One of the panels at SiouxperCon is all about Swamp Thing!

It's called Roots of the Swamp Thing. This panel will feature John Boylan, Guinness World Record holder of the largest Swamp Thing collection, and former Swamp Thing artist Phil Hester. The panel will be on Saturday at 5:00 PM.

Artist Alley at the Con will feature lots of local artists showing off their work.

Including something I'm particularly excited about (full disclosed: I did some work on it). Sioux Falls artist Chris Biewer is planning to debut his motion comic Cosmic Rage on Sunday.
