From the tiniest tots to super guys and gals, St. Louis Community College at Wildwood welcomed 500 guests to campus on March 16 for WILDCON 2019, the campus’ sixth annual sci-fi and fantasy convention. From award-winning comic artists and authors, to superheroes, cosplay contests, video games and more, the day was filled with fun and fantasy.
