Convention Center

The Gallery supports your right to assemble, and your right to stand in line, and your right to dress up, and your right to meet celebs that you have always wanted to meet and get a pic with them and find out how nice they are.  There are tons of conventions: Comic Book, Horror, Sci-Fi, Star Trek, Fantasy, you name it.  And they all have one thing in common: people who dig something getting together to have a good time.

The Gallery staff (and our podcast Strangeful Things) make it to as many as we can, but there is no way we can hit them all.  And that’s where you come in.  We want to know what you think of the cons you go to!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Fill out the form below with your thoughts and pics.
  2. Approved reviews go on the site and every month one approved review from that month will win the author an Amazon gift card by random drawing!
  3. If you need a con added to the list, contact us!

The Pros of an Online Con at Dragon Con 2020

The Pros of an Online Con at Dragon Con 2020

Dragon Con is one of those magical things that's hard to explain to people when they haven't experienced it.  A five day event in the heart of Atlanta celebrating all things fandom, this may truly be the largest fancentric event in the U.S. Other conventions like San...

Rhode Island Comic-Con Review

Rhode Island Comic-Con Review

For the smallest state, RICC was a massive convention. From the hall itself to the guest list, there was no shortage of a little something for everybody. Every flavor of nerddom was represented in some fashion. From handcrafted to corporate creations, Spider man to...

More bad PR for Spooky Empire

More bad PR for Spooky Empire

After the complete nightmare caused by the absence of promised Funko dolls at the opening day of Spooky Empire in Orlando, is it possible convention management could make things any worse? Turns out, they apparently can.

An Open Letter to Jason Blum

An Open Letter to Jason Blum

“We’re always trying to do that,” Blum said. “We’re not trying to do it because of recent events. We’ve always been trying. There are not a lot of female directors period, and even less who are inclined to do horror. I’m a massive admirer of Jennifer Kent. I’ve...

Women in Horror Spotlight – Christy Meaux

Hey y’all, it’s Jackie Torrance! Since the rest of the SG crew is at WIHFF right now and Acadia won’t just let me sit around and do nothing, here I am to tell you about a new friend of the Gallery that was discovered at WIHFF! Christy Meaux is a Louisiana based artist...

  • Pauline Dakin
    So if when you were a kid you had to move all the time and worry about assassins and your mom pulled you out of school in the middle of the day to hide from kidnappers would you find it exciting? I ask because that is exactly what happened to Pauline Dakin growing up.  The […]
  • Elma Sands - The Manhattan Well Murder
    Take a young couple who might be in love, the bustling city of Manhattan, and a mystery and you have a good story. Make the year 1799, add Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, and add a liberal serving of the first recorded murder trial transcript in the history of the United States and you have […]
  • The Disappearance of Larry Griffin
    We take the letter carrier who gives us our bills and Bed Bath and Beyond coupons for granted, but back in 1929, Larry Griffin, the postman for Stradbally, Ireland, got taken in a very different way. Join us for the tale of how some townies ruined the Christmas of a genteel (and drunk) civil servant!
  • Elephants
    The glory that is elephants is really something to behold. They are smart, empathetic, and sometimes deadly!  Join us as we look into why elephants kill, who they kill, and get all judgey about whether or not the killings are justified. The whales of the land are ready to be explored!
  • The Anasazi Part 2
    We wrap up Native American Heritage Month with the second half of the story of the people in the Southwest who built an amazing society and then just sort of melted away. Where did they go?  Well that's what we are going to try to find out in the conclusion to our coverage of The […]
  • The Anasazi Part 1
    There are wonders within the boundaries of what is now the United States that way too many people don't know about. Continuing our dedication to Native American History Month we present the first part of the people that are known by some as the Anasazi. Also, we learn what happens when a cowpoke decides poking […]
  • The Serpent Mound
    The indigenous people of what is now called Ohio decided to make themselves a monument and we're gonna talk about it.  The location is the largest effigy mound in the world and we will be sure to explain what an effigy mound is right near the beginning (sort of) so you aren't lost!  
  • Rebecca Zahau
    Sometimes the official story seems mighty sus. This week, Acadia and Shooey take a look at the case of Rebecca Zahau, who was declared a suicide and the facts of the case seem to point to the absolute opposite of that. Come with us to sunny San Deigo as we dig into this sad story.
  • Demons, Mistakes, and Kennedy Ife
    Since this is the Halloween episode for 2021, we thought we would keep riding the demon train. Unfortunately, as usual, we learned that humans are what screws most things up.  They certainly did in the case of Kennedy Ife. Also, we might directly and overtly attack pretty much all of the religions. I can't remember […]
  • Danielle Harkins
    When you send your kids to school, you have a reasonable expectation that they will not be brainwashed into believing that they have demons inside them that have to be let out. Unless Danielle Harkins is their teacher, then you totally should NOT have that expectation because it is gonna happen!
