Needless Things Podcast 216 – MomoCon 2018 with Mike Gordon

NT%2B216%2Bpic.jpg

 
Our old pal Mike Gordon returns to the show to join Dave for a recap of MomoCon!
 
2018 was Needless Things’ first year at MomoCon! Not knowing exactly what to expect, our own Dave West spent two days and a night finding out what the anime/video game/comic book/pop culture convention is all about. From panels to the dealers’ room to guests, MomoCon had a very different set of offerings.
 
Mike Gordon, on the other hand, has had a table at MomoCon for his Tiki Zombie comic for several years now. With more experience and a different perspective – from behind the table – Mike was a perfect guest for this reflective conversation.
 
Listen in as Dave and Mike discuss the Momo-pros and Momo-cons of Atlanta’s fastest-growing pop culture phenomenon!
