    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.

    We’re getting ready for our biggest, craziest day of the year – FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! You don’t want to miss it!

There’s a large selection available this year (over 50!) – but even that isn’t enough for us. Austin Books always adds additional title to choose from!

    We recommend you bring some water if it’s a hot day. We have industrial fans blowing, but its important to stay hydrated!

    Then stop inside and meet our special guests for the day: writers Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, upcoming Chin Music) and Matthew Sturges (House of Mystery, FCBD new release Damsels.) They’ll be signing their books and comics and answering questions at times to be announced soon!

    Our friend Yehudi Mercado (Pantalones, TX, Buffalo Speedway) will also be joining us to sign new FCBD release Mouse Guard/ Rust Flipbook, featuring Pantalones, Tx activity pages he created for the special issue!

    For the third year in a row, the CCP Comics will be sketching for free for those waiting in line. They have an exciting tie-in to announce soon, so keep an eye out here for updates!

    Be sure to bring your camera, because Sidekick Girl and Wonder Woman will be patrolling the line!

    It’s going to be our biggest Free Comic Book Day ever!

    If you’re interested in volunteering to be a part of the Austin Books FCBD team this year, email us at info@austinbooks.com with the words “FCBD volunteer” in the subject line! It’s a non-paid gig, but we’ll load you up with FCBD comics!
