Altered Reality Entertainment presents ComiCONN “A Show for the Fans by the Fans!” ™ at Foxwoods Resort Casino. ComiCONN returns for it’s 8th show this June 10th & 11th, 2017. Connecticut ComiCONN is an annual convention focusing primarily on comic books and their creators, along with pop culture memorabilia, gaming, science fiction, fantasy and action films, television programs and cosplay.
ComiCONN “A Show for the Fans by the Fans!” was created by Erik Yacko in 2009. ComiCONN’s name came from adding an extra “N” to the end of the word “comicon.” ComiCONN began in 2010 as a one-day event. In 2014, it expanded to a three-day event in Bridgeport.
This isn’t the first time ComiCONN has been at a casino. In 2015, it took place at Mohegan Sun. In 2016, Connecticut ComiCONN has joined forces with Altered Reality Entertainment and together will present this year’s show.
ComiCONN is proud to announce that this year’s 2017 event at Foxwoods is being dedicated to the memory of Carrie Fisher, beloved star of the Star Wars franchise, in partnership with NAMI (the National Institute of Mental Health.)
