Justin Barba

MisCon 32 MisCon Staff

Justin Barba came to his first MisCon as a freshman in high school in 1990 (it was MisCon 5!). It was held at what is now the Days Inn, just a block from MisCon 30. Little did he know that years later he would end up agreeing to help work the hospitality room for MisCon 20. Then he took on managing the writer's workshop. Then MisCon Operations. Then Vice Chair, then Chair. Now he spends all his time planning MisCon, trying to be a good husband, and raising his funny daughter.

    Where have all the heroes gone?
    We keep shining the signal into the night sky, but the call goes unanswered.
    Bleak times have descended upon us . . .
    Will you don a cape and some spandex? How about a suit of dragonscale armor and a battleaxe?
    Itís your choice: become one of the heroes MisCon 32 so desperately needs, or join the villains and plague us all with your riddles, labyrinths, and mutant experiments.
