Fandomfest Metropolis Supercon 2011

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Fandomfest Metropolis Supercon held in Metropolis, IL. IMHO one of the best places to hold a convention. I had visited the "Official Home of DC's Superman" a few years ago and enjoyed the stature and Super Museum, and the place has just gotten better! They now have a beautiful bronze statue celebrating the "First Lady of Metropolis," Noel Neill and an Americana Museum, which will overwhelm you with over 200,000 items of memorabilia. I visited Harrah's Casino and placed my first bet ever which I won. I was not so lucky on my subsequent bets! The convention itself was a small but fun event. I met some cool people, found some cheap back issues, and sold some books! Thank Mark, Ken, and the Fandomfest folks, the city of Metropolis, and my good friend Bobby Nash for a "super" weekend! I hope to return sometime, perhaps for the Superman Celebration!

It was a really enjoyable weekend, and I also was excited that you and I discovered the power of Myra's Magic Hot Dogs. We could be millionaires if we stock up on them before every show! LOL

Hope to see you again soon!

It was great to meet you as well, Stephen! I'd love to have a batch of Myra's Hot Dogs for every show, but she would probably charge more for them. :)

Had a great trip, Mike (and Stephen). Metropolis was incredible. I'm looking forward to a return visit.
