Looking to nerd out near Fort Leonard Wood this summer? Extremicon 2018 at the St. Robert Community Center is the place to see and be seen at the beginning of June!
Extremicon, Pulaski County, Missouri’s only comic convention, is in it’s second year- and growing!
We recently sat down with event organizer Gary Rogers to learn the top five reasons you should not miss this Extremicon.
(SPOILER– the list couldn’t be narrowed down to only five reasons!)
