Boston Comic Con Celebrates Sixth Year‏ April 20th-21st
April 4, 2013
Boston Comic Con celebrates its sixth year with our biggest show ever! April 20th-21st at the Hynes Convention Center will see retailers, artists, and fans coming together for an entire weekend of fun. Events will include Q&A panels, stand up comedians, a zombie movie marathon, gaming, and much more. You definitely will not want to miss the annual cosplay contest which features hundreds of fans dressing as their favorite characters from comics, video games, and cartoons! This year we are happy to announce famous cosplayer Yaya Han as our guest judge.
The guest list features some of the most illustrious comic creators in the world including George Perez (Superman), Carlos Pacheco (X-Men), Mike Mignola (Hellboy), Amanda Conner (Silk Spectre), Mark Bagley (Fantastic Four), Bill Willingham (Fables) plus many, many more! We are also excited to welcome two stars of the hit television series The Walking Dead; Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Jon Bernthal (Shane) will be on hand both days to sign autographs for their legions of fans!
For this year’s show specials we have a limited edition t-shirt featuring Captain America artwork by world-renowned comic artist Tim Sale and an exclusive My Little Pony variant cover drawn by Agnes Garbowska! Both of these are sure to sell out and become collector’s items! Get them while you can!
Tickets are $25 per day or $40 for the weekend and available at the door or through the Boston Comic Con website: www.bostoncomiccon.com.
I plan on being there and taking in the sights for AFi.  If you are in the area, I hope you can attend also.

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.
