Back on topic, though, Palmer Event Center is a great venue for the Convention! That's where the record convention, tattoo convention, various comic conventions, etc. are every year.

We'll have a whole extra year and saved funds to finally frame up all that stuff we got at last MC.

Its nice to see them book a real venue. I liked past years, particularly the set up of 2 and 3, but I always felt like they "made it work" at the places it was held.

I love MondoCon and it's always a blast. I will miss the hangs this year.

However, I don't mind them skipping a year. MC happens at a busy time of year and always occurs around Fantastic Fest (which usually trumps MC by a longshot, though FF has its own issues this year). Having to get the time off work, make accommodations, have $ available to pick up the 'must haves', etc. is always a lot of work and it'll be nice not to have to deal with that this year. I know it's a bassackwards approach, but I always go to MC hoping that there isn't a ton of stuff that grabs my eye.

I'm glad that they didn't go forward with one if they didn't think it would live up to the high standards or it wouldn't be ready in time. Taking a year off is probably a risky move considering the momentum the event has and the state of the poster scene in general, but I'd rather have no con than a subpar one.

So you're saying the bubble is bursting?

And I'm sure 1 or 2 posters still won't be ready.

News Justin! IshmaelCon 2018 is happening, hence Mondo is stepping back.

Live wrestling, event prints, an excel list issued to attendees two weeks prior to opening night to secure prints and madballs for the first 50 in line.
