My Origin Story

Welcome to Con Junkies! I’m thrilled you’re here—because we’re a lot alike, you and me. We’re both in love with Pop Culture and want to attend Comic Book Conventions (otherwise, what are you even doing here!?).

Chris and Billy West - Con Junkies
Me with Billy West at NYCC!

I started this site because I remember being overwhelmed when I attended my first con. I started off big and maybe bit off more than I could chew at the time.

It was 2011 and my first convention was going to be New York Comic Con, the biggest convention on the east coast at the time and now the largest in the US!

I didn’t know what to expect, what to bring, how to act, when to get there, how to approach artists and celebrities. You name it and I was worried about it.

I spent some time learning the hard way, but after that first convention, I was hooked! Over the last five years, I’ve attended conventions big and small and now I want to share what I’ve learned.

Aside from an awesome convention calendar where you can find local conventions in your state, I will be writing weekly blog posts giving you tips, tricks, and information to help you get the most out of your favorite conventions!

The best way to keep up with our latest blog posts is to sign up for our email newsletter. In fact, why don’t you sign up here and get our updates each week starting now—it’s a BIG help:

Thank you for signing up and I hope to see you at a convention one day!
