About This Convention
Formerly a comic book store in central NJ for eleven years, WildPig Comics now runs a comic convention twice a year based exclusively around our inventory. Our convention features 60,000 50 cent comics from the Silver Age to the present in alphabetical order, 2,000 trades at 50% off, comic and comic-related magazines at 50% off, free raffles at 1 and 4 PM (featuring Marvel Omnibuses and DC Absolute Editions), and 30 artists. We offer a superb selection at bargain prices, so customers never have to haggle or fear being swindled. Our convention is dedicated to a celebration of the comic book medium, so all 3500 square feet of space is free of the multimedia dog and pony aspects of the bigger shows.
