Cape Comic Con

Cape Comic Con

Cape Comic Con will celebrate 15 years in the community next April. This year, they expanded the operation by adding an inaugural anime event and another, horror-themed convention. 

The latter, titled “Fear Con,” took place just two weekends ago, with nearly 400 costumed attendees filtering through the Osage Center. 

Con director Ken Murphy says such large attendance at previous events has allowed him to branch off into these single-genre conventions and, by watching calendars and landscapes, says we have a strong local interest.

Cape Girardeau will be expecting its annual flood of superheroes, space rangers, and comic book fans alike.

 

That’s just the cosplayers who will be attending Cape Comic Con this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the Osage Center.

 

Cape Comic Con director Ken Murphy says the convention is in its 14th year, and the numbers have only grown - from 400 attendees in its first year to 4900 in 2018.
