What You Missed from Hub City Comic Con 2021 [Photos]
This year's Hub City Comic Con was full of great cosplays, awesome vendors, and incredible special guests.
I got the chance to meet all but one of the special guests. The only one I missed was Zach Aguilar from Demon Slayer because he was absolutely swarmed the whole time I was there. It was awesome to see so many fans excited to meet him.
I definitely think my most memorable moment was speaking with Ricco Fajardo, who you probably know as Mirio Togata on My Hero Academia. He was full of energy and even spoke with me on-air on Kiss FM. All of the other guests were also incredibly friendly and fantastic to chat with.
Along with the special guests, there were some incredible cosplays. The most common cosplays I saw were from animes like Demon Slayer, Danganronpa, and My Hero Academia. There were many other great cosplays like Loki, Link, and even Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Of course, there were some great vendors as well. I had a special interaction with a family that was running a booth for their company Ink Giant. Not only were they selling stickers, t-shirts, and prints, but they had some very young aspiring artists with them as well. I was able to snag a drawing from one of the little girls of a turtle in a shoe, and I am proud to have it up on my fridge now.
It's the little moments, like interacting with vendors and meeting others that love the same nerdy things as you, that really make conventions special.
If you weren't able to make it, or you just want to relive the weekend, I've got you covered. Here are some photos from this year's Hub City Comic Con.
