Adventures at Astronomicon 2023 – Event Recap

PopHorror had the pleasure of attending Astronomicon 6 on Saturday, March 4, 2023.

The event started off great. At the entrance, there were promoters for John Wick 4, handing out free merchandise. I snagged myself a t-shirt, a pin, and a portable dog water dish. This was awesome!

John Wick 4

There were so many celebrities to meet, but I had to narrow it down. My priority list was to meet Ethan Suplee (Mallrats), Jason Lee (Mallrats), and Trevor Fehrman (Clerks II and III). Unfortunately, Jason Lee had to cancel because his travel was impacted by the winter storm that hit on Friday, but these things happen.  I had such a great experience meeting the other two celebrities that this more than made up for it. 

The rest of my time was spent checking out all the vendors. I love looking at all the creativity and I am always in search of fun horror collectibles to add to my collection. 

My Favorite Vendors

Number 1: My Nerdvana Toys and Collectibles. (Follow on Facebook) -found my Nirvana or Nerdvana with all the Funko and Necca collectibles.
