Six Flags Great Comic Book Adventure is Coming in May 2011

PRESS RELEASE:

It’s official!

“Six Flags Great Comic Book Adventure” is coming!

Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ has asked John Paul of www.njcomicbookshows.com (aka Pug Productions) to run a comicon for them on Sunday, May 29th. That is the full opening weekend for the park this season (limited hours of operation begin in April) … and also the opening of their Green Lantern rollercoaster.

Since it would be the first comicon at the park, they are starting this year with a one day show. It will have extended hours though… from 10:30-8:00.

There will be 100 dealer tables and dozens of creators.

While they are soliciting dealers and creators, the amount of space is finite, so if anyone is interested please send Mr. Paul an e-mail at pugprdctns@aol.com

Even though they just finalized a few days ago, they already have commitments from the following dealers (and more) for nearly fifty tables: Gary Platt, Wild Pig Comics, New World Manga, Comic Crusaders, Bob Fox, Mike Williams, Bazooka Jeff, Chris Wertz, Graffiti Comix, Adam the Comic Pimp and Rob Campitiello. Cost is $100 per 6′ table, with two park passes included for each table purchased.

Artists so far will include Lee Weeks and Fred Hembeck. They expect to wind up with a large well-rounded roster of both major and local talent.

There will be a costume contest with prizes and also a charity auction for the “Childrens Miracle Network”. More events will be added prior to the show.

Convention admission will be included with park admission for the day. There will be a link up soon to prepurchase park tickets for the day at $30 (half off the regular price of $60). Remember, this gives you full access to the park as well at a bargain price.

If any of you remember the very successful Montclair Art Museum show run by Mr. Paul a few years ago, this should blow that away!

Additional updates will be provided as more info becomes available.

Fred Hembeck Guest at September 26th East Hanover NJ Expo

September 20, 2010 by  
Filed under Comic Books, Convention News, New Jersey

Press Release:

The special guest artist at the East Hanover, NJ Comic Book Expo on Sunday, September 26th will be Fred Hembeck! The show is being held at the Ramada Inn Conference Center Hotel, 130 RT 10 West, East Hanover, NJ. Hours are 10-4, admission is only $2 (kids under 12 free) and there is plenty of free parking!

Fred Hembeck was born in 1953, reborn in 1959 when he read his very first comic book, and born yet a third time in 1977 when, while attempting to break into the comics biz, he somehow BECAME a comic book character himself (which is much too long a story to go into here, trust me…)!! Since then, he’s notched such accomplishments as serving as staff cartoonist for The Daily Planet, roasted The Fantastic Four, and most infamously, destroyed the Marvel Universe (or tried to, anyway…)!! These days, Fred continues to churn out his quirky, squiggle-laden cartoons from his upstate New York home, in the company of Lynn Moss, his wife of three decades, Julie Hembeck, daughter of two, and cats Mario and Luigi, pets of one. He enjoys leaving the house occasionally to meet with fans at events like the East Hanover Comic Book Show–and promises not to talk in the third person while doing so, honest!!
