TOPCON IS GEEK: EXPLAINING THE MEANING OF TOPEKA’S ORIGINAL GEEK EXPO

f5b7aa8ab0f9f544438db72040ea71d0

There was a time when the word “Geek” meant that you were odd, different, not like others, weird and outside what was considered the norm of society and that has not changed. What has changed is what was once considered a derogatory term has now become a badge of honor.
TopCon started as a fluke; a simple buy, sell trade comic book show that grew into something more. The GYPSY, TopCon’s Creator and Executive Director has to constantly explain to people that though TopCon was indeed Topeka’s first Comic-Con that the “Comic-Con” designation no longer applies to TopCon. “We are a Geek Expo; that is to say we embrace all things Geek. Yes comics are still a part of who and what we are because the comic book is truly the well spring from which all Geeks are born yet we are so much more than just comic book collectors.”
TopCon is made up of Comic Geeks, Game Geeks, Anime Geeks, Cosplay Geeks, Film Geeks, Television Geeks, Toy Geeks, Art Geeks, Literature Geeks, History Geeks and every form of Geek that was ever born into Geekdom.
So if you come to TopCon Geek Expo looking for Comic Books, yes you’ll find them. But if you come to TopCon thinking we are only Comic Books you have come for the wrong reason and will soon discover that we are so much more: TopCon Is Geek!
