The PopCult Bookshelf


We are still operating on reduced power here at PopCult Central. Rather than a review a book that we haven’t had time to read this week, we’re bringing you news of a cool comic book and toy convention happening Saturday in Saint Mary’s.  To tell you about The Old School Convention, here is Aaron Hickman…

“My name is Aaron Hickman. This is a web page for the small comic convention I am trying to put on as a fundraiser for St. Marys Elementary School. I am hoping to raise money for the school that I work at and have grown to love the teachers, students and building. All proceeds will go directly to the school for the playground and other items that will benefit the students and community. Why “The Old School Convention” you may ask? SMES is the oldest functioning school in the state of WV. It does have a dual meaning though. Growing up in the valley I always went to the small comic cons I could find here most of these were in school gyms, armories, park buildings or hotel ball rooms. I loved those shows and still do. I will be bringing in vendors selling various comics, toys, games and ball cards. I will also will be bringing in some local celebrities.”

You will find comic books, toys and other cool stuff, plus I hear that HarraH will make the trek up North to perform an acoustic set, and it’s all for a good cause. The show runs from 10 AM to 5 PM at St. Marys Elementary School, 317 Washington Street in St Marys, WV. Five bucks gets you in the door. There will be raffles and cosplay and tons of other neat stuff. Vendors from all over the Tri-State will have goodies for you to buy and Ghostbusters, WV Division, will be on hand to minimize ghostly apparitions.
