Visioncon kicked off in Springfield today at the Expo Center downtown.
The convention features everything in the world of comic books, science fiction, fantasy, live action, role-playing and gaming. Author Dennis Young was there today.
“I sell face to face the majority of my books,” Young said. “I want to talk with people. I want to talk with readers. I want to get them interested not just my books but books in general. I meet a lot of people who say ‘ I don’t really read a lot,’ and I want to change that cause reading is something that we all need to do not just for the education but for our own enjoyment and expand our minds the greatest stage in the world is one’s own mind
The convention will run through Sunday. Passes are $40 for the day or $55 for the entire weekend.
