Press Release:

Third Eye Comics of Annapolis, MD, Cards, Comics & Collectibles of Reisterstown, MD, Laughing Ogre Comics of Lansdowne, VA, and Comics & Gaming of Gainesville, VA, have all come together to support a charity convention being held this Saturday in La Plata, MD.

The ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con, which will be held on May 11, 2013, was founded in 2012 to benefit the Archbishop Neale School (ANS) in La Plata. The mission of the show is to create a fun and memorable event for fans and collectors of all ages that supports the educational and spiritual goals of ANS.

In its second year, the show will be expanding to feature more than 80 tables with more than 30 different vendors, as well as 13 artists from as far away as New York City, including Frank Cho, the creator, artist and writer of Liberty Meadows and the artist and writer of Marvel Comics’ new Savage Wolverine comic, who is being sponsored by Cards, Comics & Collectibles. In addition, Jerry & Penelope Gaylord and Brian Turner, artists on Boom! Studios’ Fanboys vs. Zombies, NFL Rush Zone, and Adventure Time, will be appearing courtesy of Third Eye Comics.

“We love seeing new conventions pop up, and the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic-Con in La Plata, MD is one of the most promising new shows we’re doing in 2013,” said Steve Anderson, owner of Third Eye Comics. “With superstar Frank Cho, and a retailer’s room of the best vendors the area has to offer, we know this is going to be the first of many awesome shows we do with ANS.”

“I knew of this show last year but was unable to go,” said Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics & Collectibles and show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Lots of my closest dealer friends had great things to say about the show and the cause. This year, we are coming full force with lots of product and we are all really excited.”

In addition to the vendors and artists, the show will also feature screenings of some rare and unusual films and a sneak-peak of the new documentary Plastic Galaxy – The Story of Star Wars Toys, with a special Q&A session with director Brian Stillman, as well as a game demo of the Conquest Tactics CCG by developer Andy Niggles. Additional programming includes: panels and presentations, silent auctions, door prizes, great food, and the 501st Legion!

“I am really looking forward to this event,” said Gary Dills, Owner of Laughing Ogre Comics. “Any time you can put great people together with a great cause, everyone wins. I am happy to be involved with such an endeavor!”

“We’re looking forward to a great show with an even better cause,” said Tim Chillemi of Comics & Gaming.

The Archbishop Neale School is located at 104 Port Tobacco Road, La Plata MD, 20646. Convention hours are from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, and admission is $5 for adults and children over 10 (children 10 and under are free).
