I saw that. I feel like they're usually slower to get Planet on the schedule than some of the other larger shows.

I saw Jimmy and Amanda in Vegas this summer, when Planet was still listed as the same weekend as C2E2, and they had noted they where coming to KC next year.  Glad to see if worked out.

Claremont has been listed as well.

Guest list is off to a nice start. I’m skeptical I’ll make it this year though, will need to be in Cleveland that weekend for a conference... :cry:

Ok, am I the only one who is a little underwhelmed by the comic creator guest list thus far? Not saying it sucks, but I was hoping for more. Claremont and Eastman are the only names that would wow me.

Planet is still not on CGC's calendar...

YES!!!!   I am not sure if C2E2 the week before and Wondercon that weekend are impacting the guest list, but the current guest list is not doing much for me.  Also, Claremont and Eastman are repeat guest from two years ago.  I was hoping the 20th Anniversary show would pull out all the stops . . .

Just so it’s in the thread for anyone interested, will you be taking blue label drop offs as well as signature witnessing?

I think this is the first year I have heard of CGC not being there.  They must all be at Wonder Con

It's making my Planet experience considerably cheaper! I'll just wait until the next convention I go to that CGC is setup at. More funds available to pick up collections and good deals at the show this way.

If we’re talking cons in the Midwest that may be a while...

Yeah.  It's pretty sparse here in the flyover this year.  Don't they know us hill and plains people have money to spend on comic book grading and encapsulation as well???

Friday only for me this year. Do we know which boardies are setting up at the con? I know Dale Roberts is on the list. Art (Monster's Lair) already said he won't be setting up this year. Help me make my list of must stops so I can give some boardies my money.
