The 2011 Free State Comicon was held on Saturday, September 10th. This is our second recap and report on the show.
One of the highlights for the other comics creators at the show was the appearance of long-time comics artist Kevin Nowlan. Nowlan, who lives in south central Kansas, has been a fan favorite since his work on Marvel’s Moon Knight in the early 80’s, and his fan base includes many of the artists and writers in the area. Over the years, Nowlan has drawn dozens of comics stories and illustrated hundreds of covers. His most recent sequential work was in the one-shot Hellboy: Buster Oakley Gets His Wish.
Event promoter Craig Klotz has announced that artist Kyle Strahm will be the special guest at KC FanCon #27 on Sunday, September 26. The event hours are 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, and it is held at the Plaza Hotel at I-435 and Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park, Kansas.
