This past weekend, I was honored to be an invited guest at my very first Rob-Con! This is the Tri-Cities Largest Comic Book Convention and featured many guests, comics, toys, costumes, games and more! The Tri-Cities region is comprised of the cities of Kingsport, Johnson City, and Bristol and the surrounding smaller towns and communities in Northeast Tennessee. Here are a few photos from the fantastic event:
R2D2 enjoyed my latest Snuffy Smith comic strip book collection, Balls Of Fire! More Snuffy Smith Comics!
Robert Pilk, owner of Mountain Empire Comics in Bristol, and organizer of Rob-Con.
Wow! The costumes were pretty elaborate at Rob-Con!

A Snuffy Smith fan shows me a Snuffy Smith Sunday comic strip he saved since 1966! Fans of the Snuffy Smith comic strip are such wonderful people! I really enjoy doing these types of events where I am able to get to meet so many of them!
