Classicon — Fall’s Last Pulp Con

Oct 8, 2018 by

As the leaves disappear from the trees, the pulp and paperback convention scene draws to a close. Classicon, one of the oldest pulp and paperback shows, marks the end of the season. Two times each year, Classicon takes place in Lansing, Michigan. A one-day show, you’ll find calendar, pin-up, and illustration artwork, plus thousands of rare pulp magazines, paperbacks, vintage comic books, and other collectibles for sale or trade. Although a date has not yet been set for this fall’s Classicon, you can learn more about the convention by visiting curiousbooks.com/classicon.html.
