“Boston Comic Con and the Red Sox are a great match. People are passionate about their fandom, whether they are fans of comic books and pop culture or of baseball,” said Nick Kanieff, co-founder of Boston Comic Con. “We started as a small show nine years ago and have grown to become New England’s premier comic convention. The partnership with the Red Sox further solidifies Boston Comic Con’s local focus and our commitment to truly being part of the Boston entertainment and tourism community.”
Boston Comic Con is not only drawing interest from the area’s extensive comic book fan base, but it is also growing into a destination event that brings thousands of tourists to Boston. During the three-day convention, A-list celebrities from science fiction, fantasy, and horror will participate in panel discussions, Q&As, photo-ops, and autograph signings, alongside comic book creators who are showcasing their work. There are also auctions, cosplay shows and competitions, gaming tournaments, workshop sessions and a film festival.
