Take a trip to Allentown for the Great Allentown Comic Con

February 28, 2012 by  

The 2012 Spring Bash of the Great Allentown Comic Con will take place at the Merchants Square Mall concert hall on March 17 from 10 am-5 pm. Tickets are $8 or free for those 12 and under when accompanied by an adult.

Comic conventions are becoming more and more frequent in many communities, the granddaddy being the San Diego Comic Con which draws thousands from all over the world. The Great Allentown Comic Con is the biggest in this area.

As with most comic conventions, guests are encouraged to dress up in the costume of their favorite comic or movie character. Everyone who attends will also have the chance to win door prizes. The Comic con will feature some of the most popular and talented comic book artists and writers; fans will have to opportunity to get up close and personal with them to discuss their work. Featured artists and writers who will be attending include Mike Colston, Jamal Igle, Brimstone and Donyae Coles.

There will be a large vendors section, which will be selling comics, memorabilia, action figures, posters, DVDs, photographs and other ephemera. Most likely, vendors will come from all over Pennsylvania including Stroudsburg to sell their comic-related products. Brochure printing companies in the area are likely already providing the brochure for the Great Allentown Comic Con. If businesses do have products that are comic-related and can’t attend, then they can always become a sponsor; sponsors are mentioned in all the event literature and can even send along freebies to be handed out to guests.
