5/25/16: Win Tickets to Northeast Comic Con

Did you know Comic Con is coming to the Northeast and will be at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, MA on June 18th and 19th?  As one of my lucky readers I am giving you a chance to win one of 2 sets of 4 tickets to go on either the 18th or 19th.
There will be lots of family fun, celebrity meet and greets, and lots of cool collectibles.  I personally am most excited about meeting Mickey Dolenz who is celebrating the 50th anniversary of "The Monkees"!!!  I loved The Monkees when I was a kid.  I always listened to their song where they said they were coming to my town but they never did.  I watched the show all the time and loved all of them so this is a childhood dream to be able to meet Mickey.
Gamers new and “vintage” will enjoy free-play videogame arcade and tournaments, and little ones will enjoy children’s activities and watching all the intricate costumes.  Since it is Father’s Day, surprise dad with an on-the-spot gift from the 150 vendors of vintage and modern toys, comic books, collectibles, art, jewelry, fashion and popular cultural artifacts.  In between shopping, everyone is welcome to free live music and entertainment in the Fez Room – a great place for parents to relax and showcase your pop culture knowledge.  James Tolkan from the “Back To The Future” trilogy will be there.
Some additional celebrity guests will be there including Chase Masterson from “General Hospital,” “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” Doctor Who’s audio adventures, and CW’s “The Flash”, Jon Walmsley, best known for his nine seasons on “The Waltons” and as the voice of lovable Christopher Robin on Disney’s “Winnie the Pooh” TV series.  Guests will also be able to meet actress Kathy Garver, fondly remembered for her starring role as teenage niece Catherine “Cissy” Davis to series character Uncle Bill Davis in “Family Affair” on CBS in the 1960s. Barry Bostwick  from “Rocky Horry Picture Show” and “Spin City” will also be there.
In addition to the inimitable pop culture expert Gary Sohmers, the show’s producer, other celebrity guests include Jeff Kline ("Transformers - Robots In Disguise," Darby Pop Publisher), Mike Lopez (Kids Comic Con), Rob Bruce ("AMC's Comic Book Men"), Reb Brown ("Captain America"), Somerville maskmaker Eric Bornstein and special FX artisan Tyler Green (Syfy "Face Off") along with puppeteers Bill Diamond ("Fraggle Rock,” “Little Shop of Horrors”) and Noel MacNeal (“The Muppets,” “Bear in the Big Blue House”). Kids will also enjoy meeting Disney artist Philo Barnhart (“Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and the Beast”) and Alex Simmons (“Archie” “Blackjack”) and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” artist Steve LaVign. 
Northeast Comic Con will have lots of attractions for young fans.  With free parking Northeast Comic Con ticket prices are among the lowest in the industry.  Saturday adult advance online tickets are $18 and Sunday adult advance tickets are only $10.  Adult weekend passes are $25 in advance online; children’s weekend passes (ages 7-13) are $12 and children six and under are always free with a paid adult.
