The fair, running from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., will feature comic book artists, toy and model sales and your favorite superheroes.
"Fans who amaze at the exploits of Spider-Man, Superman, Batman or Iron Man in the comic pages or on the big screen can come and celebrate their geekdom at ComiCONN! Connecticut’s coolest celebration of Comics, Collectibles and Cosplay," said Mitch Hallock of Trumbull, one of the fair's founders and organizers.
“With the 75th anniversary of Superman and his return to the big screen, plus the further adventures of Marvel’s Iron Man and Wolverine, and a new Star Trek film – fans cannot get enough and want more,” Hallock said. “This show was created to give comic fans a chance to meet, get sketches and talk to the folks who created the heroes they 'marvel at.'”
Hallock added that the line-up includes: Artists; Mark Bagley, Ron Garney, Jerry Ordway, Scott Hanna, Chris Giarrusso, Billy Tucci, Joe Staton, Matthew Dow Smith. Writers: Tom DeFalco, J.M. DeMatties, Ron Marz, New York Times author – Michael Jan Friedman, Paul Kupperberg. Co-Creator of Ren & Stimpy - Bob Camp, The voice of Thundercats' Lion-O and many other characters – Larry Kenney, from TV’s “Comic Book Men” Mike Zapcic, Ming Chen and Rob Bruce and many more.Last year, so many people attended that latecomers had to park in the lots next door to the hotel.
