Pete Mongelli, co-founder of Spooky Empire, shared, “Every time I passed the ticketing tables or autographs rooms, I was in awe of the never ending lines of fans filled with excitement and anticipation to be face-to-face with their heroes. Spooky Empire has created a solid family for the last 15 years and that’s what you feel at the convention. Everyone is coming together as family from the kids, to the attendees and special guests. Spooky Empire drew in an epic crowd in 2017 and we’re excited for what’s to come.”
