As you know, I’m a longtime geek, and fairly local (I’ve been around) to the Hampton Roads area for the past 25 years or so more or less, so I’m always looking for new and/or fun things to do in Virginia, and the geekier the better. So of course I’m going to be going to/and hyping up the Hampton Comicon, even if I wasn’t going to be a part of the show.
Local and local ish geeks should come out to the Hampton Convention Center this upcoming Saturday, October 15, for a day of nerdy awesomeness. There’s going to be comic book creators there such as Reilly Brown (Deadpool) Nancy Collins (Vampirella) and many more, Batmobiles, a Cosplay Contest, Vendors to buy all sorts of cool comic books and comic book related things, and panels. One I’d suggest checking out will be the Star Wars: Rogue One discussion panel that I’m going to be one of the hosts of, but there’s also a whole lineup of panels as well including ones on diversity in comics, the magical worlds of Harry Potter and LOTR, and much more. Also, if you’re really feeling lucky, there’s a comic book trivia contest as well, which I also plan on attending, with a lot of great prizes attached for that as well.
