This year for Planet Comicon Kansas City, I’m taking a bit of a different approach. Usually I spend most of my time at cons walking the show floor, checking out all the many goodies and catching up with friends. That’s all well and good, of course, but I usually wind up kicking myself after because I missed out on great panel discussions. With this year’s Planet celebrity lineup, I’m not making that mistake!

This week I sat down with the show program to choose my show itinerary – so many great panels overlap in one way or another, I had to make some tough decisions. Read on to find out where you can find me – and why you definitely want to!

KC Geeks swag - buttons and stickers for geeks from KCGeeks.com


When I’m not at a panel, I’ll likely be on the show floor, drooling over goodies, and chatting with people. Also new for this year…GEEK SWAG!

I have a limited number of 1.25″ pins and 1″ stickers (pictured above) to hand out to those who ask. The key is finding me, so see below and come introduce yourself, whether at a panel or at a booth! I will have some sort of KC Geeks ware on each day, but this bag should be easiest to spot:

KC Geeks messenger bag and nametag - customized through ArtsCow.com

There is a catch. If I give you a button or sticker, you have to tell someone at the show about KCGeeks.com, and what a FANTASTIC resource it is for all things geeky in Kansas City. It’s not like you’ll be lying.

I will be live Tweeting where I am on the vendor floor and for how long, so be sure to watch Twitter for the heads up.
