Southern Hills Mall hosts Comic and Toy Show

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Anyone who is a fan of superheroes and video games is encouraged to make their way to the mall this weekend for a special free event. The Southern Hills Mall is hosting the Quad Con Comic and Toy Show this weekend. 

More than 60 vendors are set up throughout the shopping center selling comic books, action figures, and more. 

Whether you’re into Marvel or anime, there is something for everybody.   

“We try to celebrate all things pop culture,” said Comic and Toy Show event coordinator John Wells. “So if you’re into the Simpsons, or if you’re into video games, Link, Zelda, that kind of thing, if you’re into any kind of stuff like that in the pop culture realm you’re going to be able to find it here at the show.” 

This is the first time the Quad Con show has come to Sioux City and the love for pop culture has brought out a decent crowd. 

“It’s things like movies, and television, and cartoons, and comic books, toys, games and they just bring people together and in a unifying kind of way,” said pop culture artist Jaime Coker. “There’s a lot of people here. We’ve never been to this town before, but I’m very encouraged by what I see.”   

But the event is more than a collector’s dream, it also gives the chance to celebrate pop culture with the community. 

“I think that social interaction is really important and I think people want that and they don’t know how to find it,” said Wells. “So this is a great opportunity to come out to a free event and explore like ‘Oh wow, you’re into that, I’m really into that too.’”  

The Comic Book and Toy Show is free to attend on Sunday from noon to 6 pm.
