It's here, slithering out of its dank den and rising back up with a vengeance: Here There Be Monsters Con! This year we are bringing you our new event, Kai-Drew #1 Fight Time featuring artists Nick Pitarra (Red Wing, Manhattan Projects) and Matt Frank (Godzilla); a Sideshow Freak-Out Extravaganza; a dystopian master session with R.D. Lanier, where you will get to see YOUR story turned into a web comic; a delicious Bug Fest where you will learn how to turn backyard pests into delicious party hor d'ourves; a session of Testify, Austin's own tell-all story group; and our new From Out of the Dark horror film fest will be presenting the semi-finalists and finalists from this year. Apart from our regular programming, there will be a Magic: The Gathering tournament, with prizes from Outlaw Moon; game demos such as Golem Arcana (SOOOO COOL!!!), dozens of game, toy, comic, and craft vendors, plus food and a full bar. So come early, and stay for the day!

And if you're like us, you have a LOT of games. If you need to make some room or get a little money for that new game, grab a spot in our Troll Market. These are outdoor booths located under the Shoal Crossings giant shady oak trees priced at only $25 so that gamers and collectors like you can get in on the action. Speaking of, if any of you are game designers, comic artists, authors, alchemists, black hole managing teams, etc. and you want to demo or rent a booth, feel free to email us at [masked] . We'd love to hear from you!
