Boston Comic Con Announces New Date and Location

Because of the events of The Boston Marathon Bombing the Boston Comic Con had to reschedule the convention.  Now it has made the announcement that it will be back on August 3rd and 4th at a new location the Seaport World Trade Center. So keep that weekend free and be Boston Strong and support this show.

BCC 2013: August 3-4, 2013. Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA

First, we wish to thank all our fans who supported The Boston Comic Con 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!

We're moving! The Seaport World Trade Center is the new home of Boston Comic Con! It features more parking, easier highway access, as well as a direct stop in front of the venue on the MBTA Silver Line in Boston's historic waterfront district.

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, Frank Cho, 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, Cully Hamner, Barry Kitson, Paul Gulacy, James O'Barr, Howard Chaykin, Dave Johnson, Terry Moore, and Michael Golden! That's just the beginning. Keep an eye open as more guests join us leading up to the show.

A thank you and a shout out to The Walking Dead's Laurie Holden who will be coming back to the support Boston and The BCC! We are also in the process of adding more celebrity guests. Be patient, as it takes a little bit more time to book celebrities (welcome to Hollywood). We'll keep you posted.

We will of course continue with our great programming events like the BCC 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 2, 2013 to do so. Keep watching our Facebook and Twitter feeds for more info as we grow the guest list between now and then.

For those of you who still haven't purchased tickets, you can do so on our website: www.bostoncomiccon.com .

We're coming back bigger, better, and more exciting than ever!
