1988. Microsoft releases Windows 2.1. Bruce Wills becomes an action hero with the release of Die Hard. Bobby McFerrin tells everyone, "Don't Worry, Be Happy." And in the Twin Cities, a group of comic book fans decide to have a comic book convention.
It was a relatively small, local show. There weren't a lot of frills or 'extras.' Just comic dealers, comic creators, and comic fans. A stripped-down, old-school, four-on-the-floor, dual-overhead cam comic convention. And just like a quarter-mile run in a classic muscle car, it was fast, exciting, and a lot of FUN.
Enough fun that they decided to not just do it again, but to add a second show! And, contrary to every other major comic convention in the country, we still maintain two conventions every year.
