Even though the second suspect in the marathon bombing was caught late last evening, the call by the show organizers needed to be made before that. Since much of the city was shut down, people couldn't get into the show to set up, and a lot of the guests' travel plans had to be changed.
So, the show will be rescheduled sometime in the near future, and hopefully most of the scheduled guests will be able to return. Secret Identity will be there fir sure.
On a happy note, many of the creators who were already in town for the show have decided to hold mini gatherings at some of the area comic shops. Comicazi and Larry's Comics are both holding events all day today for those interested. The folks at Boston Comic Con have been retweeting details of those meetups if you're looking for more details.
It's pretty awesome that the local comic community is coming together to make something positive out of an unfortunate situation.
We'll have more details about the rescheduling of Boston Comic Con as soon as we get them from the organizers.
