One of the coolest things happening locally is sadly, something your PopCulteer will have to miss due to a family commitment. BatCon, a pop culture convention inspired by, but not exclusively devoted to, Batman, takes place at Kingsway Church (the former Nitro High School).

There will be local artists, vendors selling cool toys and stuff and cosplayers galore. One of the guest artists is Glen Brogan, whose tribute to the 1989 Batman movie is seen at the head of this post.

I’m hoping that this is a huge success, because I’d love to be able to go next year.
