Pop Culture / Comic Book Shows - this weekend and beyond

Comic Books
Of all the comic book-related television shows that I follow, I'm most excited about Constantine. I know the source material very well, having own nearly all the 300 issues run of Hellblazer comic book. .…

Though winter’s cold bite is upon us early, there are still a few pop culture-related events, worth getting out of the house for.

Sound+Vision MN is a Pop Culture Collectibles show in its third year that brings together selections of vintage and current, rare and hard-to-find music (Vinyl, CDs, concert DVDs), comic books, toys, science fiction, horror and fantasy memorabilia and more, to a 3x annual show held at Valley Creek Mall in Woodbury.

Appearing November 22: Otis Frampton
For the latest installment, happening this Saturday, November 22 (9am-3pm), the show features Image Comics writer/artist Otis Frampton as its special guest and a chance to win early The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies advance screening tickets and prizes.

Frampton’s latest comic, an all-ages book called Oddly Normal, has its third issue out the following Wednesday, and he’s also involved in the YouTube popular How It Should Have Ended animated shorts, along with his own ABCDEFGeek.   Other promotions are on-site and the admission and parking are Free, for this one-of-a-kind east metro show.

Wizard World Madison
If it’s this cold and snowy out in November, will people go to a comic-con in early February? That’s the hope, as Wizard World expands its nationwide pop culture shows for 2015, adding a show in Madison, WI at the Alliant Energy Center on Feb 6-8, 2015.

Wizard began extending its reach last year, with the inaugural Wizard World Minneapolis and the company hopes for similar success across the border. Media guests announced so far include William Shatner, Eliza Dushku, George Wendt, Michael Rooker, Edward James Olmos, Billy Dee Williams, and Batman's Adam West and Burt Ward (perfect to get that long awaited TV series box autographed!).

Comic book creators include Mike Grell, writer Gary Carlson, and up-and- coming Marvel Young Gun artist, Valerio Schiti. Cosplay contests, celebrity Q+A sessions, and industry panels are all part of the weekend.

MSP Comicon
Locally, the longtime two-day SpringCon has rebranded itself as the MSP Comicon, likely in response for Wizard coming to town and to take advantage of the “Comicon” branding term. The 27th annual show will be held May 16-17 in the Grandstand at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds and features 100,000 square feet of comic book-centric collectibles.

Known as a fan and creator friendly show, the organizing volunteers suffered a heavy loss when Source Comics and Games co-owner Nick Post unexpectedly passed away, but the Midwest Comic Book Association carries on in his honor, to deliver a show that is both fun and satisfying to the comic book aficionado.

The Flash: A Celebration of 75 Years coming in January 2015

THE FLASH: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS (Hardcover) (20 Jan 2015)
DC Comics
The Flash: A Celebration of 75 Years Hardcover – January 20, 2015
by Gardner Fox (Author), Geoff Johns (Author), Carmine Infantino (Illustrator)


Introduced in 1940, The Flash burst onto the comic book scene with an explosive debut akin to his super-speed powers. He was an instant smash-hit success, as the lightning bolt insignia upon his chest became synonymous with the term "superhero". Even as seven decades have passed, The Flash is still a vibrant part of the DC Comics lore and an integral part of the genre.

THE FLASH: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS collects a wide range of stories featuring the Scarlet Speedster, ranging his seven decades as a mainstay in the DC Comics universe. From the original Flash, Jay Garrick, to his successors Barry Allen and Wally West, the mantle of this beloved hero has made him burst beyond the printed page into a pop culture symbol. This anthology graphic novel collects stories from the industry's legendary talents, including Gardner Fox, John Broome and Geoff Johns.
