SMASHCON 9 (18 Nov 2017)
Sanford, Florida
As most of you know today was local comic shop day (November 18, 2017) and it was also the 9th anniversary of Smash Comics and Games in Sanford Florida.  SmashCon 9 as it's actually known.

Among the events and festivities that happened was an appearance by newly inducted Hall of Famer George Perez.  Earlier this year, George had a heart attack and, for now, has had to stop doing conventions until his doctor has cleared him... but he was able to make an appearance today and signed autographs and posed for pictures.

He has lost some weight and joked about having to buy some new clothes because nothing fits him now.  He had a very good day and was glad he could come out and help support the store.
