Hutchinson ComicCon Exceeds Expectations

KSAL StaffJune 23, 2014

A comic book convention in Hutchinson drew such a good turnout that ATMs at the site ran out of money.

About 60 exhibitors attended the Smallville ComicCon, which ran Saturday and Sunday at the Meadowlark Building in the State Fair grounds. About 1,500 people paid to get in Saturday, followed by at least 1,000 more Sunday.

Participants bought comic books, costumes, action figures, games and jewelry. By Sunday afternoon, attendees had spent so much that the two ATMs in the site had run of out of cash.

Christopher Wietrick, who helped persuade city officials to proclaim Hutchinson “Smallville” Thursday through Sunday in honor of Superman’s fictional hometown, says the turnout was bigger than expected and organizers are thinking about next year.
