A Star Is Born

Star Con 2011 is coming to Springfield Ohio Saturday October 15th. And will be taking place at Main Street Comics And Games , 2125 E.Main Street.

What is Star Con? Well….that’s a very snazzy way of saying Twilight Star Studio’s 2nd year anniversary. Last year we celebrated our first year anniversary at Super Fly Comics And Games in Yellow Springs Ohio and had a blast with some of our closest friends  and fans!

A list of some of the special guests hanging out with us last year included R2-D2, Dr. Strange, Death, and Dave Chapelle…..no lie.

We had some great friends hanging out with us all day as well including Dustin Carson, Victor Dandridge, and the guys from Studio Akumakaze. One of the highlights of the afternoon which featured Hero Clix tournaments and a filming of “Geek Street” (the fan favorite video show featuring myself and co-host Frank Raynor seen on The Underground Video Network-NEW HOME OF RAYNMAN: THE ULTIMATE PODCAST)…was the fact that Kevin Adkins joined the studio that evening.

The event was covered by the local paper , Comic Related and U.V.N.

What a great day for Springfield Ohio’s only comic producing studio. the studio that never sleeps….Twilight Star!!!!

Believe it or not a whole year has passed since that event and plans are under way for the 2nd year anniversary celebration and the question that keeps popping up is …how in the Hell do we top what we did last year? Well the first step is to have the event in our home town of Springfield. We love Super Fly Comics And Games and they have always been very supportive of everything that we do but we can’t deny the fact that every event we hold on our home ‘Field has been an overwhelming success as the people of Champion City come out to support us in droves.

As a matter of fact the three most successful events to date that the studio was a part of have been Champion City Comic Con 2011, Champion City Comic Con 2010, and Free Comic Book Day at Main Street Comics And Games in that order….all taking place right here in our own home town. So it made sense to have this year’s celebration at Main Street Comics And Games and Scott Riley’s incredible new store front. The shop where Twilight Star comics are available all year long at their own section of the store!!!

If you happened to be at the store this past Free Comic Book Day you’ll remember the store hosted several indie creators…not only Twilight Star but Dave Arhar, Dustin Carson, Chad Lambert, and Studio Akumakaze. It had the feel of a small convention. Actually the first year celebration at Super-Fly felt that way as well.

And very recently while attending this year’s Champion City Disc Golf Tournament co-founder of the studio Gary Church and I were kidding around about making this 2nd year celebration a “real” convention….fellow studio member Tim Hagans joined the the discussion and the name Star Con popped up. A play on Twilight Star.

Needless to say……we liked it!

We had already made plans to set up the tables at the shop Oct. 15t much like we had on Free Comic Book Day. You see Twilight Star has several different members and this is the one event that promises to allow each creator involved with the studio to have their own table space for the whole day. We usually have to take turns and break the table time down into “shifts” when we appear at shows due to the size of the studio. Not this time. Each member will have a table to spotlight the various projects they are working on for Twilight Star.

Each member will be given an opportunity to be interviewed by U.V.N. who will be there covering the celebration.

In two years….Hell Yeah!

It will be Halloween Season so feel free to come in costume. There will be Heroclix games hosted by Frank Raynor and Kevin Adkins featuring custom made Twilight Star Heroclix created by Kevin.

Bill will be hosting Marvel trivia games.

New comics, new art prints, new t-shirts. trading cards…and possibly even a live musical guest!!!

And (rumor has it) even the recording of the much anticipated Geek Street #4 for U.V.N. who will be at the shop with us all day.

Sounds like a convention to me!
