JOPLIN, Mo. – JoMoCon kicked off in Joplin this morning for its first-ever event.

The event focused on the following categories:

  • pop culture
  • anime
  • sci-fi
  • fantasy
  • gaming

Officials say the event is similar to Comic-Con.

“I think it is really cool because normally, we would have to travel out of town or out of state and so this is the first one in town, so it is nice,” said Tobi Crow, local Cosplayer.

The event also featured voice actor John Gremillion who is featured on My Hero Academia and One Piece.

Tickets cost $10 and a portion of the proceeds went towards Turnaround Ranch in Joplin.
