The seventh annual Free State Comicon will be held this Saturday, September 8th, 2012, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm in Lawrence, Kansas.  It will be held in Building #21 of the Douglas County Fairgrounds at 2110 Harper Street where it was located in previous years.  Admission is $5.00.

The event created by KC Fancon who used to have the catchy slogan “Get your Freak-on at the Free-con” is well worth the five bucks admission and is a fun event focusing on the Kansas City area comic book scene.  Featured creators at this year’s show include penciler/inker/writer Ande Parks (Green Arrow, Antman, Capote in Kansas, Union Station, El Diablo, Kato, Lone Ranger), writer Jai Nitz (Kato, Silver Star, El Diablo, Tron: Betrayal, Blue Beetle), penciler/writer Steve Lightle (Classic X-Men, Legion of Superheroes, The Flash), and writer Seth Peck (Fear Itself: Wolverine, ’76).  Get sketches of your favorite characters from artist Damont Jordan, and chat about and purchase copies of the newest Star Trek novels from Kevin Dilmore and Dayton Ward.

The sixth annual 2011 Free State Comicon will be held this Saturday, September 10th from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm in Lawrence, Kansas. It will be held in Building #21 of the Douglas County Fairgrounds at 2110 Harper Street in Lawrence, Kansas. Admission is $3.00.

This is the first year the event created by KC Fancon has lost the catchy “Get your Freak-on at the Free-con” since they are now charging admission, but it’s worth the three bucks admission and qualifies as a good midwest event, focusing on the Kansas City area comic book scene.  Headliners at this year’s show include Eisner Award winning penciler/inker Kevin Nowlan (Doctor Strange, Moon Knight, Superman vs. Aliens), penciler/inker/writer Ande Parks (Green Arrow, Antman, Capote in Kansas, Union Station, El Diablo, Kato), writer Jai Nitz (Kato, El Diablo, Tron: Betrayal, Blue Beetle), penciler/writer Steve Lightle (Classic X-Men, Legion of Superheroes, The Flash), and writer Seth Peck (Fear Itself: Wolverine, ’76).

The Freecon is always a fun, casual show, with several comic book and toy vendors, and the opportunity to get some affordable original comic sketches from the several artists at the show.  It’s a good opportunity to chat with some writers and artists with several nationally published comic book works.

Here is the poster for the event with more guests scheduled to appear:
