Well, con season is in full swing. Last month my wife Nicki and I attended MidSouthCon in Memphis, TN, and are looking to continue our con-a-month schedule and will hit the road for a few more this summer.  

First up- the Memphis Comic Expo at the Agricenter, won’t be too long of a drive since it’s our new backyard con in Memphis. I set up at last year’s in the fall and had a great time.
