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...

  • The Radium Girls
    You know how big companies are evil and terrible to their employees? Well, this is not a new phenomenon.  Join us as we learn about the Radium Girls. These women got good jobs helping out with the war effort except (big surprise) it was terrible. I know everything is awful right now and it is […]
  • The Lancashire Witches
    America learned so many of its terrible traits from England. One of them was the concept of: call a bunch of women witches and see what happens (nothing good). We had Salem. But 80 years earlier, England had Lancashire.  So sit back with some Yorkshire Tea and drink up the story of religion, politics and […]
  • Mary Vincent
    This show has a lot of terrible things in it. That's kind of our thing. And the story of Mary Vincent and what the scum of the Earth, Lawrence Singleton, did to her is terrible. But this story is more that terrible.  It is downright inspiring.  And when you hear it you will be amazed. […]
  • The Yuba County Five - Part Two
    The most mysterious case we have done in a while concludes this week with part two of the Yuba City Five.  I have been thinking about this case for weeks and I am no closer to a solution than I was when we started.  If you didn't listen to part one, go back and listen […]
  • The Yuba County Five
    This case is the most baffling set of events we have covered in quite a while.  Five men go to a basketball game and never come home.  Seems like it is straightforward but oh my goodness it is anything but that.  This is part one of two but honestly it could probably be one of […]
  • The Michigan Dogman
    It's like a night watchman can't even patrol the manufacturing plant they work for without encountering a dog man. Night Watchmen, a local politician in another state, three girls near the woods, all of them running into a scary dogman. Join us as we get to the bottom of the case of the Michigan Dogman.  […]
  • The Hinterkaifeck Murders
    This week, special guest Hannah Selector and Acadia investigate the Hinterkaifeck Murders. Almost exactly 100 years ago, en extended family on a small German farm were found dead. Who did it?  Well, there were weird things in the lead up to the crime, and the aftermath had plenty of suspects. But, at the end of […]
  • Al Kite
    We do a lot of stories about upsetting topics. But this one? This one? This one has to be one of the most senseless, terrible things we have covered in a while. Not that it will make you mistrust everyone you know and will ever know in the future...oh, wait, it just might! The story […]
  • Pedro Lopez - The Monster of the Andes
    Pedro Lopez spent the 1970s in Peru, Ecuador, and Columbia. Over that time span he sexually abused and murdered more than 100 little girls. The only thing more chilling than the crimes of this guy is what ended up happening with him.  Seriously you will not believe how this story ends. Join us as we […]
  • Sally Horner - The Real Life Lolita
    You probably know that Lolita is a book by Vladimir Nabokov about a pervert perving on a child. But you might not have known that there was a real case that may have inspired the author. The story of Sally Horner is complicated and tragic and should make you think twice before opening your yap […]
