Comic Con is coming to Ocean City on December 9th 2017. Held at the Grand Hotel and Spa, the very first Ocean City Comic Con will boast comic creators, artists, cosplay, anime screenings, panels, and more, at a family friendly price at the door.
The convention features an exciting selection of guests and events sure to be a big hit with attendees. Special guest Greg LaRocque will be in attendance. LaRocque is best known for his work on The Flash, but has worked for both Marvel and DC as well as being a fixture on the indie comic scene. Several indie Comic publishers and creators have signed on as well, such as; Buz Hasson co-creator of The Living Corpse, Visionary Comics, PLB Comics, Underground Comixxx, and many more. Along with meeting guests, attendees will have access to anime screenings throughout the day, panels happening every hour, a costume contest with prizes, vendors of geeky goods, and much more.
Cosplay has become a huge part of the convention experience, and the Ocean City Comic Con will be a hub for costuming fun. A cosplay contest with prizes will be held, and those who show up to the con in costume will receive one dollar off admission. Professional cosplayers, Katie Coe Cosplay, Kevin D Cosplay, Carter Cosplay, as well as the 501st Legion (Star Wars costuming club) and others will be in attendance to take pictures with attendees and discus the art of costuming.
Ocean City Comic Con strives to not only bring geek culture to the shore, but also to serve our community. Attendees who bring a non-perishable food item for Diakonia Inc. will receive one dollar off the admission price. Additionally, one dollar of each full-priced admission will be donated directly to the Hero Initiate, which creates a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.
This inaugural one-day event promises to bring together locals and those coming from out of town alike to celebrate pop culture right in the heart of Ocean City Maryland.
