This year’s raffle for a chance to play Space Cadets with Wil Wheaton was a rousing success, collecting over $1200 for Hero Initiative!
Many thanks to all the participants, and special shout-outs to the following individuals and groups:
Kantcon (If you haven’t already purchased your tickets for the show coming up in July, then get on it.)
Additional photos of the event (courtesy of Jon Hook) can be found here, and if you’re in search of even more gaming fun, try out an original Cthulhu-based adventure created by Jon Hook himself.
You can purchase Age of Cthulhu: The Timeless Sands of India here.
On behalf of Planet Comicon, I’d like to say that we’re both shocked and saddened by this announcement. Though I didn’t personally get the opportunity to meet Mr. LeParmentier during the show, I’ve seen several photographs where he appeared to be in good spirits and game for a bit of Star Wars role play. Our condolences go out to his family, and I’m sure he will be in the thoughts of all those who met him in Kansas City.
May the Force be with him.
They’ve teamed up with Dave Dorman, BigBadToyStore, Sideshow Collectibles, Joe Corroney, Gentle Giant, Kotobukiya, Brian’s Toys, and many others to create a prize package that is fully armed and operational for Planet Comicon Star Wars fans!
They will also have product from the DaGeDar Star Wars collection on display, as well as many other surprises at their booth. Be sure to stop by make your donation.
On Wednesday, April 3rd, representatives from Planet Comicon will be creating a mobile convention at Children’s Mercy Hospital.
Unfortunately, children suffering from illness will be unable to attend our show, but Supergirl Jessica Meditz-Porter, along with artists Darryl Woods and Damont Jordan and Elite Comics owner, William Binderup, will be doing their best to remedy the situation by bringing the show to them. Laden with free comic books, the PC crew will be taking photographs with the kids and offering up free sketches of their favorite characters.
In addition, there will be complimentary tickets to the show offered to parents of children capable of attending the convention, including those at Ronald McDonald House.
If you would like to help, donations will be accepted at the Planet Comicon contest booth on both Saturday and Sunday. Suggested items include coloring books, comics, crayons, markers, and/or action figures.
Be a hero and help a child in need.

Wondering where the big after party will be on Saturday night following Planet Comicon?
Remember the Alamo! As in Alamo Drafthouse.
Alamo will be offering up food and drink specials to any attendee wearing a wristband or lanyard on Saturday night after close of show. Within walking distance of Bartle Hall, it’s a great place to hang out and converse with old friends or new ones you met at the con.
Lest we forget, Alamo is also Kansas City’s coolest moviegoing experience, so you can catch a flick to cap off your night. Or begin it, depending on how wild your weekend’s going to be.
For all you fans out there, Alamo will be giving away posters from Mondo.
