Florida SuperCon moves to Bigger Venue for 2014 Show!

Florida SuperCon Miami Convention Center

FLORIDA SUPERCON is excited to announce that we will be moving to the MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER for our 2014 event! That’s right… Supercon is heading to South Beach!!!!!

We’ve experienced enormous growth this year, with over 25,800 unique attendees and as much as we hate to leave the MACC, which has been our home since 2009, it is time to move into a larger facility with more floor space and parking. We would like to thank everyone who has been supportive of the show over the past eight years, and we hope this move will allow us to continue to grow into one of the premiere geek events in the United States.

Florida Supercon 2014 will take place July 3-6, 2014 at The Miami Beach Convention Center. We will be taking up Hall’s C and D (approx. 264,000 sq feet), as well as the Flamingo and Palm Ballrooms (over 41,000 sq. feet) and 23 break out / panel rooms upstairs (approx. 30,000 sq. feet). All told, including hallway function space we will be using almost 400,000 sq. feet of space! This will make us one of the largest comic cons in the country and allow us to bring in more exhibitors, artists, publishers, guests and events.

We will be posting information on hotels, directions, parking and more in the next few weeks. We hope you can take this journey with us, and we promise to put on the best show we possibly can. A sincere thanks to the over 25,800 individuals who came out to Supercon this year. You have made this possible!

One piece of information we can announce… We are beyond thrilled to announce our first guests of honor for 2014. Legendary Comic Book Artists John Romita Sr. and John Romita Jr. together at Florida Supercon for a very special TRIBUTE TO THE ROMITA’S!

A brief bio of Tony Bedard:
Tony began at Valiant Comics as the editor and writer of several titles including Rai, Psi-Lords, and Magnus Robot Fighter. His early work is often credited by his full name – Anthony Bedard. After Valiant, Tony moved to freelance work for Broadway, Malibu and Crusade Comics, where he wrote the first two issues of Shi: The Series.

Tony then moved to an editorial position at DC Comics. Here he worked on a number of projects, the most notable being the Hourman monthly. He eventually moved into the Vertigo imprint where he edited several monthly titles, including Vertigo’s longest running title Hellblazer.

In 2001 Bedard signed an exclusive contract with CrossGen Comics. Bedard provided editorial knowledge to the company and took over writing CrossGen’s launch title Mystic. He went on to co-create Negation with Mark Waid and wrote a number of series for Crossgen. Bedard was writing the mini-series Negation War (which featured characters from the Negation series and was meant to wrap up important plot threads in Negation and the other CrossGen titles) when CrossGen filed for bankruptcy. As a result, only two issues of the series were ever published, and Bedard became the last writer of the Sigilverse.

After CrossGen, Bedard began work on the Marvel Comics series Exiles, which he wrote for 44 issues and an annual. Bedard also scripted Uncanny X-Men #472-474. Apart from Exiles he had a number of side projects, including the mini-series Spider-Man: Breakout and the final 6 issues of the Rogue monthly comic book.

Tony returned to DC Comics and worked on portions of the weekly series Countdown, a six issue arc on Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes and a four issue Black Canary mini-series.Bedard then went on to write fill-in arcs on both Supergirl and Birds of Prey as well as contributing to The Outsiders fifth week event in August. He was the regular writer for Birds of Prey from #118 until the series end with #127. In 2009 he launched R.E.B.E.L.S with artist Andy Clarke and in 2010 Bedard became the ongoing writer for Green Lantern Corps starting with issue 48, coinciding with the beginning of the “Brightest Day” crossover event and in 2011 he launched the bi-weekly DC Universe Online Legends series co-written with Marv Wolfman.

FL – You Hang Up Signing

Frankie Muniz and the band “You Hang Up” is coming to town and they’re gonna stop off at Florida Super Comics to do a meet and greet before they play at Rocket Town in Pompano on Thursday, April 14, 2011.

The band consists of Aaron Brown (vocals/guitar), Frankie Muniz (drums), Chris Brown (guitar) and Hank Ebarb (bass). The band will be doing a special meet and greet for fans at Florida Super Comics, Games, Anime + More from 4pm-6pm before heading… off to perform at Rocket Town!

The two most striking facts about Phoenix, AZ, rock band YOU HANG UP can be learned within the first five minutes of meeting them.

First, and most obvious, is the fact that the man behind the drum kit is a stranger to no one. Prior to assuming the throne for YOU HANG UP, Frankie Muniz was already a household name as an actor, most notably from his time performing the title role of “Malcolm” in the beloved sitcom “Malcolm in the Middle.”

Second, and perhaps more impressive, is the fact that YOU HANG UP’s music is so honest, catchy and genuinely impactful that any novelty of a celebrity playing in the band is immediately overshadowed.

Immediately following the meet and greet, doors will open at Rocket Town as You Hang Up is joined by Count Me In, New City Lions, Every You, and Truth About Vegas. Rocket Town is located at 371 S. Federal Hwy. Pompano Beach, Fl. 33062. Advance Tickets will be on sale at Florida Super Comics.
