About This Convention
The Free State Comicon is an “old-fashioned” comic book convention, primarily focused on comic books, those who write, draw, and otherwise create comic books. The show is interested in fostering the many newer artists and writers who self-produce, self-publish, or create webcomics, and of course the rich body of talent that is the Kansas City comic book creator community. This will be the 8th year for this annual convention, which takes place in Lawrence, Kansas.

Press Release:

FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!

One of the most exciting new creator-owned books coming out this Summer is the Dark Horse original series, DREAM THIEF, which looks like it’s going to come out of nowhere, and turn a TON of heads.

This incredible blend of supernatural horror, and modern-day crime drama (ala THE WIRE, RESERVOIR DOGS, THE DEPARTED, etc.) grabbed a hold of us when we read it, and completely blew us away.

Right then and there, we told creators Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood: you’re coming to Third Eye to launch this gem proper.

What’s it about? After stealing an Aborginal mask from a museum, John Lincoln realizes that the spirits of the vengeful dead are possessing his body and mind while he sleeps! His old problems have been replaced by bloody hands and a trail of dead bodies — and now, remembering where he slept the night before is more important than ever.

This gritty, fast-paced drama is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we’d love to have you join us on Saturday May 18th when we have Jai and Greg to the shop to launch the book!
