    Are Aidan and Dean appearing on both days of the convention and is there a separate charge for the photo and autograph sessions with them? Also is there a limit to the number of things you can have them autograph? Thanks so much.

      They are really good about answering questions via their Twitter page: @BostonComicCon
      Also, like Colin said above, Aidan and Dean will be there both days and autographs are $40 each. I also found out that Aidan and Dean will have a panel together, schedule TBA.
      Hope that helps! :)
