Boston Comic Con 2013 Rescheduled for August 3rd-4th

 

tsale_bcc13
Press Release:

Boston Comic Con thanks all our fans who supported us by demonstrating the highest degree of patience and  understanding imaginable during a very challenging time for all of us. And we want to reward you, our fans, by putting on an even bigger and better show than originally planned! The new, rescheduled date will be AUGUST 3-4, 2013!!

We’re moving! The Seaport World Trade Center is the new home of Boston Comic Con! It features more parking as well as access to the Silver Line on Boston’s historic waterfront.

We have reconfirmed our major comic book creator guests (who have all been wonderfully supportive of us).  Let’s welcome back… George Perez, Mike Mignola, Mark Bagley, Bill Willingham, Tony Daniel, Ed McGuinness, Tim Sale, Steve Niles, Colleen Doran, Aaron Lopresti, Don Rosa, William Stout, Amy Reeder, David Mack, Mike Choi, and Joe Eisma!  And we’re still re-confirming!

And guess what… we are adding even more guests as the support for Boston Comic Con keeps pouring in from comic book creators all over the country. Let’s give a Boston welcome to… Dan Didio, Phil Jimenez, Brian Azzarello, Dave Johnson, Dan Panosian, Cully Hamner, Barry Kitson, Paul Gulacy, James O’Barr, Howard Chaykin, and Michael Golden! That’s just the beginning. Keep an eye open as more guests join us leading up to the show.

We are also in the process of re-confirming our media guests and adding new ones as well.  Be patient, as it takes a little bit more time to re-book celebrities (welcome to Hollywood).  We’ll keep you posted.

We will of course continue with our great programming events like the Boston Comic Con costume contest, film festival, gaming, and charity art auction.

As a reminder, advance tickets purchased online for the original show date will be GOOD for the rescheduled show.  And if for any reason you can’t make it to the show in August, please submit a refund request through Eventbrite and you will be refunded. You will have until August 1, 2013 to do so. Keep watching our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more info as we grow the guest list between now and then.

The Dallas Comic Con Returns in May 2013 with Guests from Comics and Film

Dallas Comic Con May 2013

Press Release:

The Dallas Comic Con adds exciting guests from comics & film for their May 17-19 show!

This May 17-19, the Dallas Comic Con returns to the Irving Convention Center with an already-impressive lineup of guests from the world of comic books and pop culture film & television. Several announcements have been made on almost a daily basis via the show’s official Facebook page, and (as of this writing) tickets are about to go on sale for online customers through the show’s official website. The 2011 edition of the DCC was the first to be held in the Irving Convention Center, which at the time was just completed. The 12,000 fans that showed up made the event a success, but in May of 2012 that attendance number nearly doubled, making Dallas Comic Con a convention to take note of in the Southwest.

Event Manager Mark Walters stated, “The growth of our event was incredible, and we’re thinking the 2012 show, which incidentally fell on our 10th Anniversary, was a major stepping stone for us. This year we’re limiting tickets to deal with potential crowd issues, so we’re encouraging fans to buy their passes early and not miss out on the fun. Also new for 2013 is the 3-day aspect, something that should become the norm going forward. We’re giving the fans and extra day to do all the shopping they want and meet their industry heroes. We pride ourselves on being an accessible event for all ages, and this year’s show is already shaping up nicely.”

The guest list started off with some cool names from both the media and comic book industry. Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner, will be appearing on Saturday at the event, and Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti make a welcome return to the Dallas area signing all three days. Other recent comic book guest additions include the legendary Jim Steranko (who designed Indiana Jones), Len Wein (co-creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing), Dave Johnson (cover artist of Punisher and Deadpool), Andrew Robinson (cover artist of Detective Comics and Starman), Eric Canete (artist of Superboy and New Avengers: Luke Cage), Doug Sneyd (legendary Playboy artist), Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies), Mark Brooks (Uncanny Avengers), Phil Noto (Batgirl and Buffy), and John Lucas (Exterminators and Uncanny X-Force). Recent media guest additions include Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four), Natasha Henstridge (Species), Brent Spiner (Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation), LeVar Burton (Geordi on Star Trek: The Next Generation), Gates McFadden (Beverly Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters and The Crow), John Noble (Fringe), Jasika Nicole (Fringe), and Jason David Frank and Catherine Sutherland (both from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)… but the guest list is by no means done. The event runs three days and features a fun, family atmosphere. There will be multiple floors filled with activities and Q&A panels all weekend.

HeroesCon 2013 Tickets & Tables Available Now

HeroesCon 2013 tickets and artist alley tables are now available for the 2013 show which takes place on June 7-9th!

$30 Discount Passes available until January 1, 2013 / 3 Day Passes will be $40 after the 1st of the year. You can save $25 by ordering now! Click here for tickets!

Artist Alley tables are also available:

Heroes Convention is not only one of the most recognizable names on the comics convention circuit, but has a well-deserved reputation as a convention that puts comics first, meaning aisles packed with fans looking for new comics and comic-related merchandise to check out. Our 2013 HeroesCon will be one of our biggest yet, and booth space is fully expected to sell out well in advance of the show. No space is reserved without payment in full: act now to reserve your space!

TABLES:
ARTISTS ALLEY TABLE: $300 Includes 6′ table, 2 chairs, and 2 passes. Great for a solo venture or a two-man team. Or a two-woman team. Man/Woman teams are fine, too.
FOR ADDITIONAL SEATS above the allotment you receive with your purchased space(s), the cost is $50 per additional seat, up to a maximum of 1 additional person per Artists Alley Table, no exceptions–we want everyone to have the most pleasant and comfortable show they can, and overcrowded tables are the opposite of pleasant and comfortable show they can, and overcrowded tables are the opposite of pleasant and comfortable.

NOTE that paid spaces in Artists Alley are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Unless you have other specific preferences, we will place tables beginning in the center of the area, moving outward. There is a space on the Artists Alley registration page where you can put seating preferences if you have them. We try as hard as we can to honor these, but obviously we cannot honor all of them, so thanks for your understanding!
