Cub Scout event was held at Camp Elmore and we had so much fun interacting with the Scouts and their parents. For this event we created an activity where the boys (and girls) could create their own superhero. We were happily surprised at how much fun it was for them … and also for us. 

In the South (and Central) Florida area Cosmic Times has created a program for Scouts that meets all of the requirements for the Artist Merit Badge or Belt Loop. We can be booked for your next pack or troop meeting today. For more information contact Heidi at hhess82@gmail.com
