Convention Reports

Review of Cardboard*Con 9: Jurassic Box (2018)

Jurassic Box was the 9th installment of this American science fiction convention, dedicated to encouraging fossilized nerds to dress up in cardboard costumes. 2018’s theme, “Jurassic Box”, was the least effective cardboard pun yet. Despite this fact it was expected to bode well for attendance, which typically numbers in the dozens. The convention had become so successful that it generated a string of successful sequels, despite the vehement refusal of Steven Spielberg to contribute a large cash infusion. Numerous articles based on the convention have been written by various news outlets, in spite of their best judgment and the strenuous objections of their editorial staffs.
