Rate the Con

Our new thing for 2024 is to ask our readers to take a poll on some basic components of the con. We want to know how you rate the parking, the vendors and the food. The poll closes after 30 days and we will use this as a baseline for next years convention. We plan to keep a rating system set up for many of the conventions.

How Was the Food?
(Availability, Cost and Variety in the area)

How Were the Vendors?
(Variety and Quality)

How Was the Parking?
(Availability, Ease, and Cost)

We realize that these don’t apply to all conventions, so if they don’t apply to your con, give them a 5 star.

**Later additions to the rating systems will include things such as guests and ticket prices**


What got my attention (besides the usual cosplay) was the NASA exhibit. It featured immersive experiences with the Extravehicular Activity and Human Surface Mobility Program; Exploration Architecture, Integration, and Science Directorate; Human Health and Performance Directorate; and STEM engagement programs. Fans also got to meet and take photos with NASA astronaut Marcos Berríos.

While everything mentioned above may be attractive to our readers and make the event more fun, what truly attracts many of us to Comicpalooza is the cosplay. This gives everyone their own chance to show their love for a genre, showcase their skills, and show their enjoyment. Thanks to John-Daniel Balusek Ryan we get to see some of the fantastic cosplay that was on site.
