Two local promoters have teamed up to create a Washington, D.C. area comic convention, with the first event to be held May 2, the day after Free Comic Book Day.
Marc Nathan (Baltimore Comic-Con) and Brett Carreras (Virginia Comicon) are hosting the DC Comicon on Sunday, May 2, 2010, from 10-5 at George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax. Admission to the show is $5. Guests include Frank Cho, Herb Trimpe, J.G. Jones, the Luna Brothers, and Jo Chen. There’s also a sanctioned Magic the Gathering tournament (entry fee $19-22) and a show-exclusive variant-cover Witchblade #136.
I won’t be able to go — Free Comic Book Day always is a great, but tiring, event, so I’ll need the day after to relax — but I’m glad to see more events in the area.
