About This Convention
The Fantasticon is a mid-size show created for true comic book and pop culture collectors. The fans that come to our shows are true collectors that are looking for those rare items for their personal collections. We pride ourselves on having great dealers and artists at all of our shows. If you collect it, you will find it at a Fantasticon Show. We are also very proud of the fact that our admission price is the lowest of any of the other shows, and the cost for being an exhibitor or artist at the Fantasticon is far less than any other comic cons out there. Fantasticon is continuing to grow – look out for a show near you!

OH – Gumption Signing

gumption

Nick Offerman appears at Joseph-Beth Booksellers to discuss and sign his new book Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers on Sunday, May 31, 2015 at 4:00 pm!

From George Washington to Willie Nelson, Offerman describes twenty-one heroic figures and why they inspire in him such great meaning. He’ll combine both serious history with light-hearted humor – comparing, say, George Washington’s wooden teeth to his own experience as a woodworker. The subject matter will also allow Offerman to expound upon his favorite topics, which readers love to hear – areas such as religion, politics, woodworking and handcrafting, agriculture, creativity, philosophy, fashion, and, of course, meat.

Ticket includes a copy of Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers By Nick Offerman and a line ticket for the book signing. You will receive your copy of the book and line ticket when you arrive the afternoon of the event. Books and line tickets may not be picked up prior to the event. There will be no signed memorabilia.
