Anyone know if Adventure Con is happening this year? The website has been down for a while and no one that's "in the know" with the convention has bothered to announce anything. After the stupid move away from Knoxville that Adam the owner made i'd say it didn't do so well last year and he's just called it quits. Ever since he took it over he's been running it into the ground, guess it just died. Anyone hear anything?

Yeah man, Adam has definatly ruined AdCon. I'd say he's just tucking tail and running without even letting us know.

I'm willing to bet Adam won't be doing it this year. He's the worst thing that ever happened to AdCon. What used to be a pretty good little toy show with costumers turned into a fiasco, and moving it to Pigeon Forge was the stupidest move of all the stupid moves.

I didn't even go last year cause the guest list sucked ass. That first in '07 year i went it had a LOT of comic artist there and I really enjoyed it, but the past few years it has really got so a one day pass is all u really need to buy. Cause mainly u can see it all in just one day. Were back in '07 it took me 2 1/2 days to soak it all in.

It sure was fun years ago. I loved looking at all the old stuff. It was like a museum. And rubbing elbows with some celeb's was cool. Adam West & Fred Kruger were top shelf.

I doubt they'll have it at all. Fun while it lasted. We can only hope someone starts a new/better one soon.

Adventurecon only got washed up/out of work actors and/or celebs who were something 10-20 years ago. Would be nice if they got A grade actors to come to the show. But I guess you have to go to Comic-Con to get that.

Not trying to disrespect the above poster, yet in Crossville it's, "hey, LET'S GO TO WALMART FOR A GOOD TIME!" I'm someone who used to live in Crossville and I can tell you that for sure. Those celebs left us with good memories, and that's part of the point of getting to meet them. I'll take AdCon over Crossville walmart any day.
on a more serious note, Pigeon Forge during tourist season doesn't sound too good of a way if getting business for a con. Knoxville was better in that reguard

Looks like they are going to try to hold it again this summer back in Knoxville. We will see how that goes.
