Connecticut ComiCONN – the State’s BIGGEST celebration for comic books, collectibles and cosplay returns for it’s 5th annual con. To meet the demands of its fans, this powerful, pop-culture party has grown to a three-day event and found a new fortress of fun at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport,CT!
Connecticut ComiCONN delivers amazing awesomeness as fans have the opportunity to meet Marvel and DC Comics creators who bring their heroes to life in the comic pages, actors from TV/movie screens and even in video games! There will be Costume and Trivia Contests, Cool Cars like the Batmobile, folks dressed as heroes and villains from comics, Star Wars, Doctor Who and more! Fans can shop over 300 tables of cools stuff - from vintage and modern comics to original artwork, action figures and movie props, posters and gaming supplies – you’ll find it here!
“Connecticut ComiCONN is fun for fans of all ages”, said Mitch Hallock, promoter of the event, “This show was created to give comic fans a chance to meet each other, their favorite actors from TV and movies, get autographs, photos and sketches, talk to the folks who created the heroes they “marvel” at!” said Hallock.
“ComiCONN is a great value as well! Fans don’t have to spend hours traveling and spending a huge amount of money just to get pushed around like at the big city cons. We have top talent named like artists David Finch, Howard Porter, Jerry Ordway, Bob Camp and more. Being at the Webster Bank Arena allows easy access off the highway, or a few minutes walk from the Metro-North train station and even Long Island fans can walk off the Port Jefferson ferry into the show”. Last year’s show drew a long line of thousands of eager fans, so this bigger venue allows for more exhibit areas and we have added extra days. “There are people and things to see all day from Friday thru Sunday so fans do not have to rush”, Hallock added.
“We are very excited to have Connecticut ComiCONN on our calendar of entertainment.” saidHoward Saffan, president of Harbor Yard Sports and Entertainment, LLC, which manages the arena. “We’re committed to bringing family fun and super-powered events like in the world to the arena, and Connecticut ComiCONN has established itself as great time for comic book and movie fans in the North East.”
