Buckeye Comic Con like days of old



I just returned home from Buckeye Comic Con. It's a small show in a hotel. Just like back in the 70's when I attended my first cons.  I like it because it is dealers loaded with comics. There are some small press writers and artists in attendance.

 They say the attendance is 400 for the one day event and that looked a little low to me. Very busy. It is held every four months and I plan on being there in November for the next one. I picked up some high grade Swamp Thing , pristine Spawn 1to 7 ( $40 bucks for those).Wolverine 10 and a Spawn 9. The Thor 134 looked to be a 3.5 but it was cheap and finally a Spiderman 129 CGC 8.0. It wasn't cheap but a decent price.   I stopped going to Mid- Ohio Con a couple of years after it became a Wizard World. I would rather spend $4 to check out 20 dealers in a hotel than $50 to shop a few in a convention center. All and all quite pleased with this show.

P.S , I did find a short 1:38 video Buckeye Comicon July 2019 on YouTube from the con someone posted. I made it in it at the :27 to :31 mark. Back turned , white shirt , green backpack. Finally on YouTube after all these years.

Did you go to the Columbus cons in the 70s? I attended most of them, often selling off my collection.

The only con I remember going to way back then in Columbus was at the Lincoln Levque tower. Not sure what it was called though. Only was there one time.

I think they were just called Columbus Comic-Cons. I remember them mostly being in a banquet room downtown, but had forgotten where exactly. As I recall they were put on two or three times a year by a local used book dealer Roy Willis and a part-time dealer Gordon Odwarka, both who passed away only two weeks apart in 2008.
