2014-2017 Retrospective (Galleries, Reviews, and Sweet Interviews)
The Fantasticon is a mid-size show created for true comic book and pop culture collectors. The fans that come to our shows are true collectors that are looking for those rare items for their personal collections. Most leave very satisfied as we pride ourselves on having great dealers and artists at our shows. If you collect it, you will find it at a Fantasticon Show. We also are very proud of the fact that our admission price is the lowest of any of the other shows. And the cost for being an exhibitor or artist at the Fantasticon is far less than any other comic cons out there.
The 2019 Monroe Pop Fest ( formerly the Monroe Comic-Con ) will take place Saturday, September 14 (9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.) at the MB&T Expo Center.
The 7th Annual 1 day event will feature more than 70 creators, writers, illustrators and actors who will greet the fans, sign autographs, take pictures, and provide panels and Q & A discussions, while many super fans are dressed in their pop culture best. Additional costs may occur with some guests. A popular event is cosplay contest sponsored by Rob Miller Art where a mix of judges determine the best costume winners, presenting CASH prizes and gift packages.
Come see what we’re all about this September 14th at the 7th Annual Monroe Pop Fest !!
