The months between fall and spring can feel like an eternity to anyone, but perhaps especially to fans of comic conventions, which normally occur during the balmier parts of the year. Fear not. Krampus Con 2017
, Boise's first winter comic-con, promises to break through the darkness with a holiday-themed bazaar, featuring artists and vendors from around the northwest, and a celebration of comic books and toy culture. The family friendly event, hosted by ABU Games
and themed around the anti-Santa who punishes naughty kids, includes a costume contest, guest speakers and games. Plus, there will be food trucks on hand to help replenish your stamina between Christmas shopping and Magic: The Gathering
sessions. Get ready to dress up and nerd out for the holidays this December—and remember, Krampus is watching.
