Wauke-Con Draws a League of Extraordinary Fans!

November 3, 2021

Bradbury and comics fans found fun and treasures at our 1st Comic Con in Ray Bradbury’s hometown. Waukegan’s native son Ray Bradbury, the renowned author of Fahrenheit 451, was both a lifelong comic book fan and comic book writer who attended the very first Comic-Con in San Diego, 1970. Here at Wauke-Con, visitors were treated to jewelry, rare and wonderful books, toys, and more.

Thank you to our creative exhibitors and all who attended! Your support of RBEM has made the 1st Wauke-Con possible.

Thanks to our RBEM volunteers and supporters.
They made Wauke-Con happen!
