What makes this convention work as a one-day-only event is that it isn’t like most cons I have been to where the celebrities are what shine, which don’t get me wrong, LouisvilleCon does try to provide some decent guests, but what shines here is the sheer amount of vendors and the quality of those vendors which is what I tend to look forward to the most.
