Celebrated actors to pop by for Comic Con

October 21, 2012 by  

The Rhode Island Comic Con will take place at the Rhode Island Convention Center at the start of November, featuring several guests from TV and movies, including Robert Picardo and John DeLancie from Star Trek, Peter Mayhew from Star Wars, Dirk Benedict and Richard Hatch from Battlestar Galactica, Gil Gerard, and the Power Rangers.

There will also be appearances from several comic book artists, a video game tournament, movie cards, photo and autograph sessions, film screenings, discussion panels, and face painting. Guest can expect to see vendors selling comic books, games, toys, photographs, and a variety of pop-culture items.

Comic conventions are very popular in the United States and the Rhode Island Comic Con is no exception. The organizers have also made attendees aware that costume contests will be taking place on both days of the event, with one especially for kids being held on the Sunday. This will no doubt appeal to fans of ‘cosplay’ – the practice of dressing up as, and imitating the behavior of, famous characters.

Organizers are likely to be working with Providence printing companies to prepare for this popular annual event. Printing companies will be able to provide services such as poster printing and flyer printing to help promote the event in the local community.

The Rhode Island Comic Con will take place on the weekend of November 3 – 4. Tickets are $20 each day or $30 for two days. For more information, contact Steven Perry at 508-982-0396.
