Kansas City will be hosting Central Comicon on August 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. They are still confirming many of their guests for this convention. It looks like a good time.
Central Comicon does have a limited number of FREE Artist Alley tables. If you are comic book creator and would like to attend this event, display and sell your work, and make new fans- all for free- check out their Artist Alley Page. I have several friends who are comic artists/creators and I thought of them when I saw this announcement.
I will post more details on the upcoming Central Comicon as they are released. You can also like them on the Central Comicon Facebook Page.
