In just over three weeks, Sue and I will be making a visit to Niagara Falls to attend and cover the Niagara Falls Comic Con! We’re both looking forward to this day trip, seeing some old friends, familiar faces, and meeting some new folks!
The event is scheduled for June 9th at the Scotiabank Convention Center, Hall C on Stanley Avenue. General admission tickets are available on the website for $15 as well as at the door. You can also trick out your membership as you see fit by adding in Q&As, photo-ops and autographs. I kind of like this idea, you only pay for what you actually plan on doing, hence the lower ticket price.
I’m not a wrestling fan, but there’s a WWE Legends Q&A Session and screening of Classic Matches which features Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine & “The Genius” Lanny Poffo!
These special event tickets, there is also one with Burt Ward (Robin), which includes a screening of the original Batman movie, and a Q&A with Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager and the Stargate franchise) are $20 per, but instead of including these in the admission ticket, you can pick or choose if you want to add them.
The photo-ops being presented are kind of unique as well. We’re all familiar with green-screen (which means don’t wear your Green Lantern shirt in the pics!!) in this case they are putting you on the bridge of Voyager with the Doctor (Robert Picardo), racing from zombies with Walking Dead’s Carl (Chandler Riggs), in the Batcave with Burt Ward, in Bayside High School with Screech (Dustin Diamond) or in the ring with the Dream Team, Brutus ‘The Barber’ Beefcake & Greg ‘The Hammer’ Valentine! These photo-ops which sound very fun, I know Sue and I will probably be getting a couple are only $20!
For the horror fan, there is the Ultimate Texas Chainsaw Massacre VIP package that includes a photo-op with Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and Teri McMinn, an after-party as well as a Q&A with them, and a screening of the film! NOT BAD! This is put on by MacabreCon in conjunction with the Comic Con.
On top of that you have Artist Alley, vendors, displays and the geniuses behind the upcoming Dead Before Dawn 3D (currently in Cannes!) April Mullen and Tim Doiron!
We’re looking forward to meeting as many of these folks as we can, chatting with them, and hopefully getting a quick podcast chat out of them, as well as chronicling the con for you.
But if you can, head on out to it, show your support, and have a good time…
I plan on doing some comic shopping, other geek stuff, and snapping lots of pics to document the event, and plaster all over our posts about it!
We hope to see you there! There’s still time to buy your ticket!!! Don’t miss out! Check them out here!
