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 email@example.com

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.
First called Books by the Bay in 1984, the two-day street fair has evolved into the largest and finest book fair in America.

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.
