What started as an idea blossumed into reality.  The shows began on October of 2011, our founder, Leo Guerrero, attended many conventions during the 1980's when they were held in the loop at the Congress Hotel. It was a time that any collector could go get his/her favorite collectible and get a chance to meet any creative person from any comic book company. 
G Connn, formally called T-C-S, started at the Holiday Inn of Midway Airport in a 2000 square foot room, and now has moved to the Orland Park Civic Center, which is 4300 square feet of space. Dealers include comic shops, vintage toys, and all other memorabilia ranging from posters to statues are represented at each show. We strive to get as diversified an offering as we can so that you, the collector, can have more to choose from.
This latest show, which will take place on Sunday, September 8th, will have a lot of what collectors expect at a show:  great dealers and easily accessible creators.
