This past weekend was Awesome Con, one of the newer cons to hit the con scene. Nestled in the nation’s capitol, the con is a welcome addition to anyone’s con tour. I went on Friday and I’m glad I did. Friday was preview night, with limited hours from 3-8pm. The con was not crowded, which is great if you just want to browse and not deal with a crowd. Panels were pretty limited on Friday which was kind of a bummer. But being able to talk to your favorite artist for an extended amount of time due to a lack of a crowd surely made up for it.
The dealer selection was good, but I would have liked to have seen more Golden Age dealers. Maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough, but I did notice the many dealers selling toys/shirts/other things. And that’s perfectly ok! There was something for everyone.
Overall I liked preview night. Maybe next year I’ll make a weekend of it.
