THE COMIC GRIND BRINGING COMICS AND COFFEE TO YOU! I've always dreamed about owning my own comic book store. My mother, who has owned several businesses in the past recently retired. She was looking for her next business endeavor. So, we came together and created The Comic Grind. A mobile comic book store, coffee and more. This is our first year and we are very excited to bring our business to you. I started collecting comics in 1989. I have Silver Age, Bronze Age and Current.
- Phil Trapp, Co-Owner of Comic Grind
Hotavio Escamilla and Aaron Wright started by drawing comics in spiral notebooks in 6th grade. Many years later, they took it up again by self-publishing books. In order to get their books exposure, Hotavio (Tav) started vending shows last year not only pushing self-published comics, but selling what he loves most, all types of comics and other related merchandise.
An Old-School Mix. A Variety of Silver and Bronze-Age Books. Cool stuff you don’t see everyday are the kind of Comics I read, collect and sell. I also buy old comics, and look forward to meeting all of you at this Wonderful Event. Stop by my booth at BIG RIVER COMIC CON and find some neat old comics you didn’t even know you were looking for… This is gonna be Great!
Jennifer Moore taught herself how to hand sew when she was younger and loved it. Her husband bought her a small sewing machine a few years ago hoping she would make crazy items. It took a short while for her to be braver than the machine and try it out. Turns out that is when her obsession with fabrics/crafts started. YouTube was a giant help on learning how to perfect her craft and it was/is a good visual aid. The sewing addiction that has been creeping up on her for years has finally dominated my life.
So, she wanted to share what she loves to do with the world!!
MooreNerdy can be found in six different counties, the Neutral Zone in Chesterfield Mall, and each of the Fantasy Shop locations (four in total).
You can call him, "Alex The Comic Hoarder"...we call him a local Youtube Sensation who will be at#BRCC2019
In September 2016, he started a YouTube Channel dedicated to comic book related content. He Buys/Sells/Trades comic books and collections.
Cretaceous Productions is comprised of Stevie, an artist who creates artwork for the two web-series, Life with Raptor and Fur Real Rescues, and her husband Brad, who writes scripts for both series.
Stevie creates all kinds of artwork, some original works and fandom based, but she also creates cute plush toys (particularly tiny dinosaurs!) and crocheted hats, scarves, and so much more!
Dan Long has been collecting comic books for almost 40 years, at one time having amassed more than 10,000 comic books in his personal collection.
He went looking for letters to decorate his space, and when he couldn’t find any, Dan decided to upcycle some torn and coverless comic books into his comic book letters and numbers.
“If it’s been in a comic book, I can make a letter!” he proclaims. “Star Wars? Yes. Avengers? Yes. Aquaman? Yes. Blue Devil? Yes. Yes. Yes!”
At the end of 2018, Dan branched out and created his first Harry Potter letters, which you can find on his Facebook page or see at the show.
Dan has been handing out more than 800 comic books every Halloween for the past 5 years at Pittsfield’s Trunk-Or-Treat on the Square (that’s him in the picture).
Dan has sold hundreds of his hand-crafted wonders in various sizes over the years. He’ll have several for sale at the con, and be taking orders for your custom request.
He might even have a few Magic the Gathering cards for sale.
Wayne Kent Comics is a single owner ran Facebook store that also travels around to conventions to provide quality books at an affordable price for all customers. Whether you're just getting started collecting or been doing it longer than he has been on this Earth, there is a little something for everyone! Most books start at $2 a piece and work up from there.
So come out and say, "Hi" while you are at Big River Comic Convention!
Also, make sure to give him a hearty handshake and a thank you, as "Mr. Wayne Kent" is a Military Veteran of the United States Air Force.!
You can find him at table 36 during Big River Comic Convention but WE are lucky enough to find him right here in America's Hometown, Hannibal, MO!
Nathan Overfield has been fascinated with Super Heroes, comic books, and action figures for as long as he can remember. His dad is a toy collector so Nathan spent a lot of time as a child going to flea markets, auctions, and yard sales collecting toys himself.
Later he started dealing and selling toys to fund his own habit.
Nathan love's watching people pick up a toy that brings back childhood memories. There's magic in these plastic toys and he enjoys putting people back together with their treasures from childhood.
Give him a Big #BRCC2019 Welcome and check him out at the Convention!

Q- Do you offer booths at the Convention?
A- Yes- A Artist/Vendor Booths is Defined as FIVE (5) Tables configured into a square. There will be a slight price break for Booths.
Q- What size is a table? 6 ft or 8 ft? I ask because both sizes are shown in the illustration even though the document says 8 ft.
A – We have both 6 ft and 8ft tables at the event location. We will work with you the day of setup to ensure your area suits both your needs and ours.
Q - I don't understand what "table displayed vertical or horizontal" means.
A – Some vendors utilize their own vertical rack systems. This is acceptable, but a table will still need to be purchased as a barrier between the Vendor-Artist and the guests. “We don’t want anyone handling items without your permission.”
Q- If I get two tables, do I get 4 passes?
A- No, sorry. We generously provide 2 complimentary passes to each Vendor-Artist and offer our spots at what we feel is a reduced or affordable rate.
Q- Will food be available on site?
A- Yes- We have sponsored with refreshment services Pepsi as a premium vendor and are anticipating at least (2) two food vendors. However, these will be located “outside” of the venue to ensure Vendor-Artist items are not compromised by food and drink.
Q- Is fee refundable if the Convention cancels?
A- Yes – However, No refunds/transfers will be given under any circumstances unless event is canceled. Then refunds will be issued.
Q- Is a larger view of the layout available?
A- Yes, we have provided a downloadable layout of the event location.
Q- Will tables be skirted?
A – Vendors-Artists will be responsible for providing table skirts.
Q - When are load in times?
A – Load Times will be the day prior to the event. April 12, 2019 from Noon until 6:00PM. If you need other accommodations, please contact us!
Keep in mind that this is a 1st year event in the early planning stages. We will rely heavily on our Vendor-Artists to make this something GREAT and anticipate (based on current feedback) to be a yearly gathering!
